I am still fine tuning some of the articles and women that we will show case this month. There are a few things we must talk about that kind of are back bones of us all male or female. Our parents. Yes the parents that you have and the atmosphere for how you were raised sets the forever tone of your existence. Don’t get me wrong you don’t have to be what your environment says you are but those who break from it do it because they work hard. It’s not something that you just do and its super easy. Only those who know better will do better. Those who know better and don’t make that choice. We all have choices.
What I love about this women’s month s that women are realizing more and more everyday that they are capable of anything. One of the things is left unchecked is our hearts. You can be a CEO of a big company and still have missing pieces of your heart that never really get filled. Let’s explore this more in detail.
How you’re raised says a lot. If you were in a single parent home you can be strong but admit that there was a few things that you missed. Having 2 involved parents is key. Involved parents who care about their children give children a level of confidence that can’t be described. They are usually more adjusted than those who are not. That doesn’t mean that 2 parent home kids are perfect and don’t have struggles because we ALL know they can. Having one of your parents absent for whatever reason is a struggle. You long for their presence. A child feels like they are the reason or feel unloved. That unloved feeling can have them reach for things in their life that isn’t healthy but it can also have them replace things too. For instance, a child could possibly turn to drugs to fill it but what is the difference between a person who reaches for drugs, sex, relationships or even things like education which seem to be good. Yes even things that come off as being a better option can be damaging as well. A person who school becomes their solace may get so wrapped into school that they aren’t even going for reasons to better themselves but just want to go to keep busy. What happens when they can’t get any more degrees? They end up substituting something else in its place. There is nothing wrong with education. The point is that lack of one thing can make you gravitate towards anything to fulfill a need. Parents are needed to help develop everyone. There are men and women out here needing the love of their parent and hurting in their lives because of it.
One of the other things surrounding parents is when a parent passes away. The hole that is left is indescribable. There are some wounded people walking around. Parents passing feels like you yourself have passed away and especially if it’s a mother. That void never is right. Some people respond to death in different ways. Some people seem fine but literally are never back to their usual selfs even years later. What you see as someone “acting out” could be them showcasing their hurt. What we label people does matter. I know of plenty who called others all kinds of stuff but had no idea that the one they were talking about was in deep hurt. If you do NOT know a person. I mean the type of know where you know their blood type and you see them being whatever in your mind to help, remember two things: you aren’t perfect and you need to attempt to aid in their healing and not in their down fall. To many times the ones that want to help aka talk behind people’s back especially in the name of prayer are the ones who need the deepest of knee time. Stay in your lane if you aren’t equipped to assist those in real love.
You can break things off with someone and still feel like you don’t have to go and collect pieces of you all over the country. However some bad breakups can leave people so super wounded that they cut off a new budding love from even coming into their lives. We all have seen the super jaded person. They seem so super closed off, bitter, and every negative thing you can think of. I know some people who have called women especially everything from hoes and bitches. The reason that irks me is for a few reasons, I’m not going to lie I have wanted to call another woman a bitch. It isn’t right but depending on what took place that is how I felt. However this is why I check myself. Calling another woman out of her name won’t fix the problem. So if I say it or a man says it, does that make the person saying it feel better? No. That woman can be a lot of things but I attempt to stick to the situation inside of defaulting to bitch.
When you break up and the “gloves” come off is when either that woman can move forward and began healing or get caught in the back and forth of labeling. Same for men who women want to call everything but what they momma named them. Break up sucks.Keep this rule in mind, if you don’t want to be called out your name refrain from doing the same. The second thing is yes the pain is strong but knowing you walked away without having to stoop to the other person’s level means a lot. It helps in your healing so while sorrys need to be given you won’t have to dish any out on the basis of an argument gone sour especially when 9 tines out of 10 first breakups result in getting back together.
There are a million ways a heart can be broken. We obviously didn’t talk about them all. There is one person responsible for our healing is that is us. YES, us. It seems unfair that others can be the cruelest and leave scars that we have to work through but the reality is that no one will come in and fix it but you. You can say that you are one way due to all kinds of factors but trust me when I say even the most supportive get tired of hearing the same stories. People check out. We often think they shouldn’t but they should. People don’t know how to do deal with broken pieces. People are dealing with enough even if you think that aren’t. Even in a marriage we put emphasis on them to be there but reality is they can’t fill your broken parts. You will never get the full response from them. If you try to keep pushing for it you and you alone will be looking crazy. Someone love for you can’t be measured in terms on how much junk from your pass you can dump ob them and they push the layers off of you. Even if you are doing your work to get it off of you, keep going. Your partner can have empathy but they aren’t built to be a fixer upper. This walk may have to be walked alone. Stop destroying your relationships by giving people the title of Mr. Fix it that don’t want it. They were designed to walk with you not hold your bags and love on you two. They are also not to use your bags or baggage against you either.
Check you. It’s not an easy thing. Professionals help people heal but again they assist not do the work, how much less pressure do we need to talk off those around us who have not one degree? Ladies especially we have to fight through the garbage that has been dumped into and on our lives. No it’s not fair but life isn’t fair. Would you rather be whole or walk with your holes where you and everyone can see? Take charge and know that life hurts. Know that things aren’t going to be easy. But you can take charge of your life. DO it today.
