Happy Thursday Everyone! Sorry about my lack of post this past week. I took some much needed time off while still very busy with Joyce's Closet and other projects I've been working on so the blog has been on the back burner, but still, very much on my mind.
On another note, there is something to be said about an independent woman, one who is educated, business savvy and doesn't rely on a man to meet her financial needs, but also one, who is pressured by the standards set by society on when certain time lines in her life should occur. Most of us are strictly bound by the conventional life planning--what one should do at certain age period that we end up making decisions that we look back on regretfully. Why should she be treated as if she is less than her male counterparts just for the mere fact that she isn't married even when she has attained a certain level of success? Studies have shown that women today receive 60% of university degrees and make up for half of the workplace, which means that women are putting their careers and themselves first before marriage and having babies.
On the flip side, men always talk about wanting a beautiful, intelligent and career focused woman, but are very intimidated by the same woman whom they speak of when she comes their way, or show no appreciation for her when they have her. Listen men, to be honest, it's quite simple what women want. Women are looking for partners who are romantic, loving, supportive, good communicators and also someone who will be helpful on the home front.
Although I realize that being married and raising a family is a task worth more accolades than it is given, women who are putting their education and careers first, should not be scrutinized, but rather praised in a society where independence is just a word used frivolously.
Just something that has been on my mind for a while.
