Tough Love

Sometimes as parents we have to embrace the fact that tough love is part of teaching our kids valuable lessons.There never seem to understand the reason for saying NO or why they are being punished.Or should I rephrase and say the understand it however they refuse to acknowledge the fact that there are consequences to their actions.Raising a teen is hard, what’s worse is raising a teen that has his parents especially his mother’s flare for being dramatic attitude.My personality is truly of a sarcastic nature and people tend to take it for being rude or just not being nice. But in fact I am that super cool, fun loving Mom. I give my child enough rope to live his life and make mistakes, but it’s only long enough to ensure that he learns from his mistakes.I don’t ask for much from him, simply do some chores around the house and make sure he exells at school and when I say exell, I don’t mean he has to be an A student, I simply mean he should do his best.Generally speaking my child really proves his salt, but then the teen in him breaks through and yanks that rope and take things to another extreme which I sometimes allows, I allow this, because it’s the only way a child will learn responsibility on their own.As parents we can guide them on that rope only until a certain point, but then it’s time to let go, and they quickly realize the meaning of tough love. They quickly appreciate the small things we, as parents do for them.This is when they realise what unconditional love is..

Why is a Book judged by it’s cover?

Have you ever wondered why a book is judged by it’s cover?

It seems it has become socially acceptable to judge people by their outer appearances. Some people are ridiculed to the point that they are enslaved to a mentality that keeps them imprisoned in their own mind set of not being worthy as a person, for not measuring up to certain standards which is what society expects.

Whether you aren’t pretty enough or skinny enough has nothing to do with the fact that one might be intellectually smarter than your average picture perfect people.

The lack of respect shown to some people when they perhaps don’t meet a certain criteria in certain social or even professional circles are overwhelming to say the least, because everything that glitters are certainly not gold..

The English idiom “don’t judge a book by its cover” is a metaphorical phrase that means one shouldn’t prejudge the worth or value of something by its outward appearance alone. For example, “That man may look very small and insignificant, but don’t judge a book by its cover – he’s a very powerful man in his circle”. Wikipedia

Her mind wonders as the tunes of Oasis – Don’t look back in Anger play in the background, wondering if escaping the darkness would release her heartache and pain.

She is carrying many years on her face, it’s quite evident that life hasn’t been kind to her. She has carried her sadness and anger for far to many years.

Would she carry her regrets to the end as sadness and anger feeds her soul or will she escape the clutches of the poison that she consumes so willingly.

Will she exchange her tears for the happiness, love and acceptance she so desperately desires..

When she’s sad..

She was never meant for the love that she so greatly desired. She carried her sadness on her sleeve, it was always evident from a very young age.

Years of emotional abuse has stripped her of all her confidence and self worth and her whole reason for living.

Though she chooses to walk in these shoes, she finds it rather difficult to take them off and leave it behind. There is some sort of attachment or sentimental craving for sadness, it seems to feed her soul.

She is present though her thoughts are far, she is preoccupied by the notion of loneliness and her craving for acceptance and love..

She remains sad..

Sadness is a heavy burden to carry..

My sadness has been carried with me for many a year. Every year it seems to wallow in my heart, tears are hard to control as they run down my curvy face. My source of sadness probably stems from many years of being physically and emotionally abused by my parents, it was a cycle I could never escape, it grew on me, it was something I craved and still crave. I’m attracted to emotional abusers, I can’t seem to escape the vicious cycle I’m in. It’s tiring to cry so much, one would’ve thought that one only has so many tears, though 30 odd years proved the contrary. I’m lost hear alit like Alice in Wonderland, going down the spiral of a rabbit hole.

I’ve never understood why people cut their own cords, but it’s easy to understand now. The pain and heartache that sadness brings cuts like a sharp knife, leaving the scar to bleed out, the only way to stop that bleeding is to take your own life.

People that are left behind always say that it’s selfish for someone to take their own life and yes in many ways it rings true especially if you leave loved ones behind. But I understand that sadness, I can relate to why people do it. Sadness is a heavy burden to carry for the rest of your life.

Mom’s the word..

Moms wear many titles and tackle a slew of responsibilities. It starts from you doing everything from dressing and feeding your kids to picking them up from school, helping with homework and tackle the sports fields. Then there’s the household to run and maintain.

During the midst of all these crazy moments, there’s very little time for you, even though selfcare is essential for our well being.

As mother’s we somehow take on a multitude of tasks whilst putting our needs on hold and sometimes we loose ourselves or our own identities.

While I’m sure many mother’s give up much more than their identities for their families it’s very important for mothers to also take care of themselves.

I feel that sometimes I am so focused on everyone else that when I look into the mirror I don’t recognise myself anymore. Have you ever felt this way?

Women are warriors so it’s ok for us to take some time for ourselves to ensure health minds, healthy bodies, healthy living..
