I had something really interesting to share which has been a part of my life too.
When i was growing up, as we all know we get many unnecessary grooming tips which does nothing but push us women to such strange darkness that not only do we harm ourselves and our desires but also become toxic for other women in the society.
One such example is being a certain way to be valued and respected by boys, and men.
And all these came to me from women and her baggage of bad experiences with bad men!
This is like a never ending cycle of brainwashing which has successfully captured women in their own jails!
I was told that i should behave a certain way, express a certain way, dress a certain way, and treat people a certain way coz otherwise men in my lives wont respect me or value me for what i am!
When i had a boyfriend, i was told i shouldn’t be so giving and open to him before marriage coz in that case he will lose his interest and may be his respect too!
In that case i became super vigilant about how my male peers are treating me.
And i refused to step into that darkness presented to me by my dear ones ever.
And with age and time, I realised , my value and my respect is sooooo much more within me than anyone who crossed path with me.
It is not always our responsibility to be likeable! Taking care of random details, and changing the way i love and i care.
I realised that I don’t need to play the “hard to get” girl to be respected.
It’s up to the man’s grooming, it depends on how he treats people and not how i make them treat us!!!
I don’t know how well i can write.. but these are real and raw observations from my own life.
And the painting speaks of the same from my perspective!
