A Little Message for My Fellow Women

If there's one thing I hate about being a woman, it's the assumption that we have to wait for change and wait for what we want.

Can't get married because we have to be proposed to. Load of bull, if you feel like your relationship isn't progressing you propose to your partner. The worst thing that could happen is they say no and if just being together isn't enough for you then it's time to move on.

Can't have kids because you have to wait for a man who wants kids. No, there are so many children who need homes out there. Adoption doesn't have to be a last resort, it can be the key to not only your happiness but the happiness of a child out there who's just waiting for a family to call their own. You can be that for them. Especially older kids who struggle to find families.

Can't have your own business or your own empire because you belong at home with the kids. NO. Hell no. You can have it all. Don't ever forget that. You can be a mother, a bu…

Maintaining Your Own Identity While Loving Another

Being in a relationship and being in love is one of the most beautiful things in life. Being able to share a part of yourself with someone and find solace in that person. But what about when the partnership has a heavy dose of codependency?

It's easy to get lost in your relationship and usually it's just a symptom of it being new and exciting. But when it carries on through the entirety of the relationship it's anything but healthy. Your identity and who you are as a single entity is lost to who you are within your relationship. You no longer know how to operate on your own, you only do things that are approved of or involve your partner.

While we all like to say that we're completely independent no matter who we're around, sometimes we fall into that trap and it's hard to get out of. I've seen it happen to people around me and it's hard to watch. They became so sucked into their relationship or marriage that when that person was no longer around or the…

Sexism In Politics

It's a tale as old as time. Woman has to jump through hoops and look impeccable while doing so while a man can just stand there and still be considered more qualified than her just because she's a woman.

It's election season and you know what that means: Mud slinging and public outcry from all sides. Now, I'm not going to be talking about my own political views here. That's not what this is about. But anyone who spends any amount of time on this blog can pretty much tell where I stand on the political spectrum. It's not hard to see. No, the thing that I want to talk about is gender equality and the rampant sexism that we're seeing in this election. It's so blatant that there's no way anyone could pretend not to see it.

Hillary Clinton is more than qualified to run for president. Hell, she's probably one of the most qualified nominees we've ever seen. But that doesn't matter, right? No, because everyone seems hellbent on making it seem li…
