In this life, there are a lot of unwritten rules about everything. So many things we have come to believe in and assume to be true without knowing or questioning the source.

Who said women say Yes when they mean no and say No when they mean to say Yes? This is a stereotype that I hear most of the time and at times when I say something, it is challenged to gauge whether really I mean what I say. Women have also been abused because someone assumed that they said no when they actually meant to say yes. This is very sad and it is important to respect consent and take people at their word.

Who said women are after the man’s money?  Its interesting how intentions for relationships have transformed into ‘Men are after sex, whereas women are after money.’ Whatever happened to true and genuine love with the right intentions?

Who said women dress up for others? Most people believe that women dress  to please all the time. That she cannot dress to feel good about herself and because it makes her feel beautiful.

Who said women are their own worst enemies? This is a phrase I have heard going round a couple of times. However, from experience, I have heard more of good things women achieved together than where they actually brought each other down.

Who said you cannot be you without being judged? Before making up or exercising stereotypes, ask yourself this: WHO SAID? AND WHY? Then this world will be a better place with fewer assumptions. To get a male perspective on this, please read Mitchell’s post HERE
