As I’ve set back and studied how we handle ourselves around men, I found that we appreciate ourselves less.
For instance, when get into heated arguments with our partners; we tend to forget how we feel about the situation. Men cheat on us and expect us to forgive them just like that! They don’t consider our feelings about the situation. They think forgiveness is enough, meanwhile they cheat knowingly they will ask for forgiveness and be granted.
Some even buy us gifts to show how sorry they are, which I think is another way of men insulting us as women. I mean why don’t you buy us gifts to show you appreciate us even when there’s no argument? Ladies, know your self-worth, don’t let a perfume or chocolate buy your joy if he doesn’t show appreciation of you even more.
One more thing is about Sugar daddies, I think parents and the government must do more to protect young women from being exploited and used by older men.
With the higher HIV infection rate, more abortions and fatherless children; it’s time that real men stood up to protect their daughters. Sugar daddies should be named and shamed wherever they operate. If the law permits; they should be jailed for messing with our young ones. Women represent life and without them; there is no future for humanity.
Parents must teach their children from an early age, more specially girls that in this life there is no free lunch. Only hard work will ensure their future. Quick money from sugar daddies might seem cool for now, but it only lasts a while. The bad consequences of having relationships with sugar daddies are greater.
Girls, please don’t let the love for money and expensive gifts blind you to the realities of life. I know, you suffer from poverty; but it’s not an excuse to sell yourself to older men for a piece of pie that will only last for a while. Work hard for a better future and say no to old timers.
My point is; know who you are and what you are worth. Know that no one can buy your happiness. There is no store where men can buy your feelings and return them back when they see faults or go to the fitting room to see if you really fit in.
Guard your heart for it is your life!
