There is No wrong way to be a woman; neither is nature bias to have made some women and some men. But the social construct that looks beyond fairness and order has eroded the possibility of having evergreen cooperation, marred with inequality targeted at denigrating the role of women. Women's duties as a mom conditions them to serve but remain unserved while their time flies with little or no consideration for self-care as they spend most of their time giving care to the loved ones while their plight to get a similar dose of attention is not considered. Empathy is the ultimate drive that spurs women to action which is the reason we love unconditionally, care unconditionally, showcasing our natural inclination to enabling a healthy household for our families.
Putting God first, learning to love yourself , and never giving up on you.
