Remember that other people are responsible for their own feelings. You have no control over other people's feelings and it is not your duty to make them feel better.

now if i could only LISTEN to that...

Learn this Now!

In this culture, women are taught and expected to play the role of peacekeeper, endless giver, nurturer, soothsayer, eternal-perfect-mother, etc. Women are wrongly expected to be prostitutes to the feelings of their boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, children, bosses, teachers, siblings, etc. This cultural expectation destroys our innate sensitivity, intuition, and natural powers/gifts.

If you can learn this lesson to not take responsiblity for other's feelings, NOW, you will omit from your life -- years- weeks-hours-and-days of terrible pain and negativity. All for nothing.

A lot of women I know took 40 years or more to learn this, and I consider it a blessing that the women around age 20 can be given this knowledge so early in their lives. Accept this gift from those of us who have passed before you. Take it! Absorb it! Free yourself!
