Over history, the rights of women has been something that needs to be fought for. Women are treated differently than men, they are not as appreciated as men are. Stereotypes say that men are better, men are stronger, their ability is better than women. People have grown to believe in this stereotype.

Our lives are marked by events that make us grow and mature. We cannot grow if we are too comfortable. Only by being out of our comfort zone will we notice substantial transformations in ourselves.

Perhaps I am rambling. Perhaps no one will read this far, and perhaps those who do cannot fathom what my point is. My point: appearance has the ability to dictate the oddest parts of your life, but once you can look past the things about yourself that you don 't like and focus on the things that you do, things will begin to look better. You will begin to look better. I don 't know.
In my mind, I understood he only wanted what was best for me, but I was emotionally drained. He was already expecting my failures and mistakes. I experienced difficulties finding out who I was because I was too preoccupied with doing everything my father was telling me. I felt so cheated, the life I wish I lived was snatched from me.

I think that almost everybody had a time that a friend was disloyal to him or her once or that you don’t want to be nice anymore because you always have a negative response when you try to reach out.
