I saw this article, “A Day Without Whiny Women in America” the day after it was published, inside Facebook’s trending feeds. Curious, I clicked on it and after about 30 seconds of reading it, sighed.
Unaware of this “Day without women”, I completely agree with the article…who has time to take off of work to make the point that this planet cannot do without women? Guess what, people, we can’t do without men either…or children, or plants or animals or the sun or the moon, the planets or the universe.
If you are a women who is treated badly in life and feels unloved and unappreciated, there is a solution that will be more practical than “striking” from life for a day.
Change your circumstances. Notice I did not say change your attitude. I said, change your circumstances. Take it from one who speaks from experience.
Sometimes the Universe does it for you. I lived in a horrible roommate situation my husband refused to resolve, allowing two parasitic women to have free room and board for an unbelievable 13 years. I tried EVERYTHING I legally could to get rid of them short of getting a Sheriff to throw them out of the house…being nice, not being nice, pressure, rental agreements, lord knows nothing worked. Short of threatening divorcing my husband, I put the pressure on him to talk to them. He’s one of those guys who’s too nice and only towards the end did he talk to them – of course to no resolution.
Finally, unable to rent out the two rooms they were squatting in to help pay the mortgage, we lost the house when the bank foreclosed. As stressful and terrible as that experience was, it was the only way short of something very bad happening to them that they would leave. My husband and I left first and the bank was left with the problem of removing their carcasses before cleaning up the disgusting mess they had left behind.
It is an extreme example of getting out of a stagnant situation that is making one feel frustrated, helpless and unheard, but it makes the point. No one person was going to get rid of them for me, but when the time came, I saw the sacrifice of our home of 16 years was the only way to move forward in life and stop being a helpless, whiny woman. Like the article linked above says, you have to be a “Renaissance woman”. They are “winners, not whiners; leaders, not followers; and most importantly, victors, not victims”.
Some women (and people in general, regardless of their sex), love to whine and bitch, but NO ONE likes to be around them (except other whiners and bitches), so take back your life from being a bitcher and be a doer. It will be so worth it in the end.
