Kill a woman’s insecurities and impart balance to her life #WomenEmpowerment #BlogchatterA2Z

Women Empowerment

I don’t know how to say this but sometimes I meet extremely depressed women on the verge of trying to end their lives. I am a very emotional person and to handle them often sucks life out of me. I send them back home feeling lighter, but my mind, soul and heart are so occupied with their thoughts. Umpteen questions hover my brain and these girls over a period of time have made me evolve into a life coach from a personality coach.

To understand their pain, I have to get into their shoes and trust me when I say this, many a time, I realize, this pain of theirs is self-imposed. Since their intellect is not put to adequate use they weave stories in their mind and assume them to be totally true. This makes them sulk and further sink down the dungeon of depression which makes their lives and the lives of their loved ones a hell. 

Now, why this happens? While the spouse gets busy rising up the success ladder the equally educated wife takes care of the kids who too get busier as they grow up. The feeling that no one has time for her and is interested in her, she feels the void which may either inspire her or depress her.

The first step to heal them is to listen to them patiently and tell them that you believe them. You are a stranger aids them to pour their heart out more candidly. Once you win their trust, start to shift their focus on themselves, their hobbies, their passion, and their dreams. They might say they have none but we keep prodding. 

Eventually, they speak up like Aditi did. She loved choreography and starting dance classes at her home in the evening gave her so much solace that she took it to unimaginable heights by opening her own dance academy.  Once we could pull her out of depressive thoughts, we attacked her self weaved story and she merrily agreed that there was actually no one in her husband’s life, she has imagined it out of her own insecurities.

The point is not this, the point is that she regained her ability to judge and make the decision of right or wrong and also stand on her own feet. So she is empowered. Traditionally an Indian woman has been denied both these things and this the reason for her today’s bad plight.

If each one of us lends a helping hand to anyone we know in need, we will make this world a little better. Won’t you like to contribute?
