Men Versus Women 10/26/2010
On Saturday Brawn & I went over to friend’s house to play poker. At one point the conversation shifted to men versus women. Little did I know, Brawn’s buddy was more than slightly prejudiced against women.
This was a bit of a predicament for me. His buddy knows what I do for a living. He knows how I think & yet he still chose to ‘go there.’
I allowed him to rile me up, piss me off & might I say, I put up a damn good argument. After 30 minutes of frustrating conversation, I demanded we leave. & we did.
I was so mad. In fact the last time I remember being that angry was over something that happened with my mom in elementary school.
On top of that, I was mad that I was mad. How could I so easily let him rob me of my peaceful nature simply because I was angry that I wasn’t being heard?
But I how can I be heard by someone who has no desire to listen?
I wanted to share this story with you from a place of love, not anger. It is just now that I am able to do so.
I can’t do anything to shift Brawn’s buddy’s perception. But what I can do is remain strong in my beliefs that men & women are equal. That there is more power in any situation when we can both work together provide peace, together among this planet.
It is my belief that we were not put here to battle one another, to be afraid of each other or bicker over who is stronger, smarter, better, faster or more evolved. I believe that we are here to collaborate. To prove to ourselves, the generations before us & after us that life is much better with masculine & feminine balance.
Looking back, I feel as though I sank down to a level I no longer chose to acknowledge was there. I know now, that I will never visit that realm again.
