Hurting not working
Putting any political affiliations I have aside, I thought that this was a great phrase and it made me curious about how it could apply to the lives of women. How are our actions ‘hurting rather than working?’
It made me think of:
Road rage – when someone shouts at someone else because of a mistake they’ve made on the road, it never achieves anything but embarrassment and bad feeling – that must be hurting and not working.
Trying to please people – when we want to make everyone happy and end up not pleasing them or ourselves – that must be hurting and not working
Taking people for granted – when we save the moaning, lashing out and unreasonable behaviour for those closest to us – that must be hurting and not working.
Let’s not mirror the current political situation – Whoever said ‘no pain, no gain’, was wrong! Let’s make it work, rather than hurt.
Keep me posted on what you do to make this happen.
