I love creating things, be it using paper and pens the analog way or coding it all the digital way, but above all I love writing down the gazillions of thoughts buzzing in my head 24*7 about anything and everything. Poems aren't my forte but I may try my hand at it, for I fall under code-loving-writer category.
You need to love yourself first, then only you can love others. You have to accept yourself, have a rational love for yourself, you are not redundant, you are beautiful and unique and created in the image of God.
The essence of love is to seek my neighbour's highest good. My neighbour could be my life-partner, my parent, anyone. You can never stop loving.
When you show your indifference, you show how that person is not important to you.
Love does no harm to his neighbour
Love needs law for direction
Law needs love for inspiration
How should one react when men around them say that "Women are hired in the IT industry just for companies to maintain their ratio"?
Do we not have the skills or work as hard as men do?
Just because women take out the time to manage both the deliverables at work and cook/clean/care for the household, it doesn't mean that women are worth lesser or skilled lesser and superficially hired.
Just because the man spends late hours at night working on fixing bugs while the woman completes debugging at her end, wraps up extra reading for the job, and schedules her meetings earlier in the day to log off at 6 pm to go cook dinner, doesn't mean she is not skilled enough or hired for namesake.
The loyalty and tenacity with which women take up tasks and see them through the finish line often get overlooked. The success of the project then gets accredited to the senior men on the team who either gave the task to her in the first place or simply did their part of the job working alongside her.
In fact, if a man is more experienced than a woman of the same age, it would also be because he didn't have to log off early to cook/clean at home because his mom/wife did that for him!
In an ideal environment, it would be demanded that the man also tries to complete his work before 6 pm and help with the household chores. Would we then ever say that the team has a soft corner towards the men for allowing him to log off early? No! Instead we would praise such a man for being a progressive husband/father!
If women do the exact same thing, we are called the weakling of the team.
Fellow women out there, Don't ever let what men say get into your heads, they know lesser (true in most cases) and able to handle lesser things on their plates so they find silly statements to justify their stressful positions at work.
There are times when we feel burdened with the no of to-do lists we create and hardly check. Be positive. Good things will happen
Every person is endowed with a different talent. You have no right to belittle anyone.
Isn't showing mercy or being 'kind' a choice? Can't people who are cruel to others - be kind to others? At least to their own. Is it a gift? Being merciful should never be combined with patronizing, which means to look down on others, or condescending.
A shepherd is a leader. When you are given a position of leadership, it is not to demand respect and authority over others, but to care for everyone in the group, to find those who may be lost in the group, to guide and bring forth the best in your team members.
