There is no greater harm than being unappreciated, especially by the people we wish to be noticed and appreciated by. We can be unappreciated from love, from our work and performances, unappreciated from our efforts and all that we do. Yes, we all have that sense of being unappreciated and yet, I believe the greatest disappointment is how much men do not appreciate women and their efforts.
Most men do not realise the amount of pain that women go through for their sake, the amount of trouble and great suffering they go through for them. You may find these days a lot of men who beat their wives because they cannot control themselves, because they are drunk and just because they feel like it and want something to punch on. Is that what women have been degraded to? Is that what they are sentenced to? Enduring more torment for men than necessary, to live like a punching bag? Is that what they are worth? Pain and suffering? And for what? For what?
No, women are not appreciated like they should be, they are not given the respect they deserve, instead they are treated like animals, terrorized and abused. Women are raped everyday, and that is not only women, but young children and kids who are molested by some perverts who have no shame; the lowest of the lowest. Is that really the way to treat women, is that what they are subjected to? Abuse, pain, torment? And all that for what? Women keep up with all that for what?
No, we do have the power to leave, we do have the power to make a life for ourselves, and yet we chose to keep up with it, we chose to keep up with the abuse and pain and the in-appreciation from men. It’s true, men have the power to hurt us, but only because we give them that power, only because we let them have that power.
To all the men out there who have so little appreciation for the women in their lives and in the world in general, you only have the power to hurt us because we let you have it. The only reason you can hurt us is because we let you do that. You might think we are stupid in doing that, but someone’s got to have hope in this world; hope that someday you might change, open your eyes and see that we deserve to be appreciated and respected.
