393. RESPECT

  • What´s wrong with men?
    Why do men get so angry with women? And I imagine women with men too! 
    But the thing is........many men mistreat, hit, and even come to the point of killing a woman.
    RESPECT
    In fact, why on earth do people kill each other? How can a person even think of taking someone´s life?
    That´s fucking crazy
    A person is born into this world, has a childhood, becomes an adult, has parents, brothers or sisters and friends……but then one day can be killed in the hands of another person.
    Something isn´t right in the society we live in.
    So, the question is, and this is what I mainly want to talk about :
    What goes on in a man´s head when he´s thinking of hurting someone; either psychologically or physically ?
    What makes a man become so violent to even think of hitting his wife…and perhaps killing her!
    Of coursethere are many reasons why men can go crazy. It can happen that the man is completely drunk  or has psychological problems.
    If they are having an argument, anything can happen because the man becomes aggressive.
    There is another serious problem in some societies.
    Apart from drinking a lot, people also take drugs…and then it´s so easy to flip one´s lid.
    But that doesn´t mean that men have the right to mistreat a woman; perhaps even in front of their children.
    Maybe there are men who think they must control women because they think women are the weaker sex and a man is much stronger.
    So, some men think they have the right to mistreat their partners just because they are men and because they feel that they are the big boss and women must accept this and obey men all the time.
    This is a very serious dilema in modern day societies beacuse there are so many sociological and psychological factors envolved.
    Then, what is the solution to this very serious problem.
    I think it´s very important to start with education. Children must learn that men and women are born equal.
    Perhaps it´s also a good idea that before starting a relationship or getting married, men and women must take a psychological test just to be on the safe side.
    Companies make future employees take a psychological test before being part of the company.
    I think it´s a good idea to have this requirement before living together, or getting married and forming a family.
    How many women must die in a year in the hands of men?
    I´m sure there are men who need psychological help?
    In any kind of relationship, there must be love and especially RESPECT.
    It´s perfectly natural to argue about things….but with respect.
    And of course, never go to bed angry.

    RESPECT
    If there is no love or respect in a relationship, then it´s better to make a change before things get worse.
    Women must seek help if there are problems at home
    Try to make up and kiss and live life in harmony.
    Remember: The first rule is…RESPECT.

392. HOW MUCH DADDY?

One day a little boy was anxiously waiting for his father to get home from work.
As soon as the father arrived, the little boy ran to his father and asked him:
“Daddy, how much do you earn per hour at work?”

His father looked at him and said: “Look son, your mother doesn´t even know that.
Now go off and don´t bother me with silly questions. I´m a little tired”.
But, the little boy insisted: “Daddy, it´s just a simple question and I´m curious.
How much do you earn per hour?”

In the end, his father told his son that he earned 20€ per hour.
Then his son asked him: Could you lend me 10€?”
On hearing the question, the father got angry and said: “So, that´s why you want to know how much I earn!
“Go to bed and don´t bother me anymore”.

Later on, the father felt bad talking to his son in that way.
Perhaps his son just wanted the money to buy something!
So, he went to his son´s room and gave him the 10€. "I´m sorry for getting angry".
“Thanks daddy. His son was so happy.

Then his son took out another 10€ bill from under his pillow and said: “Now that I finally have 20€, could l buy an hour of your time?”

The father was dumbfounded. He also felt guilty because he hardly spent time with his son, and often  wasted his time doing other unimportant things.

The father then realized that his son was in fact the most important thing in his life.
