Most of us grow up learning the difference between right and wrong.
But what does this actually mean? What may be right in one part of our country or world may be frowned upon in another.
I had a conversation just the other day about womanizing.
The gentleman suggested that, so long as he’s honest about his many relationships, it shouldn’t matter how many woman he sleeps with.
“They knew the deal upfront,” he said.
Before I became a man and was trapped in a little-boy mentality, I shared that view. But as I grew older I began to realize that my decisions affected others. No longer could I justify that “me-first” philosophy.
Every female is someone’s mother, daughter or sister. As men, we must ask ourselves: “Would I want someone treating my mother, sister or daughter this way?” Whatever happened to “Treat people like you want to be treated?”
Nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes, but it’s time to be the change we want to see in the world.
So many women are disrespected, misused and abused, and we sit back and think this is normal.
Not only does the mistreatment of women affect the woman; it also affects the man. We lose a piece of ourselves when we mistreat our women. We must learn to love ourselves so that we can love our women.
Forgive, let go of the past and move into a new beginning. If you’re not happy with the person you see in the mirror, then change. It’s up to you.
Some feel that womanizing is OK. What do you think?
