What do you mean by women empowerment? It does not mean creating a space for yourself in everybody’s heart that a women is capable of for that matter respected for. Women have far more tolerance power than men. They never say no and perform their daily duties without cribbing & getting tired and all their sacrifices just get unnoticed and in vain that’s the pain every women goes through daily. She faces more challenging life, situations, adjustments, compromises & health issues. Still she lives more, breathes more, makes her family smile and grow with each passing day. A woman lives 6 years more longer than a man. They die more of chronic diseases, heart diseases, cancer, depression, anxiety, stress, arthritis, loneliness, osteoporosis, reproductive health issues or ovarian cancers. There is a need to spread awareness & for right to every women to live for herself and get total health check-ups done so that symptoms of ill-health and various dangerous complications going on internally & externally which drain the mind, body & soul are gauged as early as possible. She also has equal rights to fight & live for her own empowerment & not curb her desires and freedom at any cost.
Women also get diabetes if they are over weight. They should watch what they eat as diabetes is a silent killer. A woman has to be real strong to bear it all and should treat herself well and also know how to enjoy & indulge limitfully & controlfully. She crosses rocks & hurdles and never tires, only struggles. She should rise higher with her dreams & ambitions been seen in the positive light and no negative shadows surround her and make her uneasy and choke her breathing and that’s how she falls trap to diseases when she suppresses the deepest sorrow & grief and contains within her heart, holds all the negative energies bestowing & showering happiness to other. So a woman should be spiritually active, positive, independent & should know her body & mind with no panic but peace inside her residing every second.
