( ENSPIRE MIND, BODY, SOUL) Why Women Should be More Emotionally Intelligent
It’s difficult being a woman especially a single woman who wasn’t born with a gold spoon in her mouth. We trim and chisel until our fingers become bones. Men now dangle the apple in our faces and it’s hard to resist the temptation. We know the consequences yet still we allow feelings to make the decisions.
Our emotions cause us to give up so much of ourselves physically, spiritually and mentally. Every time a relationship ends, we lose a bit of ourselves. What doesn’t kill us doesn’t always make us stronger. Sometimes, it makes us crazy…
Women, it doesn’t have to be this way. We can control 50 percent more of what happens to us especially when it comes to relationships. It’s time we give our hearts a break and go forward with our minds. Managing your emotions will change your life.
