, you are being absolutely fabulous.
Now time for you to wear that thinking cap again!
Read that answer of yours " a girl becomes a woman , when she stops believing in fairy-tales", so what exactly is wrong with these fairy-tales and do you think a woman can ever stops believing in it?
In fairy-tales women are generally portrayed as weak who can't seem to do anything without the help of a man. Her main goal is to find her true love and never about her self improvement. She is the forever sacrificing type. In fairy-tales everything is black and white when in reality everything is more grey shaded. There's no connection to real world in the stories. You can not gain any knowledge of handling serious matters in life when everything is so perfect and beautiful.
I don't think some women can ever stop believing in fairy-tales. Maybe it gives them hope even if it's a false one.
What inspires you every day?
My daughter who is a bundle of joy (and a pain in the rear end at times) and my co-workers who work with special needs children. Their non-stop dedication for these children is amazing. So many of them put their heart and soul into their work not only to get paid but actually doing something meaningsful.
Do you think silence is really powerful?
Silence is indeed very powerful. We talking and hearing humans relies on communication and verbal exchange. We want to be heard and get reaction on what we say. Being met with complet silence put us in a whole new situation.
Sometimes a very aggrivated situation can be solved by silence. Then it becomes the most powerful weapon in the world.
Some say a mother's love is self-less, you agree?
Yes I agree because she puts everything before her needs not because she's forced to but because her love for her child makes her do it. The minute a woman becomes a mother her focus changes completely.
What's you fav book and why?
Although I read a lot of books but I honestly don't have any favourite. Except there's a comic strip I like very much which was turned into a book. My sister gave me it to me. The character is named Nemi and is written by the Norwegian cartoonist Lise Myhre. From time to time I take out the book to get a good laugh.
Batman!!! (Na na na na na! If you've seen the 1960's version of Batman then you will know what "na na na" stands for)
Give three solid facts a female should always remember?
Gender equality doesn't mean women should start behaving like men. Gender equality means to be a women yet get equal rights.
Respect other women. Don't call them s**t or bit**. By pulling down other women you are pulling down your own gender.
Love yourself for who you are and don't strive for perfection.
Love/trust/loyalty/respect- rate them for their importance in a relationship?
Trust is foundation for any relationship. If you don't have trust then you have nothing.
Respect not only for your partner but also for yourself. Mutual respect gives balance in relationship.
Love is cherry on top which gives meaning to a relationship.
Loyalty means you are comitted to the person you're involved for a long time.
Why do you think religion is so powerful in this world?
Religion has become powerful in the wrong way. Instead of giving peace, strength and support to each and every individual it has become a dangerous political weapon which harms everything in it's way.
What do you aspire as a woman ?
I aspire to inspire. I want to use my bad experience, turn it into something positive and help others.
Name a talent that you would love to acquire?
Skating. I tried a few times in my childhood but never got hang of it.
Fav mid-night snack?
Ice-cream preferably chocolate.
5 things you want to do with your daughter?
Watch live footboll (soccer) match in a stadium.
Watch an amazing Broadway show.
Do volunteering for some charity.
Go to an amusement park and sit on every ride and scream our heads off.
How do you handle emotions of anger or hate?
I don't handle them very well honestly speaking. I tend to lash out my anger quite vocally and then lock myself up in a room. I need solitude for calming myself down or there's a risk for me becoming violent.
Hate is so much harder to handle as it runs deeper and is not a passing emotion like anger.
