I personally value women not because I am a woman myself, but because without women, the world is empty. Empty in the sense that it seems barren with the lack of a woman’s presence; no beauty and most of all, no nurturing happens.
Every now and then, my heart swells at the effort of other women who empowers their worth amidst all the challenges they encounter in their own world. I feel real proud at the achievements of women who made a difference not just to themselves but to the whole world as well — making a stand that a woman is equally worthy.
This quote struck me most about a woman’s worth:
The Hebrew Talmud says: “Be very careful if you make a woman cry because God counts her tears. Every tear a woman shed is equivalent of a man’s sacrifices in life. The woman came from a man’s rib — not on his feet to be stepped on; not on his head to be superior, but on his side to be equal; under his arms to be protected and near his heart to be loved.”
I don’t know about you but everytime I read this quote, it makes me happy. It perfectly describes a woman’s worth with simple words but striking to the depth. It constantly reminds us all, not just the women for its worth, but also men to value a woman’s worth.
This is not a campaign, but rather a simple reminder to all of us who might seem to forget what truly is a woman’s worth.
