I firmly believe that it is women who will save the world and that this will occur more readily as we believe in ourselves and our abilities and take steps to actualize our beliefs into action.
I remember hearing women complaining about men creating personal development groups for men. The complaining surprised me, as I thought it was a great idea for men to focus on their personal growth and development, and I thought that women could do it, too.
My philosophy was and is that when we as women focus on meeting our own needs, on empowering ourselves, we are less dependent on looking outside of ourselves for others to do these things for us. When we find ways to recognize and meet our basic needs, our relationships are comprised of two healthy people rather than one or two parts seeking to make a whole.
