Less than a week after I brought my first baby home, after the post-birthing euphoria wore off, after all the relatives had cooed, cuddled, and given back the baby — I fell silently, like a deflating balloon, into a bout of despair.

I read an article the other day, given to me by my good friend, Mary, a thoughtful woman, a talented teacher, and a grounded human in that groooovy kind of way who is perfectly fit without working out and always seems to give the best greeting cards for the right occasion. She also happens to be an extraordinary mother. I'm constantly in awe.

If you're a parent, you've probably by now seen the cocky, controlling, pretty weird letter written by Kim Hall to all teenage girls her teenage boys may ever come into contact with online.

Some guys have gotten the crazy idea that being a good guy doesn’t pay off when it comes to women.  (I wonder where they got that idea?!)   Maybe it’s from years of failed attempts to get girls to like them by showing genuine interest and being a good guy.  Or maybe it’s because they are dropped regularly for narcissistic men, while they have been nothing but attentive, emotionally available, caring and present the entire time.

A post written by Kimberly Hall, the Director of Women’s ministry at All Saints PCA in Texas, has recently gone viral. It is everything I could ever dislike about a post wrapped in the bacon of blind hypocrisy.

Most images of Black women in the media are negative. Those images can do damage to a Black woman's self esteem if she does not have a favorable view of herself. If you do not agree with my contention about the media's negative portrayal of Black women, watch a few music videos. These negative images are broadcast throughout the globe.

Looking around at the working and school world, it seems to me there are an awful lot of rules about what one should and shouldn't wear, and some of them, honestly, are downright ridiculous.

Being alone does not mean that you have to be lonely. Too often too many people mistake the two. No one wants to be alone. Everyone wants to have someone that can be their lover, their partner, their best friend. Someone to cuddle up with at night. Someone to laugh with, and to feed that burning flame of sexual desire. But what happens if you don't have it? Where does this leave you and what are you going to do to achieve this? The Answer is nothing.

THE GOLDEN RULEAs a child, I was raised on the golden rule. I was taught to treat others as I wanted to be treated. Initially, I taught my children the same thing - afterall it was The Golden Rule.As a little girl, people didn't treat me very well, but I'd continue to  treat them the way I wanted to be treated because that's what my mom expected of me.That didn't turn out so well. I'd treat them well, they'd treat me worse, rinse and repeat.

 I thought over the words the old ladies were saying. Each one of them entered the room and told me the story of their life. Who would think that after giving birth, dealing with mother-in-laws from hell and husbands’ roaming hands on anything close, that some women have not had an orgasm?

Miley Cyrus was one of many poster girls for the innocence of childhood. She spent her young life nurturing an image that was identifiable to little girls and parent approved. Then like many of her predecessors there came a time when she needed to transition from girl to woman. For any of the rest of us that are not in the public eye this could be done slowly, getting to know ourselves, adjusting to the changes in our body and dealing with our feelings over time.

     It's been a busy week, which for me means little to no blogging time. Rose has been up every night, I had my nieces over, and I have been pretty busy with "Camp Awesome." I also made a new friend through the "blogosphere", who could be me if I lived in the Mid-West (don't take offense, New Friend, if it's not the Mid-West...every place that's west of Massachusetts but isn't California is the Mid-West on my mental map.) I even managed a girls' night out--well, actually, in, as we are all in the same financial sinkhole this week--with 2 of my 3 best friends.

For many of us, the second Sunday in May is a source of pain and suffering. Between the run up to Mother's Day and the 24-hour span that constitutes Mother's Day, many of us smile through the pain that we endure.

I’ve been at this blogger-activist thing less than a year, but I know I’ve said it more than once: I strongly believe we have to hold ourselves and our allies to the same standards we do our opponents. This means we can’t allow ourselves to place anyone on a pedestal where criticism can’t reach them, and we can't sweep bad behavior under the proverbial rug.

What kind of mask are you wearing that prevents others from seeing who you really are? You are so used to pretending to be someone who you feel others would like, that you have lost faith in who you are. Your true feelings are hidden behind smiles that you've pasted on your face. Tears are held because you feel that no one would understand the sadness that sometimes lay within. What if you were to take off the mask that you are so used to wearing? What if you were to find that others would accept you for who you are, not who you pretend to be?

I should start a second blog called "No, Ma'am, I Actually Don't Want Your Husband" because, from time to time, I am accused of that very thing.  I hear similar complaints from other single women.  Last week I was reminded, yet again, how sometimes just being single is enough to make a woman suspect.  Continue reading… http://eleanorewells.com/that-troublesome-single-lady/  EleanoreWhttp://EleanoreWells.com
