The past week has been very hectic. Was coordinating an intensive training program on the use of two open source software. The spare time spent on chores and also on reading work related documents has kept me very busy. Therefore, haven't had much time to read through wonderful posts by others. I will definitely love to read every single piece of work - there are so many lessons to learn in them. For now, I am trying to at least reply to comments on my posts and also make courtesy visits to commentators' posts - in other words doing very selective reading.
The assignment for this week looks easy enough on the outset. But because of what I am going through in my life, what led me to World Pulse, this has become a very emotional one. I had finally accepted in my heart that I need to get away from my relationship... have been seriously debating about it in my mind for the last year on and off. Finally did decide to move out last February and talked to THE one person I trusted could help me stabilize the breakup as much as possible. I do not wish to disrupt my children's life unduly. But sadly, the ally turned out to be not an ally. I ended up being made the selfish person who was not thinking about the kids ... I was made to believe to be the cruel person who was breaking up a family. I was made to believe, I could change his behavior by changing mine. Now I have truly understood nobody else can understand the abuse I have put up with because outwardly things have been so good - I guess I have been clever enough to show the world that I have a balanced life.
The cycle of doubt returned, nobody will understand me.
That's beside the point. I am not sure if I have addressed the assignment adequately. My emotions came into my writing and that's what I have written. Your feedback on the appropriateness of my rantings to this week's assignment will be very much appreciated. Here is the link to my assignment "Being a woman should not hurt"
I will refine and edit it before the deadline, based on your feedback. Thanks in advance
