Saith Me… Express and Share

I love this blog post…

I was considering Grad School…and then I saw this. HILARIOUS!  (POSTED ON DECEMBER 13, 2011 BY 

 

… especially since I should be graduating in May with my Master’s. After 20 years away from school, it is such a lift to realize the craziness is due to the goal and not the age. I learned a very long time ago that you have to laugh at weaknesses and stress, and this post (and comments) indicates that other women pursuing higher education ‘get it’. We do have weaknesses and we do have stress, but not because we are women, but because we are human. The fact that we can complain and laugh – in essence express and share our feelings is what makes us strong and resilient so that we can overcome our weaknesses and stress. I find it funny that the very people who criticize this parody are the very ones comparing women to men and finding women lacking. Why should women change to be like men? We should not, but rather we should embrace all that makes us women – including what some call ‘warts’. Our ability to laugh at ourselves is not what will hold us back, but will propel us to success.
