Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Ways To Appreciate Women Around You
04 Oct 2019INSPIRATIONBY SweetEscape

Women, just like any of their gender counterparts, are just as human. With that said, it goes along with the fact that women also have their ups and downs. There is no perfect human being out there, and sometimes society would stereotype women under inferior categories, which we would like to shed some light on.

Since the month of October is breast cancer awareness month, SweetEscape would like to encourage you to show some love to the women in your lives. Whether you are a female or a male, you're bound to be surrounded by females throughout your lifetime. They could be your mom, grandmother, best friend, spouse or sister - and you probably wonder to yourself sometime... "How can I make them feel appreciated?". Don't fret! We've put together a list of great ways that are guaranteed to work greatly with the women around you below.

1. Understand that women are just as human, with their ups and downs.

To be understood takes the will to understand others, too. SweetEscape is here to tell you that women are far from superhuman beings, and are just as human as any other. Society would often put down the position of women due to their many differences when compared to their gender counterpart. Truth be told, nobody is perfect, as cliché as that may sound. Men might be more logical compared to women, and perhaps their physical strength are among some of the major differences. Nevertheless, women come with their own set of ups and downs. The way to look at it is; despite nobody (male nor female) having the whole package, why not make amends and understand that both genders have great qualities to offer?

2. Acknowledge her achievements.

Especially in the modern day society, women are striving to maintain that level of equality within society. Meaning, women are human beings with great potential in which were buried back in the earlier days of time until quite recently. Previously, society's expectations towards women were along the lines of housewife duties, childbearing and caring for their spouse. As a matter of fact, it was uncommon for women to pursue education, a high-paying job or even a secure social standing within her own community. Since women have come along way beyond those times, we say it's time to start acknowledging the women around you who have achieved great things in their lives. Regardless of whether you are a male or female yourself, it'll make the world a better place once you start applying this unto your lives.

3. Accept that women have as much rights as males do.

We assume that most of our readers weren't around during the days when women weren't given much of a choice as to what they can and cannot do in the society. Luckily for those of you from this era, you are now living in a world where women are slowly but surely given just as much rights (if not entirely equal) as the men have. More and more women of the modern day society are striving and working hard in order to earn a respectable place in society. Hence, we as a people, need to learn to accept that women are also entitled to their rights to equality and to survive. Women no longer have to live in the shadow of their gender counterpart - so, kudos to women for that!

4. Random acts of kindness.

Since (most) women are known to be more of the feel-y gender of the human species, they tend to appreciate the little things more than the bigger. For instance, have you ever noticed the way your mom or grandmother would react when you pay them a surprise visit bringing only yourself and some finger foods to share? Or perhaps, your mom really wanted to go to that broadway show that she used to go to when she was younger... but your dad or her friends can't seem to go with her. How do you think she would react if you stepped in and offered to be her company for the show? That's what you call" random acts of kindness, that will surely touch the hearts of the women around you!

5. Vocalize your appreciation for the things she does.

If you aren't already aware of the "actions speak louder than words" saying, we're here to tell you that there is some truth to that.. to some extent. It just so happens that for women, words of appreciation are actually needed for them to be motivated and to really feel appreciated. Although we do agree that you have to practice what you preach, for (most) women, you can say that the opposite works better. If you haven't realized it already, women are "feelers" and would be glad to be occasionally thanked and complimented verbally for the things they do for you. Perhaps your wife is a career woman who works the 9-to-5 regime, but still squeezes in that very little spare time to cook you some delicious breakfast and dinner. You might think it's something ordinary, when in fact, that is part of their effort for you! Women don't just do that for anybody. So, if she does this for you... consider yourself lucky!

6. Say what you mean, mean what you say.

For the most part, a relatively huge part of society perceives women as being weak or not strong enough to face the truth. When in reality, you'll be surprised to know that women are actually a lot stronger than you may think. Since women are naturally full of emotions and feelings from the start, they have been trained to deal with several complex realities throughout their lifetimes. If, in the case that a woman you know seems to get easily agitated or offended... don't get caught off guard, it's all just temporary! It might take a bit longer for things to make sense for women, as their feelings would be their initial reaction. But afterwards, after they think things through, we guarantee you that they will understand and appreciate your honesty and willingness to be open with them rather than sugar coating everything instead.
