It’s time that I should teach you how to use one of the many effective weapons, the power of the two letter word ‘No’.
The times are changing and it is still very difficult to raise a girl in our country. It has nothing to do with who or how the girl herself is. It is about the way the society looks up to you. It’s my experience that the people around us know it first when the girl has grown up even before the parents realize. And thus this is important.
It is important that your No is firm and is sounding like a No conveying that you are not interested. The variation in a No can make the one on receiving end infer it to be a Yes (most times), a maybe or that you are confused, etc. But say it when you mean it. Remember that no one has the right to force you into something that you are not interested in.
A woman is born with a sense to identify if the person approaching her has any wrong intentions. We know it even when a guy purposely brushes up in the crowd. But this power is associated with our perception. Don’t be too trusting. Not everyone has your wellbeing in their mind.
We would be there to protect you, but soon there would be a time that you would start exploring the world around you on your own. And I would not want to stop you from it, instead I would prefer you to be strong and have a firm mind to identify what is correct and what is wrong.
I trust you and you too should trust yourself. Your judgments would improve and so would your insight. I am there to give you that push, but the flight will be yours.
