You Be The Judge?

Next to deceit, judging others is possibly the worst of all human flaws.  Everyone is a judge, yes, including me.  What if we step outside of ourselves for a moment and analyze what makes us do so?  Some people judge others as a reflection of their own shortcomings to further create a smokescreen for the same thing they are judging others about.  There is a saying when you point a finger at someone, three fingers point back at you.  If we truly look deep within ourselves, we don’t only see our strong traits but our weaknesses as well.  When we do so, we would know that the very thing we judge others about is the weaknesses we somehow cannot change within us. In Matthew 7:1-6, Jesus warns about judging others.  He wants us to change what needs to be changed before we look at what they need to change.  To understand our own weaknesses, strengthen them, and then that strength will manifest itself in our actions which will then be a testimony to others which they can learn from.  This is the “plank” that Jesus talks about.  The very thing we judge another with what is impaled inside us and needs to be removed.  Have you ever met anyone who WANTS to be told what to do?  Isn’t it the saying that “actions speak louder than words?”    So how...

“Saying “YES” to YOU – May Mean Saying “NO” to Someone Else”

The title of this post is probably the hardest thing I’ll ever have to learn, given who I am.  My inner drive is to be a helper.  I can’t help it. I was born with that “I AM” in my soul. Believe me, I’m still working on this on a daily basis.  If this is somewhat of a repeat of a former post, it’s because I have to keep working on it and – I bet a few Here Women Talk readers need help in this area too. One thing I sense from the group on the site is...

Dating Mommies and Daddies When You Have No Children

Dating Mechanic, In the past I have always had a firm rule of not dating men with baby mammas because it carries way too much drama that I just don’t want to deal with but recently I began dating a man who has a six year old. I’m having second thoughts about creating a relationship with him. The mom seems to be fine with the fact that I am dating her ex and wants us to “be friends”. She’s never asked me out for coffee or anything but it makes me feel uncomfortable to think of her in that...

How Mom Can Help Make Father Daughter Relationships a Priority

There are so many women who have not had the opportunity to grow up with their father. Being one of those women I was delighted to share my thoughts at Norfolk State University yesterday as a panelist for their discussion titled, “My Daughter and Her Dad: Strategies to facilitate a relationship between daughters and fathers when the parent’s relationship have dissolved” As a single parent, women may feel pressured by the father’s absence to play the role of both mom and dad but a father’s love can never be substituted. No matter how hard a woman tries to compensate...
