What Oprah says about Men

This is very true…!
Rasanya semua pengen gw BOLD!

bau2 feminist di dalam tulisan ini.
Tapi mari kita menyaring kata-kata di bawah ini, bukan membenci pria tetapi untuk menghargai diri sendiri dan menghargai mereka sebagai partner in life. Karena mereka adalah ciptaan Tuhan yang sama indahnya dengan wanita. Tentu saja dengan panggilan yang khusus pula.

Seperti pria punya kelemahan, wanita memiliki ‘kelemahannya’ sendiri.. tetapi:
A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you.
So.. respect dan cherish your life before you make a decision to share it with other man.

Best Wishes,

Every woman has her own legacy. Nothing she could do to change it…
But she can decide how to live her legacy, and then pass on her legacy to bless the world… through the next generation of hers.”


If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away. If he doesn’t want you, nothing can make him stay.
Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior.
Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.
Stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that’s not meant to be.

Slower is better. Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy.
If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can’t “be friends”. A friend wouldn’t mistreat a friend.
Don’t settle. If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is.
Don’t stay because you think “it will get better.” You’ll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better.
The only person you can control in a relationship is you.
Avoid men who’ve got a bunch of children by a bunch of different women. He didn’t marry them when he got them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently?

Always have your own set of friends separate from his.
Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you. If something bothers you, speak up.
Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later.
You cannot change a man’s behavior. Change comes from within.

Don’t EVER make him feel he is more important than you are… even if he has more education or in a better job. Do not make him into a quasi-god. He is a man, nothing more nothing less.
Never let a man define who you are.
Never borrow someone else’s man. If he cheated with you, he’ll cheat on you.
A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you.
All men are NOT dogs.
You should not be the one doing all the bending…compromise is two way street.
You need time to heal between relationships. ..there is nothing cute about baggage… deal with your issues before pursuing a new relationship.
You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you… a relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals. Look for someone complimentary, not supplementary.

Dating is fun…even if he doesn’t turn out to be Mr. Right. So don’t do anything further than a friendship fast.
Make him miss you sometimes… when a man always know where you are, and you’re always readily available to him – he takes it for granted.
Never move into his mother’s house. Never co-sign for a man. Don’t fully commit to a man who doesn’t give you everything that you need.
Keep him in your radar but get to know others.

Share this with other women and men (just so they know)… You’ll make someone smile, another rethink her choices, and another woman prepare.
They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them and an entire lifetime to forget them.
