The alphabet of the day is E
E stands for Empowerment
The dictionary meaning of Empowerment is the process of becoming stronger and more confident especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights .
The general statements about women are like -Women are weak , Women are too sensitive , Women cry a lot , etc . And on the other side women also have to suffer many kind of challenges , assaults , inequality , domestic violence , etc. Hey The Women ! The need is to empower ourselves . The time demands Women Empowerment .
You know all of us have an alpha instinct within us . Do you know what’s that ? If you go by psychology and read about alpha or beta woman , you may get to the idea that alpha woman is the one who is dominant , has an aggressive behaviour or the one who is very much extrovert and dates many men . So alpha woman is the bossy type woman who just doesn’t bother to listen to others and lives life as per her wishes . This all is the typical bookish characteristics of an alpha woman . But In real life , if this alpha instinct is nurtured in the right way , it can aid to empower you without being too aggressive or bossy . Rather every woman must identify her alpha instinct , give it a boost , and be a strong woman . Allow the Lion to Roar .

7. It’s Ok to get away , It’s advisable to keep away from poison
In our daily lives , there are many turns where we women feel afraid of being Alone . In a not-so-good marital relationship, a husband may threaten his wife of leaving her and she starts begging again because she gets afraid of being Alone . Would I be able to survive alone ? Would I be able to take care of my child alone ? Would I be able to handle the social stigma ? Such thoughts start creeping in . But Women ! That time is to bring out your alpha woman from inside . When you see the situations not improving inspite of many efforts , if the things seem worsening, it’s ok to get away . Sometimes you may be more productive when you are alone . Getting away from the person who was slowly poisoning you , might come out as a blessing .
