Comments19/01/2017 #32 Ella de JongDear Sushmita do you know Anu Aggarwal? Today I saw a post on LinkedIn about her work in India. She wrote about: ... "Since the very start, my teens, this is what my dream was!– "Better people's lives". A trained social worker, MSW I saw "sexual repression" and bursting population of india, a huge hurdle in this. So glamorous star, in the early 90s, i openly talked about sex even if it hurt me public image then, and accepted to endorse and be the Brand Ambassador of a condom. ..." You two seem to fight a good fight!19/01/2017 #29 Julie HickmanI have no answers to the utter evil of rape and the general population being accepting of the status quo. Women are meant to be cherished and are an undeniable force for the good of mankind.
One could just imagine if every son, brother, father, or loving husband made it a mission to eliminate violence against women. These same men could be the best advocates and greatest allies in the struggle to keep their mothers, sisters, daughters and wives safe on earth. Don't be silent. Thank you @Sushmita Thakare Jain for your advocacy and thank you @Donna-Luisa Eversley for including me in the discussion.19/01/2017 #22 Sushmita Thakare Jain#7 @Donna-Luisa Eversley thank you for sharing the post, my dear! I am flattered by the response never knew random words unedited but from the heart can be effective. Thank you for motivating me in expressing myself and my feelings. I feel the same way each time a woman or a girl is victmized by these beasts. Our words cannot do justice to them but it can help in raising voices so that this inhuman act doesn't happen again not here but anywhere in the world.19/01/2017 #21 Sushmita Thakare Jain#6 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit will definitely check the video out. I so connect with you on banning, remember even the Nirbhaya case episode was banned by Indian Broadcasting commission and made to reshoot cutting most parts of it.
But, that doesn't change the truth. Does it?19/01/2017 #16 David B. GrinbergThanks for opening up about this important issue Sushmita. I would just say that any man who intentionally disrespects women is really no man at all. And any man who hurts women -- physically and/or emotionally -- is a junkyard dog. There's never a legitimate reason to abuse women or girls -- period!19/01/2017 #15 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman@Sushmita Thakare Jain, I support your voice and I am glad you are bringing awareness to this horrible problem. I agree with Aurorasa it is the mindset that needs to be changed; and I agree with Dean that in order for any movement to succeed, it must be strong and persistent. I read something about this happening in India a while ago and found it to be extremely disturbing. My heart goes out to women anywhere in the world that are subjected to abuse and rape. Thank you, @Donna-Luisa Eversley for tagging me.19/01/2017 #14 Dean OwenWe learn from history that any movement, whether it is women's rights, suffrage, or whatever, can't be fleeting if it is to succeed. It must be strong and very persistent. I see passion and spirit within you @Sushmita Thakare Jain View moreWe learn from history that any movement, whether it is women's rights, suffrage, or whatever, can't be fleeting if it is to succeed.

You have a gift and you have a voice. Loved the article. Close19/01/2017 #13 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher@Sushmita Thakare Jain this was so honestly powerful I am feeling rage that I can't put into words. NO, it's not the woman's fault. What is wrong with Indian Culture to allow this? Is this widespread throughout India? These men are animals who have been raised to believe a woman IS THEIR OBJECT to do with, whatever they please. This is wrong and criminal. I can't imagine the fear so many Indian women have. They are repressing women by use of force, humiliation, sexual assault and more! This must end. I'm glad you wrote this, I'm sorry this happens (that feels so shallow) just to say I'm sorry. These men need to be in jail, new laws enacted to protect women. It's time for repression to end. No girls and women, IT"S NOT YOUR FAULT!!!!!!!!!!!!
- 18/01/2017Engage your brain with NLP questions and you will easily get into a wonderful flow that creates absolutely no resistance and actually feel easy, true and fun. How does it work? Instead of using regular affirmation like I am pretty, I am smart, I have all the answers, I am becoming rich quickly etc, put those into questions that start with a WHY. Why am I pretty? Why am I smart?, Why do I have all the answers?, Why am I becoming rich quickly?, Why am I allowing myself the opportunity to succeed?, Why are things coming easily to me?, Why do people love me? Why am I so cool? And you are on a roll just keep adding whatever feel natural and positive to you. Add anything you want at this moment and put it into a WHY question – this feel so good immediately because for one it strongly engages your brain which is important for heavily analytical people, and it does so in a positive manner, opening up possibilities and at the same time triggering absolutely nothing, which allows you to sustain these wonderful feelings indefinitely. Try it. Start asking yourself questions and watch your subconscious deliver answers when you least expect it. It’s such a great way to enter the state of flow which is the most creative space you can be in no matter what you job or career or business is.

Comments17/01/2017 #13 Todd JonesJulie, I cope with the occasional bout of the blues by trying to recognize and remember that nine times out of ten, it's not so much what is going on out in the world, but what's going on in my brain. My perceptions. I tell myself repeatedly, "This too shall pass."
Thankfully, I have discovered that my brain is somewhat like an etch-a-sketch, and that a good nights sleep works wonders. Very often, it seems that the act of sitting up in the morning shakes the screen of my mind if not clean, at least considerably less vivid. I suppose this is one of the rewards of having been blessed with a limited intellect :)
Most of all, I try really hard not to take myself nor my perceived problems too seriously.17/01/2017 #12 Lisa 🐝 GallagherWow @Julie Sullivan, I feel like I was meant to read this tonight. I had a similar experience last night on Facebook. I went through my timeline and saw just a few things, then I broke down crying hysterically too. I called my daughter and told her I was going to deactivate my FB page because I could not take the toxicity on there anymore and wanted to warn her so she wouldn't wonder why she couldn't find me on there. I rarely allow myself to break down and cry in front of my kids but I did last night. She agreed it was the best thing to do and said she may do the same soon. After I deactivated my page I felt a sense of relief. I don't miss it. My daughter was so cute, she even sent me a positive quote and posted it on pinterest for me. After the rain, we can see rainbows and the sunshine. Thanks for sharing this!17/01/2017 #11 Julie SullivanSo I guess maybe a bit of backstory: I spent most of my younger years pretty much the opposite of positive. I've dealt with depression, anxiety and anger for a lot of my life: conscious re-framing is what I've trained myself to do. It's pretty
much changed my world for the better. So much of your story and of the world is
How you choose to tell it, and the way you choose to interpret that of others. But it's also totally a process. I really appreciate all the feedback!17/01/2017 #10 Max🐝 J. CarterThank you @David B. Grinberg I do have a few thoughts on it.
They have done studies that show that people who have a form of spirituality in their life deal with better than those who do not.
They tend to outperform at work around those who do not have a form of spirituality in their life.
In my study and experience as a Shaman we are not physical beings in need of a spiritual life, we are spiritual beings in learning how to be human. Science has been catching up and some even say that when you start in physics you become an atheist and after while you realize God does exist.
Nikola Tesla said some of his ideas came from entities he was in contact with.
Einstein even noted the importance of spirituality.
Personally I find the song THE LIGHT by Disturbed does it for me these days..
I am the Rock 'N' Roll Shaman and music is my main form of spiritual comfort as I connect soul to soul with the artists realizing that if every word is heard as an open prayer than every word we sing is as worship.
That said I also respect any form of spiritually some one chooses for themselves as long as they are not asked to harm animals or humans in their spiritual practices.
To sum up if you don't have a form of spirituality in life you do not deal with life as well as those who do and that is the result of several studies not my opinion.17/01/2017 #9 Robin BartonThank you for the openness. I've been there many times so I totally understand, especially when we still have to be an adult! I find that being in nature helps me breathe, helps me think, and helps me heal. I also love to collect quotes and write them down in a small notebook. I use different colored pens and markers to make it creative. I doodle. I'll use stickers. Whatever catches my imagination. Creativity is calming, even snippets of it. When I need a pick me up, I pull the latest version of my notebook and read quotes. Just a few things I do. :)17/01/2017 #8 Aleta Curry#4 I think I know what you're saying here Phil, and I would say something somewhat similar. I don't think it's so much an excess of positivism as it is looking at the world in completely the wrong way. Somehow our belief systems: our national myths, our religions, the ethics we were taught etc. all conspire to have us believe that if we do right, Life will be fine. Rather, I think we should say that Life does what it does, you have to be ready to deal with it.17/01/2017 #6 Aleta CurryAmong many fun things at beBee is the fact that we're always 'meeting' new people and, via them, discovering new ways to stretch our brains: reinforce what we knew to be right, learn something we didn't know, and occasionally change our minds about something.
Julie, your post reminds me of how lucky I am. I can say this without feeling that I'm bragging because I had nothing to do with it; it's the result of the genetic lottery, and the luck of having my upbringing, by which I mean that a) I'm inherently an optimist, and b) as much as I might sometimes have castigated my parents for their mistakes in childrearing, I should bless them for having given me the basic tools to deal with what Life throws at me, and the ability to acquire tools I need and don't yet have.
Interestingly, being a pollyanna doesn't mean that I never get down; when I crash I can crash hard. I don't tend to stay down for very long, however. I'm not a mental health professional so I can't definitively tell you why I'm the way I am (beyond what I've already suggested) but here are some of the things I do when overwhelmed:
a) a small task - not the time to paint the house, but something little like sweeping the floor or washing the dishes b) go outside (or gaze out the window if the weather is inclement) it's amazing how good this is for me c) sing aloud - change songs if I find myself singing something depressing d) stop what I'm doing and distract myself completely if it's really bad, like put on a comedy DVD or something.17/01/2017 #4 Phil FriedmanJulie, I am personally wont to point out that cynicism is often the last refuge of an idealist. Sometimes an excess of positivism reduces one's ability to bend with the bad and the ugly in the world, and instead increases the chances that one will break. In other words, do not expect that love and a positive attitude will conquer all, and you might not be shattered when they do not. Nice post. A lot of common sense here. And I think a genuinely uplifting message. Cheers!17/01/2017 #3 David B. GrinbergThanks for your profound and poignant post, Julie. I think many people turn to faith, religion and/or spirituality during very troubling times. Personally, I've always found the Psalms to be deeply comforting. Please note I'm a secular, albeit spiritual, person.

Comments13/01/2017 #1 Harvey LloydI agree here to a point. I find that many seem to need to excuse themselves for existing, while the other extreme is someone speaking their mind regardless of being relevant. I don't care for either extreme.
I do think that sorry has become one of those words we use describe our own discomfort with the topic at hand. But sorry also opens up discussion about the "elephant", is that what you wanted? If i merely require discussion about the elephant then introduce it as a discussion topic. Instead of sorry i use the word uncomfortable as a way to open discussions.
If you need the team to eat the elephant one bite at the time and time constraints exist........Then we must be direct, factual and lay out an eating plan. The word sorry will derail this effort by opening up discussions. In leading you get to decide when discussion is appropriate and when it is not. Choose wisely, but choose.
I also think the apologetic style of leadership was born from a education and political system where we are gun shy to be but so direct, as we might offend someone. Also the number of folks waiting to be offended has grown.

It's a small island in a sea of mess, but I do take some solace in that, at least.10/01/2017 #8 Brian McKenzieThe Soviets / Russians have always been better at ' hacking' America, than we have been at 'hacking' them. They never turned their Cold War machine off, we did. But The Russian Hack of the 'Election' is pure pandering bullshit brought on by low info widgets and the media that feeds them. For example - in Wisconin, one of the states that was involved in an Official recount & 'The Hacking', the voting machines are not connected to the internet. The "news", however has conveniently avoided that voting machines from 2006 & forward an outsourced company Owned by Soros and his socual justice mouth piece " Media Matters". The Soros /SOE / Sctyl machines/software are present in 26 states with 900 jurisdictions. Couple that with how Obamacare enrollment was used as a vehicle to enroll illegal immigrants onto public dole benefits and endow voting privileges to them as 'documented residents' and you are looking in the wrong direction for gerrymandering and vote 'fixing'. The " Russian Hack " meme is pure rope a dope blather, without substance, without proof. Along the same lines that the US did with MH-17. Pure alarmist bullshit, without again any credibility.10/01/2017 #7 Gerald HechtThis is really an excellent synopsis of the current situation...

That said, Max, you can’t call yourself a Shaman and not expect some people to take issue with the label.

And while they have a stated mission, as a mom of a now 20 year old daughter, I know all too well how media plays to girls in such a way that causes them to feel like they are not pretty enough, skinny enough and so on. From what I can understand, the goal of the graphic designer redoing the cover and topics was one to start a healthy discussion about what we should be telling girls. And I for one, am all for that! Yes - of course, someone else can come up with a new magazine - but the side by side comparison was provoking to say the least.08/01/2017 #6 Mike RanaPer the about page: "Founded in 1994, Girls' Life is the premier magazine for girls ages 10-16 focusing on fun stuff like fashion, beauty and celebs along with real information and advice on friends, family, school, tough stuff and more.

The image on the left does comport to the mission of the magazine, whether it's right/wrong.

Unfortunately, sex-based discrimination is still an ugly reality of life for too many women in the workplace and every place -- including the high tech sector and Silicon Valley.
