A good woman has no identity of her own; she is a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a wife. She is happy to exist only in these relations because what more could she possibly want?
Every man is a good man, he may be a violent unemployed penniless drunkard, but he is a good man because he is a man.
Fate may have created problems for him, but all he needs is a good woman to help him overcome the misfortune of his fate; for that is her destiny and that is her only purpose — to make his life better.
A good woman has no identity of her own; she is a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a wife. She is happy to exist only in these relations because what more could she possibly want? It is the fulfilment of her existence to serve others.
A good woman is happy making others happy. She has no dreams of her own beyond fulfilling the dreams of others in her life. She is self-sacrificing, she never has an opinion of her own. Likewise, she is happy to be led by those who know better.
She can live with hunger and pain; nay, she revels in pain, for pain is her saviour. It will make her pure and good. She never complains. She takes responsibility for everything that goes wrong.
After all, if it was not written in her fate to see unhappiness, why would her family members be unhappy?
She is a martyr. She will happily face every sorrow if it will make others happy. Her family’s ‘good name’ rests in her hands—in her body, to be precise.
She is the upholder of all religious practices and cultural values and yet as the weaker sex, she can do all this only by following the instructions laid down for her by the men in her life.
She must be the embodiment of every virtue and if she isn’t then she must learn through the pain and suffering that is in her fate.
She is a good woman.
She wants nothing for herself.
She is a good woman, but she is more than a woman.
She is a goddess!
But a goddess is never human! So how can a woman be a good woman?

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then.
