November 11th 2008 was the day I died with my 37 year old husband who was accidently killed by a local block prior to a routine shoulder surgery. I was 15 weeks pregnant with our third child and left completely striped and naked of everything I once knew.

In that instant, I made a deicision to live and to love in a way that I never knew love before.
Melanie grew up with a narcissistic mother who demanded that Melanie conform to her concept of how a child should behave. To protect herself from her mother's anger, blame and disapproval, Melanie tried to be the "perfect child". She got excellent grades in school, was obedient at home, and never did anything to cause her parents to worry about her. She would listen for hours to her mother's complaints, becoming a mother to her mother by the time she was twelve years old.

Maybe if she were still alive, women might perceive themselves (and each other) differently today.
Last year, a corporate professional, let me call him Tom, came to me. He looked very tired and unhappy. “Sharmin, I am working long days, late nights, still my manager wants me to do more, have more impact, show more leadership…where is the time…why can’t he see my contribution already! With changes going around all the time it is so hard to get anything done on time. I even wanted to change this job, but in this economy it is so hard to get an interview even!” – Tom gave me a quite a vivid picture of his life. I felt compassionate for him.
