We all have plenty of time.

Time does not discriminate. The rich and poor, the young and the old, all have twenty-four hours in a day and the same number of days in each year.

Time, sometimes, feels burdensome. And at other times, it’s a blessing of which we can’t get enough. How we use the time we have is an indication of our life and character.

Socialization tells women they should spend their time caring, so they can prove their worth and the depth of their love. Their femininity is evaluated by how much time they spend caring for others.

Socialization tells men they should spend their time proving their masculinity with money, material things and sex. The more of these three things a man has, the more he is admired.

Socialization has robbed too much of your time and made you, and the man you love, intimate strangers. Respect the times you are strong and the times he is gentle and uncertain, so that when you’re together, it will be a time you both treasure.
