It’s time for a change surely?

I turned on the radio this morning and there was song on by the band Busted 🎸

I turned it up to give me good energy and boost the kids just before they went to school.


And then I listened to the lyrics 🤮

It’s about a teenage male who has a crush on his teacher.


There are references to her bending over and him spying on her in her home when she is alone.


“Oh f&&£ off” I say to the radio out loud and feel irritated at the female presenter for playing it.


The thing is I’m not even mildly irritated I feel sad and cross in equal measure.


This kid in the song is being disrespectful at best and predatory at worse.


And it’s one of the reasons I am raising my boys to be acutely aware of what it means to be a woman and how they can be allies as they grow into young men.


Let’s put it this way they started their menstrual education at 2 yrs of age.


I refuse to hide myself away in my own home in order to elevate others’ needs at all costs all the time.


So if you hear something today that cuts deeper than it “should”.

Please don’t shrug it off.

Express your discomfort. Acknowledge how you feel.

Your soul will love that.


Ensure that you validate yourself today.

You can thank me later.


And if you need some help with a single issue in your life that is leaving you feeling stuck then drop in for a chat



Until them take the greatest of care,


Much love,


Rachel
