Parisha Taylor has said of women that in our quest for being understood and approved, we have denied the essence, power, and joy of who we really are. All relationships have suffered, because we suffered ourselves as victims and lesser beings. The only relationship that we have to control is the one with our Self. Unless we can establish value and respect for and of ourselves, we will never experience meaningful relationships with others. And if women could come together in harmony, and leave the bickering and pettiness behind, the world would be healed.
