This is the end

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end

Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
Ill never look into your eyes...again

Can you picture what will be
So limitless and free
Desperately in need...of some...strangers hand
In a...desperate land

Lost in a roman...wilderness of pain
And all the children are insane
All the children are insane
Waiting for the summer rain, yeah

Theres danger on the edge of town
Ride the kings highway, baby
Weird scenes inside the gold mine
Ride the highway west, baby

Ride the snake, ride the snake
To the lake, the ancient lake, baby
The snake is long, seven miles
Ride the snake...he's old, and his skin is cold

The west is the best
The west is the best
Get here, and well do the rest

The blue bus is callin us
The blue bus is callin us
Driver, where you taken us

The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on
He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall
He went into the room where his sister lived, and...then he
Paid a visit to his brother, and then he
He walked on down the hall, and
And he came to a door...and he looked inside
Father, yes son, I want to kill you
Mother...i want to...fuck you

Cmon baby, take a chance with us
Cmon baby, take a chance with us
Cmon baby, take a chance with us
And meet me at the back of the blue bus
Doin a blue rock
On a blue bus
Doin a blue rock
Cmon, yeah

Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end

It hurts to set you free
But youll never follow me
The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die

This is the end

The obsolete sex roles

If divorce has increased by one thousand percent, don't blame the women's movement. Blame the obsolete sex roles on which our marriages were based. Betty Friedan: speech, New York City, January 20, 1974.

I'm not against marriage

Many people might think I'm against marriage, then let me clarify that this is not so.

That is just a misunderstanding, I am in favor of having a rich life beyond the one we share with our partners.

Many women build their lives around a relationship and when it ends, their lives are absolutely empty. I AM AGAINST THAT.

It is important to love yourself, have a strong self-esteem, not assessed according to the scale of the boyfriend, husband or potential love, but to know, accept and love yourself.

That's not free, it requires an introspective work, to reflect, to change the critique look to ourselves and turn it to the wonderful things in each one of us.

What if I find nothing great inside me? Ah, then it's time to work strengthening all of the aspects that I'm interested in emphasize: being generous, taking initiative, starting new activities, pursueing individual forgotten dreams, and - why not? - also worry about the most banal: change hair look, nail polish, going to the gym, in short, spoil yourself a little.
Romantic relationships are a part of the life of a woman and NOT THE FOCUS of it.

Many may say that I'm exaggerating, but according to my experience, women have a genetic predisposition to be culpable and cling to romantic love as if there's nothing more important in life, which often is reinforced by the fear that the society will tag them as "lonely women" (divorced, spinster, and other similar epithets).

All that is harmful to personal development and eventually leads to a crisis of huge proportions triggered by any major event like the arrival of bithday number forty or a divorce or the kids leaving home (emply nest), and so on.

Moreover, if you ask me if I am concerned about the issue of being married or not, I honestly answer that I do not care. Not because I am against marriage and I swear that I'll never ever marry. But because marriage is not the main issue in my life, like having a good health, an interesting professional career or a loving and caring family.

I hope that everything is clear. Now is the time to work on ourselves!
