back in touch

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on women in power: “I’m not a person who thinks the world would be entirely different if it was run by women. If you think that, you’ve forgotten what high school was like.” [via salon]

it has become painfully clear to me (again), how in many cases women can be far more cruel than our male counterparts.

i’ve spent most of my life surrounded by male playmates as a child, mostly male friends as an adolescent to primarily working and socializing among men as an adult.

interestingly enough, over the last few years in los angeles, i’ve attempted to reverse that pattern by surrounding myself with women believing that i needed more women in my life. to mixed results.

i touched on this subject before as i struggled to “overcome” this tendency and find some kind of balance.

while there are a handful of dear, dear women on whom i have come to rely for my sanity, perspective and general well-being unlike any other time in my life, i find myself harshly reminded why i have historically surrounded myself with men.

since then, i’ve come to realize that this is not a thing to be overcome, but embraced.

and i resolve to do so in the future.
