Unless you've been living under a rock, then you're probably all too aware that there's a new Star Wars movie out right now.
And just in case you're a Star Wars fanatic and have yet to see the movie, no I will not be giving any spoilers in this, so feel free to keep reading.
Has it ever occurred to you that Star Wars can be a lot like dating?
I don't know about you, but I'm a sucker for any movie that has anything to do with justice. Good vs. Evil and good prevailing gets my blood pumping.
I love when injustice gets it's ass kicked. And what's not to love about Star Wars, good combatting evil and hey doing a little ass kicking along the way?
Let me talk to you about the injustice in dating. That there's a battle of good and evil amongst men and women.
From women, men are the evil forces that must be conquered. From men, women are also the evil forces, that need to be conquered.
No. STOP IT.
No one needs to be conquered here.
There's no good vs. evil in regards to the sexes. Your opinions yes may present that scenario in your head, however that's not what's going on here.
While gender roles continue to shape and transform, at the end of the day, the opposite sex is never your enemy.
Your false belief systems are.
Here's a clue: Instead of looking at the opposite sex as someone out to get you or someone to be conquered, transition into the thought that the opposite sex may be the very thing you need.
The opposite sex may help pull you out of your loneliness and your head for that matter.
Put down your saber and get out and meet the opposite sex as your ally.
