Charlize Theron Once Said….

Charlize Theron was born August 7 August 1975. Charlize was born in South African and is an actress and producer.

I don’t believe in charmed lives. I think that tragedy is part of the lesson you learn to lift yourself up, to pick yourself up and to move on. – Charlize Theron

I don’t know if I agree with Charlize’s statement of not believing in someone having a charmed life, I think that it is possible or maybe the way some of us view the ones that have had charmed lives are the ones that didn’t suffer as much or intense tragedy or trauma in ones life. Trauma and tragedy definitely have a way of shaping your personality and we may feel broken at one point during but as we grow and learn how to incorporate what happened into our lives we are stronger at those places we thought were broken. It is a very big lesson for one to learn how to change your perspective on what has happened or what you’re going through, depending on the trauma it may take longer and how long the trauma occurs. Once the situation changes either by you leaving or something changing within the situation you get a sudden shock to the system for what you experienced and how it affected you and then you have to process it to figure out how you’ll live with that. Sometimes you do need outside help but you also need to figure out how to uplift yourself and I believe that’s what Charlize was talking about is being able to do this because you are the one that is with yourself all the time and no one can be there for you more than yourself so when you get that realization and learn meditation, mindfulness, relaxation and or whatever it takes to calm yourself the better off you’ll be.

Girls need to know that being a feminist is a good thing. It doesn’t mean you hate men. It means equal rights. If you’re doing the same job, you should be compensated and treated in the same way. – Charlize Theron

I think men and women do have difficulty with feminism or working, playing side by side with females because we are taught from an early age and often by a parent how we are to act or react to someone of the opposite sex. That gets to be a part of how you do things and so it is difficult if one was taught in a way to change your way of thinking but it is possible. If you keep evolving and growing in life and realize that not everything remains the same and the only thing that is constant is change then it shouldn’t be as hard if you get out of your own way or mindset that you don’t want to change for anyone. Everything changes. We grow with the changes. We should accept each other and treat each other equally.

We all understand situations where it’s swim or drown. Sometimes we surprise ourselves when we start swimming and see how well we can do it. – Charlize Theron

I love this analogy about how we need to view things in life. We often get intimidated by the unknown and not knowing or not having done something. You either figure out how or you end up failing. It is okay to fail because you do learn from your failure but sometimes when you try something new you realize that it’s not so bad and you do surprise yourself at what you can accomplish if you just try.
