Harden the F*%& Up Princess Peach

Man up and talk about your emotions! Did you know, it is society’s fault that men have this attitude of the toughen up princess syndrome… Let’s face it, when a 2yo girl falls over what do we do? We empathize, provide emotional support and reassurance. When a 2yo boy falls over, what do we do? toughen up princess! Yes we have been psychologically programming children over the generations to act and respond in a particular way, thanks to feminism for identifying the inequality. Therefore say you grow up with mum n dad stuck in the 1800s this is going to result in old fashion expectations, assumptions, beliefs, morals in comparison to say someone grow up within a single parent house hold, or raised by highly educated parents. So when someone says toughen up princess… what do you think? Personally, I think your poor soul… deprived of emotional intellect and general overall well being. Moral of the story why does this mean it’s ok to hold your believes above another’s? Simply, in other words who died and make you king of philosophical thoughts? Being an avid researcher and higher academic relating to sociological, psychological and environment conditioning, I must point out, for all the princes out there who are toughen up, you may be a king, a king of your own lunch box. On this note, continuously hearing and seeing responses like harden up, just makes me question, as an employer perhaps the industry needs to implement debriefing sessions or perhaps a little cognitive behaviour therapy within the workplace environment could hold the answer to achieving respect and empathy out on site – thinking I should get out pen and paper and create a CBT course to address the stigma and irrational beliefs about the human species.

What makes resource companies different from industrial?

“What makes resource companies different from industrial? There are a number of significant differences between resource and industrial companies. These differences are unique to resource companies and require specific knowledge, hence the motivation for writing this book. That is not to say that industrial-based companies — such as those in the telecommunications industry, for example — do not have complex issues that require specialist knowledge that is often technical in nature. However, it seems easier…

Western Australia is the best place to be. “Commsec economist Savanth Sebastian says Australia has moved from having an economy running at three speeds to one in which WA stands apart from the rest, as a result of the mining boom. “I think that’s something the Australian economy, the public really has to get used to,” Mr Sebastian said. “It’s going to be something that’s around for some time.
