Many ladies view skill acquisition from wrong perspective’s, reasons being that they feel:
It is for ladies that cannot get good jobs.
It is for those who do not have good results.
Others are impatient and lazy to build a business. By way of reorientation, acquiring a skill ought to be valued by every lady whether or not they are in a relationship.
A skill is the capacity to do something well, skills are usually acquired or learned. Some other ladies fantasies, some of such fantasies are:
I cannot wait to get married and rest.
I will marry a rich man so I won’t suffer.
I have a job so what do I need a skill for.
I cannot date a guy that cannot pay all my bills.
Any lady in a relationship who can cater for part of the bills is the desire of every man. No matter how wealthy a man is, if his partner can take part of the bills she earns his respect.
In every relationship there are times when a man cannot be reached, every lady ought to be able to provide for some basic needs in the absence of her partner. A woman who is not resourceful can provide nothing for her home in the absence of a job while an employed lady without a skill cannot make expenses until she’s paid.
It is important to note that many women who have been enlisted in the Forbes magazine as the world’s most powerful women are entrepreneurs, highly skilled and are in relationships (Forbes, 2015).
Skills are essential in relationships to support each other in other to avoid unnecessary pressures, no matter how much partners love themselves there comes a time when the man asks ‘cant u do anything to support yourself’?
Let your partner be proud of you, not like he is not providing but let him know your worth, that you are not helpless without a man. Learn a skill and be diligent enough to build it to a comfortable height before going into any serious relationship, when you build your skill to that height you can have some time for your relationship. No man wants to get married to a lazy woman. Even if your partner is wealthy, it is very wrong for a woman in a relationship to be idle, especially in an economy where jobs are insecure, the organizations management may just decide to go redundant or lay off workers due to inability to meet up with the company’s expenses and in such situation he comes back home without a pay, and if his partner has not been doing anything the family begins to depend fully on relatives, friends, church members, neighbors etc to provide for their basic needs.
A woman should be productive and resourceful whether or not she is employed rather she should employ someone to manage the business as it can serve as a second source of income.
It can never be too late to acquire a skill.
