According to CNN, Indian actress Jiah Khan committed suicide on June 3. Her death was shocking, an unwanted surprise to the Bollywood community. A note left behind explained her untimely departure; she was distraught over a male lover’s abusive treatment. As a result, death was more palatable than life. Khan’s passing symbolizes the desperate measures some females take when dealing with matters of the heart – taking loyalty too far allowing another party to manipulate their existence.
Five things women should stop doing for love:
- Crime. The penal system is full of prostitutes who made their pimps rich. After being accosted by the police, these sex trafficking victims are treated as criminals. Then the men they support bail them out just to start the cycle all over again.
- Sacrificing children. Movies like “Precious” strike a chord with viewers because molestation is so prevalent. In the U.S. alone there are 747,408 registered sex offenders nationwide. (See Statistic Brain) This number is alarming, but what’s worse is that mothers often know about the abuse. They catch boyfriends – spouses – uncles – brothers – inappropriately touching their children, but instead of protecting the minor they opt to protect the adult.
- Emptying nest eggs. Remember the tale of the suave young lover who woos a lonely retiree out of her life savings? These days, average Joes are doing it too! Paul Francois, dubbed the “Sweetheart Swindler”, stole more than $300,000 dollars from two ladies. He wasn’t a head turner or even youthful. His talent: picking out desperate females willing to handover their hard-earned cash with the promise of marriage.
- Sharing one guy. Man shortages, biological clocks, and immaturity fuel unhealthy ties amongst otherwise reasonable women. In order to have a mate, they do anything to get his affection. Perfect example: the on and off tryst involving Karrueche Tran and Rihanna over Chris Brown. The tabloids (and Twitter) are full of stories about Brown dating both simultaneously. Currently, they have all gone their separate ways, but for a while he got to have his cake and eat it too. (See Chris Brown Loves Rihanna & Karrueche)
- Acting stupid. In the documentary “Queen of Versailles”, Jackie Siegel presents as a ditzy trophy wife happily wed to a billionaire thirty years her senior. Although she’s past forty, Jackie dresses and acts like a twenty-something sporting fake boobs, bleached blond hair, and super tight clothes. The problem: she graduated college with an engineering degree. Clearly, Jackie is not dumb, only playing a character to keep a much older man that disrespected her throughout the entire filming of the documentary.
Hopefully, Jiah Khan’s suicide helps others struggling with love issues. No one is worth your life, especially when it shines so brightly.
