Why Doesn't Batwoman Have A Sidekick?
Balance, as in life balance, might as well be a four-letter word because
it seems like a no-no for us grinders. I know people who won’t even
admit when they are tired or overwhelmed. But if we want our sons,
daughters, loved ones, or acquaintances to have balanced lives that
include work, rest, and play, then we need to role-model that balance.
If your actions say you can do everything at any time without any help,
don’t complain when everyone is happy to let you be Batwoman and save
the world. Why doesn’t Batwoman have a sidekick anyway, like Batman,
Robinson Crusoe, and the Lone Ranger? And why is she wearing a swimsuit
and boots? What kind of crime-fighting attire is that? Superman wore
flats and Batman had a butler. Batwoman is fictional. That’s why. Keep
it real. You can do it all but you cannot do it all well. Someone or
something will suffer. In the words of Phyllis Diller, “Housework won’t
kill you, but why take the chance?”
