Harriet Tubman did not allow her hardships to dictate her whole entire life. Born into slavery, having being bought and sold as property, she escaped her master in 1849. She did what many other escaped slaves could not do. She decided to risk her life and help other slaves escape slavery with the help of the Underground Railroad. It has been documented that she led over 300 slaves to freedom over a period of 11 years. She was the most wanted woman in the south, her capture dead or alive was $40,000. Her work didn't end when the Civil War began, she served as a nurse, and she remained a tireless advocate for civil and human rights movement up to her death in 1913. Widely known and well-respected while she was alive, after her death she became an American icon. She is frequently referred to as the “Moses of her people” for her tireless efforts at freeing slaves, even at great personal danger to herself, serving as an inspiration for future generations of civil right activists.

It is okay to tell your mate what you like and what you don’t like. We cannot expect them to be mind readers and then roll our lips out on the floor when they get it wrong. We are all entitled to change but that has to be communicated to the other person. Communication can also be in the form of nonverbal cues. Nonverbal cues such as a touch, eye contact or moving closer is a form of communication. If my mate sits on the sofa and I move closer to him, it speaks to him and I never said a word. Nonverbal cues or body language help you to understand what your mate is trying to say. Rolling your eyes so hard in the back of your head is also nonverbal but it might not be the best form of nonverbal communication if you are trying build a healthy happy relationship. Take some time to talk with your mate or nonverbally communicate and see if there is a change in the relationship.
