That awkward moment when I have a firmer handshake than a man. It happens way too often. Men please learn. A good handshake will get you far.
I’m tired of being surrounded by movies, shows, songs, posts, books, ads, and people that keep saying I need to be married to be happy. I need to have a man on my arm to feel joy and success.
I’m not waiting until there is a ring on my finger for my life to start.
I’m living my life now.
I’m not waiting for a man to complete me.
I’m whole in Christ.
I want to do what I love, go where I want to go, be who I want to be.
And if I meet a man along the way who can compliment me, then Ill invite him into my life with open and loving arms.
But my life started the day I took my first breath.
I love my life.
I have joy every day and I don’t need a man to feel that way.
I’m tired of the world telling me I’m nothing unless I’ve changed my last name.
I’m tired of every song and movie feeding some unrealistic idea of romance and leaving me to obsess about it.
Show me the strong, single females who are living life.
Show me the women who aren’t busy looking for a man, but are living their lives and if a man comes into their lives then so be it, but if not their lives are still awesome.
They aren’t praised enough.
We same women are finally free from oppression but we are just in a different kind.
I know these women exist but they are hard to find.
So I’m going to be the role model I’m looking for.
I’m going to be the strong, independent woman who doesn’t need a man to have an amazing life.
I would love a record player more than a lot of other things.
