    I Am Who I Am

    I am a strong, independent woman. Not because that is what I originally choose, but it was forced upon me. My father’s psychological abuse of my mother, forced her to leave him; so she could fulfill her duties as a mother to me. In my early twenties, I had a choice, I could...

    I got here by myself.

    I did it by myself. My achievements I owe only to God and my mentor, my Mother. My parents raised a strong, independant woman. I don't cry. I have been told I intimidate people (unintentionally, of course). I have no time for weakness. But sometimes, I feel envious of all those...

    Can't Afford Not To Be

    I'm the only girl in my house, and I have to be strong for me. I don't have much of a choice. I can't let myself be swept away. Living in a house of guys, I'm expected to be just as strong as they are, if not physically, at least mentally. And I've always been independent. My mom...

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone women could take

    Someday all the pieces will come together.

    Unimaginably good things will transpire in your life, even if everything doesn’t turn out exactly the way you had anticipated. And you will look back at the times that have passed, smile, and ask yourself, “How did I get through all of that?”

    My mother is a very strong and independent woman... so she raised her daughters to be so too. We had no choice or say in the matter. =p My mother asks a lot a questions in her lifetime, so it was of a small wonder that I was born very quizzical myself. Though, I drove my parents...

    You feel so strong and self sufficient

    that it's hard for you to need/want a man. If you need/want one,your standard will be very high and you don't want to just settle.
