    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...

    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.

    A Global Threat

    This is a mental tune. Real Punk. I love it. The song spoke to me and before I turned 40 I did just this. This was my life, 10 hours a night in a UK cubicle! After 20 years of loyalty to the Biggest Bank in the UK I did indeed discover I was just a number...... I stood up, I...

    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...

    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?”

    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...

    The problem with keeping our emotions to

    ourselves.. Being that strong, stoic type is that peeps assume we are cold, heartless. That we don't struggle just like everyone else. Just because we say we are fine, doesn't mean we are. Just because we aren't able to express our empathy in the same ways doesn't mean we don't...

    Was Raised to Be

    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...
