    You Don't Own Me

    I have been married three times and have had my share of lovers.  Thank God, I have never been seriously hurt by anyone.     It is interesting how you can be so into a man and think everything is going to great in the relationship and then out of no where, he becomes...

    Men that think they are "in control" of women

    I Lmao At Them

    I use to be a controlled woman..  USE TO BE, is the key meaning of my story. I had to learn to recognize it, label it and ditch it. If a woman can't get her man to be a partner, talking is a big waste of time, then we..me..have a problem. Now I can spot it and it's actually...

    The Only Man~

    The only man that I ever allowed to tell me what to do is no longer on the earth plane, he was my father. When he died in 2000, at his burial, I told my husband, "there lies the only man who will ever tell this woman what to do, bless his soul."  He is sadly missed and deeply...

    Individuality.

    I am an individual independent woman who when she is with men friends makes up her own mind of what I will do. I will not be dictated to, since my choice to be with someone does not remove from me my free will, and ability to change my mind.

    And I cannot stand controlling women.

    Just the thought makes me cringe. Maybe it's my stubbornness? Idk. I guess I just don't act like a "traditional" woman who follows every command with a smile. I don't need someone who doesn't let me go out with my guy friends or something lol. I guess it's not very popular...
