I Want to Be Strong

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 144 People

    I want to stand strong,

    I want to be independent, I want to stand on my own. I fed up of waiting for people to help me, depend on others for my own problems. Yet I do not know how to take the first step.

    Like a Man

    Gnaw away at my flesh and give me skin like Teflon, so all wounding words ricochets off. Gouge out my eyes and give me laser vision, so I never shed a tear or become mystified under a magicians stare. Impregnate me with an Iron man’s will, so my faith never falters...

    I Find It a Bit Odd...

    ...that this group consists mainly of women.  Women are supposed to want to be beautiful, not strong.  Men are supposed to want to be strong.  If we all looked deep in our hearts, those things are what each sex would truly desire.
