Sitting On a Crown of Thorns...
Throughout my life I have become a strong and independant woman. It was not a lifestyle choice but a situation thrust upon me in a desperate attempt to survive. Like gasping for air, I crawled my way up from an unhappy previous life and adapted like a chameleon to it's new environment.
I was married, had and raised two children, was poor and downtrodden. The quest for true love eluded me entirely but the lust for freedom burned so brightly in me that it was inevitable that I would make my escape eventually. I got divorced, bought my own home and secured a good job.
Now I am an independant and strong woman. I pay my own bills, and owe nobody nothing. I have complete and total freedom to do as I wish.
...but consider this
Because I am independant, it doesn't make me hard or unnaproachable. I still have doubts about myself everyday. I worry that being so independant will lead to a live of loneliness. I would gladly share what I have with someone special who loved me and I do want to be loved.
Men I have dated, have been intimidated by my status. It is as if they are affraid I don't need them. Financially, I probably don't but emotionally I do need someone special in my life.
I am a strong independant woman...but I am not an island. I sit on my success like I am sitting on a crown of thorns. I bear it because it has become my life away from a much worse scenario.
I wish someone would see that and give me a chance...
