I Was Afraid to Be By Myself....

I had always been afraid to be by myself ; I never thought I could make it on my own without someone... That is, until at the age of 22.  The man I loved and had 2 childern with, killed himself. He left me alone and scared to death . I had to stand on my own two feet and count on myself . I was responsible for the care of two other human beings , my own flesh and blood. I struggled through and made it . Once I  knew I DIDN'T  have to have someone . I found a wonderful man that I WANTED not NEEDED. I can honestly say being alone helped me grow up and get to know who I am !!!!!

I think our children keep us strong and help us to survive the unthinkable. Its like we have to stay strong for them. I admire your courage. I can't imagine going through something like that. I think it is great that you found your independence first and then a great man! The worst thing a woman can do is to appear desperate and needy especially when alone or single. That is surely one way to attract the wrong type of men.
