My Parents Were Not Right...

  • The world is not going to be kind, it's a screwed up, nasty place with the good souls busting their butts to spread the love.
  • Men are not after sex from me, most don't even acknowledge I have a sexual identity (licks to those who know I do and treat me with respect).
  • I can not get the recognition I deserve by simply being polite, I am not a submissive, pretty Princess. I must prove my worth to myself before anyone else and then I choose my critics carefully.
  • Marriage is not the ideal, it is just an ideal desire and a nice fairytale.
     
  • "I love you" never means "I am in Love with you" when you want it to.

Thanks a lot...I know what not to be and appreciate that you protected me, but it's my life, not yours.

Couldn't agree with you more on the idea of marriage.

Wish I knew in H.S. and college that I'm not as stupid as I think I am. That I had potential to do something more than clerical work or be a housewife. I wish I knew that I would regret depending on my husband to take care of me financially. I wish I got my degree when I was young and didn't have 3 kids and all the worries and responsibilities of raising them on my mind on top of term papers and mid terms. <br><br />

Girls .. forget about boys .. don't be afraid of having brains and using it. Be strong, be confident, be aggressive. Grab life by the B*lls!!!! Otherwise, you will regret it one day; I promise! I've seen it time and again, abusive controlling husbands. Even my husband who is very charasmatic, charming and successful is controlling me. I want out; I can't afford out! My father always said; your husband's career comes first. I should have never listened.

Love you, Fe.

I will be an honest and loving mother with confidence.
