Too many times I’ve had to face that the men I’ve met are simply intimidated by me. By my independence. By my ability to stand on my own. And I’ve even had moments I wished I could be a weaker person to make it easier for a man to feel more powerful, then maybe he’d want me.
Thankfully I always come back to my senses and embrace who I am. A strong independent woman who has survived more than her share of struggles and has plenty of battle-scars, inside and out. And while I admit, I get lonely and miss a man’s strong arms surrounding me, like a cape protecting me, allowing me to release the pressures of my day, i am literally unable to depend on another person. I’ve been let down too many times in my life by those I gave my heart to.
It’s nice to know there’s other amazing women like me.

At least I thought I did. Life has a way of making you see the truth…beating it over and over in your head until you not only acknowledge it, but accept it.
Some people aren’t what we thought, or what we want them to be. Maybe they manipulate us when we are weak and vulnerable, saying exactly what we need to hear. Maybe they believe what they are telling us, if only in the brief moment they say it.
Is the truth what we need to see? Or is it this aching feeling deep in our gut pulling us back, that makes no sense other than this force we can’t explain? Or is it just loneliness poking and prodding, lowering our standards of what we think we deserve?
Eventually it’s time to let go and accept what they make so obvious. We either never knew them at all or we just don’t know who they are anymore. We all change in life. Our experiences make us grow and change. It’s part of our journey. Accept the lesson and thank them for it. If they are meant to be in your future, they will be.
