You cannot break a woman whose self-love is centered on possibility, on hope, on the potential she has to become something even more wild and wonderful than she already is.
You don’t need him to tell you that you deserve better. You don’t need him to tell you how wonderful you are, how lucky someone else will be to have you. You don’t need his affirmation, his testimony to how awesome of a person you are.
To be ‘like a girl’ is to be confident, resilient, brilliant and strong.
You can’t silence a woman who isn’t afraid of her voice.
‘If you’re not happy single, you won’t be happy taken. Happiness comes from within, not from men.’
“I call on the LORD in my distress, and he answers me.” — Psalm 120:1
Like the intimidation of a mountain’s highest peak or the power of the rumble of ocean waves, femininity and sexuality exist to be admired, respected, and most of all, explored.
Maybe, of all the characteristics and descriptions of the world, I want something that reflects my spirit, my heart, my tenacity and lust for life.
