People seem to believe that a woman needs a man to make her life easier. They seem to believe that we can not do anything ourselves.
Social norms teach that men are the protectors and providers of the family and that women are the caretakers. Well, I’ll tell you that it’s a lot of BS.
I know many women who are more masculine than men by their side. I know single mothers raising their children and two parents.
And I’m tired of thinking that a woman needs a man in her life. She does not need him, but she can have her if she wants.
You should all believe that you are strong and independent. You can take care of yourself. You can make a good life. They are more than capable. You do not need another person in your life to become what you want.
Of course, that does not mean you have to exclude everyone because you can do things yourself. Do not be an enemy of the relationship. You can be in a relationship while being independent.
Never allow yourself to lose that independence and be subordinated to someone you are just for the sake of relationship. There are many other men there; Men who will not force you to give up your freedom.
It’s not love, it’s control.
Love is not about making decisions for someone else. Love does not call to check if your partner is cheating on you. Love does not doubt everything the other person says.
Love is a support and trust. Love is a source of inspiration and motivation.
I let someone fall in love with me, but I set limits because I do not want to lose myself.
I do not necessarily need a man in my life, but I choose a man. It’s me I’ll always choose love, but not at any price. I will love someone because I want, not because I have to do it.
I am absolutely able to live alone. I do not need anyone to show me how to live or what to do. I am independent and I want to stay like that.
I will never sacrifice myself and stay in a crappy relationship just because I have no choice. I refuse to be trapped with a man I do not like just because I need him.
When I fall in love, the man standing next to me does not have to carry me on his shoulders for the rest of his life. We will be partners and lovers. We create an indestructible union and partnership. We will help each other.
Love should not simply concern the attention to the other person. Of course, you are there for each other when needed.
But love is not about throwing garbage behind someone. No one should be just a donor or a customer in a relationship. They must be both donors and takers. If they need you, you must be there and if you need them, they must do the same.
I do not want to lower my partner’s expectations. I want him to know that I will work as much as he does. I want him to know that I will never let myself be supported just because he’s used to not lift a finger or make an effort
If this relationship works, we must do our best – both of us.
I do not need to be saved. I do not seek a prince charming to wake me from my deep sleep. I do not need a knight on a white horse to save me.
I need an equal partner. I need a friend I do not need or need a man to solve my problems, or I need a man who becomes one.
I want a man who supports me – and I do not talk about it financially. A man who is encouraged to continue if I want to give up. I want a man who cares about my dreams as much as I do. I do not want someone to lower me and tell me that I can not do anything.
I want someone who is proud of me and everything I do.
I want a life partner. Someone who can build a happy future with me and do not bother me.
