Should You give up Your Independence

Times have changed. As women we have evolved. Gone are the days when women were expected to stay home, be good wives and bear children. Women are now go-getters forging the way and making strides in almost every area of society.

However we still have women who believe it is a man’s job to take care of them and make them happy. This is not a good idea. A relationship should never be about one person’s total dependence on another but rather about two people working together to create something great.

Dependence is one of the key factors that many women become trapped in unhappy and abusive relationships. Even if they have the will to leave, inability to finance themselves keep them trapped. Whether it is a marriage or a relationship maintain your independence. It will be one of the best decisions you have ever made

Allow no one to Break Your Self-confidence

She Rises From the Ashes

She rises from the ashes of her pain

It was not easy but she dug deep inside

and found an inner strength to get her through it.

Now she is not afraid to face her fears

She is not afraid to stand tall and shine

She holds her head high with confidence

And she will rise and keep on rising.

He loves me

“I love you,” he said last night

as he held me tight.

His words were like magic to my ears.

Today he came home angry

and his fist almost sent me

flying down the stair.

“I am leaving,” I screamed

“You wouldn’t dare,” he said.

“If you do I’ll find you and kill you.”

I stared at him trying hard to understand

How this sweet loving man can sometimes

change on me like a chameleon.

He doesn’t mean it you know

After all he loves me!

ps. Often times women find themselves caught up in these situation. Take any threat on your life serious. If he says he will kill you, don’t convince yourself that he won’t. Seek help. Get out. Save yourself.

She Dreams of Love

She dares to be a dreamer

she believes in love,

and even when doubt assails her

her heart still holds on.

For what is life without love

and to have someone to love.

Sometimes she smiles to hide her pain

and hope that someday,

all will be right with the world

and love will find her again.
