Yes, this is for someone very specifically.
For those of you that may have had any questions or wanted to make assumptions about my life:
Yes, I am alone.
No, I don’t need a man to make my life complete.
More, I don’t want a man to make my life complete.
No, this isn’t the ideal situation.
No, this isn’t where I thought I would be on the eve of my 40th birthday.
But, I am more than capable of taking care of myself and my children.
I am more than capable of doing what needs to be done.
I don’t want a relationship.
There is a difference between being single cause you’re forced to and being single cause you want to.
I want to be single.
I was married for 16 years and I wasn’t happy. Why would I jump back into that?
And here’s another news flash:
Many men think that smart is sexy.
But the men that think that smart is sexy are the ones that are secure enough in their own skin to be with a smart woman.
And being smart has nothing to do with being single.
I am a smart, beautiful, single-by-choice woman who has met each hardship head on.
It hasn’t always been easy and it will be hard sometimes in the future.
But I’ll get through it.
So, for you haters out there – and you know who you are – keep on hating.
I know it’s because you are jealous of the strong woman I am.
I know it’s because you wish you could be more like me.
And I’m OK with that.
My life hasn’t been perfect in the past, isn’t perfect right now, and I’m sure it won’t be perfect in the future.
But I’ll have made it without leaning on a man and expecting him to take care of me.
And that’s pretty awesome.
