Week seven and no letters. Might you be afraid of public exposure? Your secrets (and your identity) are safe with me. firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ve been pushing you hard over the past few weeks and it’s only going to continue. Women need to be independent before we can be coupled up for several reasons. First and foremost, we need to know what our value is so we don’t undersell ourselves when searching for a companion. Second, we need to know that if we’re in a bad relationship (or a relationship that turns bad) that we don’t need to stay and that we can take care of ourselves. Lastly, we need to have a full and complete life of our own and only include a man when he can add to our contentment.
We are exceptionally lucky to live in an era where women are not considered the property of her father and then the property of her husband. We’re lucky that we’re no longer used as bargaining chips in the consolidation of power. We’re lucky that we don’t need a man for a livelihood or even to have children. We’re lucky that we can select our mate based on our wants and needs. However, with great power comes great responsibility and we must choose carefully because happiness is ours to create or destroy.
Being the best possible version of yourself allows you access to a greater number of potential partners to choose from.
