Day 22 — Allowing another person to fully love me means they must…
get over my rowdy nature. I ain’t gonna change and that’s set. I have some habits that are well set in stone and I have quite a personality. I use it to the max when I want something.
I’m not nagging but I’m definitely demanding. Persuasion, manipulation, “what if this was you” kind of questions. They all work.
Being a woman is a hard task. Being a lovable woman is a lot of work. All men have their ideals set by their mothers or grandmothers. A woman should cook. A woman should keep the house tidy. A woman should never ask the man why he’s doing what he’s doing. A woman should never interfere in a discussion with an original opinion. Taking care of kids. Being pretty all day long with a manicure and pedicure and salon hair.
Well screw that! I can’t cook to save my life. I clean occassionally and on small surfaces. I always butt in and ask him why he’s doing stuff when I can’t work it out on my own and I never shut up. About anything. I occasionally wear makeup (only when I’m going out and never with him) and only go to a hair salon every two years. A friend of mine trims the end of my long beautiful mane of hair every 6 months for free.
He loves me in spite of all these things and sometimes I think he loves me for these things specifically. I am nothing like he’s seen before and he hasn’t seen all of me yet. 🙂
And now – a few tips from when women were lovable women!
