too independent. I heard that yet again today. I hate it. Why do people think it is a bad thing?
As a single thirty something woman, if I don’t take care of myself, who will? I live on my own. I hold a job. I travel with or without people. I would survive if I never find another boyfriend and be fine about it.
Why do people think being independent is such a bad thing? I can’t and don’t want to live with my parents. At almost 37, those days are long behind me. Besides if I had a boyfriend, going home to my parents house would be a drag. I am as close (too close according to some people) as I want to be for my own sanity.
I can’t sit twiddling my thumbs until someone comes along. When someone comes along, I don’t want another father and or an overseer. One father is all I can handle. I don’t want to be attached at the hip nor disappear as so many women do when they are with someone.
I just want to be me. I don’t want to be changed and I don’t want to change someone. I am tired of pretending to be someone I am not and then I can’t live up to that person. Independence definitely fits my political philosophy.
Why do people feel the need to tell me these things?
I want someone in my life but I don’t want them to dominate my life and take over. It’s a partnership not a prison.
