Overheard

 

“I really only like strong women!”

(Where have I heard that before?)

I so wanted to say to him,

“All women are strong….just in different ways!”

Some women toil for years on end with difficult husbands and demanding children.

Some women sojourn alone….facing solitude and isolation with equanimity.

Some women undertake Herculean tasks….to contribute to their communities.

And some women….(like I am inclined to believe you are referring to)

Are so comfortable demanding your complete adoration and attention

That you convince yourself that they are “strong” ….because they make you feel so weak.
