Talkin from a male perspective....it is good to see a strong woman.
In the truth we are taught that we are the one's to take the lead... we are the one's who must try to be in control.
I agree with you that women are taught too, in a sense be weak..
...to accept their own situation..
Being single is a wonderful thing....obviously i'm not talkin from your perspective....but for me it is a way to find myself....it took me three years after a divorce to truly realise that i do not need anyone else...yes someone else may be an addition to my life or even something special, but it is not the be all... and end all of life.
I hope that one day my own daughter will turn into a strong woman with opinions of her own, and not look to a man to be her opinion maker.
All i have to say is be strong....you have two daughters that want to learn how to be a woman....you go, teach them by example.
Ordinary people just like you and me...
We're the keepers of our destiny...
