I always have had to be strong, feminine but strong, and it tires me at times, I can get very anxious, I hide it well, but it comes on me like an express train, one minute I am calm the next I am panicking and cant breathe, pains in my chest and my eyes wide. What I would give for someone to lean on that was stronger than I, more able than I and wiser than I.
Life as a single parent, can be tough, It has made me hard and cynical even, often the bitch rises in me, the lioness ready to roar. What I would give for a Lion of a man.
Being intelligent can mean I am confident and independent in thoughts and word. I can have a sharp tongue, and can be very willful and if I am honest a bit bratty (I have not until recently considered myself a brat, but on honest reflection I can see I am at times. What I would give to have that brat tamed.
