Women can appear critical but really be very accepting and patient in the long view.
We’re just natural teachers.
Women can appear stoic and in control but our hearts are breaking.
We’re just used to not being respected or loved by men so we don’t show our vulnerability.
Women can act or seem weak but we learn that superficial behavior because it’s the only way we’ll get attention or the touch we need; not sex necessarily, although sex is great if there are warmth and care.
We’re just taught by society that it’s incredibly unacceptable for a woman to be powerful and decisive because men will feel intimidated and lash out, but in truth we are powerful and we know it.
Women act like we don’t know how beautiful we are but in truth, we know how much our bodies sway others and some women exploit it to get their way.
We’re just used to being valued only for that; over-sexualized, and not for our minds. Almost all women value beauty.
Women act like they’re not as smart as men but in truth, we all tell each other we know we’re smarter and most of the time, we are. Most women hide it.
We’re just literally paid less and punished in every freaking field we enter if we show we’re smarter than the men. This is incredible oppression and depressing for us the world over. Not to mention the loss to humanity of our ideas and inventions.
Most women find men adorable in so many different ways but we continue to shake our heads at your dramatic, irrational behavior sometimes.
We just love the special one that we pick and want to be your best friend if you’ll let us. It’s not control, it’s love.
Please let us be who we are in our power and beauty without abandoning us or pushing us away. But if and when you do, we always have ourselves and will not allow the human species, which we carry; die because of your choices and the institutions you control. Our bodies and our hearts are PRICELESS. Every woman LOVES deeply and truly and that is our gift and our power.
