Being true to one’s self…if a man can not handle a “real” woman, there are many transparent fakes that know only what mass media tells them they should be. Sadly, I found it exhausting after 36 years to “pretend” and left before I suffocated. My mother-in-law said I would get used to it 35 years ago, yet my wasband’s sister said 35 years ago I would “get a gut full and leave.” Well, only one was right and NO one should have to get used to a tyrannical marriage. I am living in a duplex by a railroad track with thrift shop furnishings and all I took were my cat and 2 dogs, a 10 yr old vehicle and my clothes. He abused me in so many ways and staying was no longer an option. He is in HIS house, with HIS TV, 2 boats, 3 vehicles, appliances, furniture and the home I created for my family is HIS. I left with my sanity and what little I could cram into my vehicle. I pray he is happy and wish him to live 36 more years…one year for every year we were married. That will put him at 100 years old and he likely will not miss me, but he deserves getting used to life without me. A family was all I asked for and thank God for loving children and grandchildren…my Soul is at peace and I can breathe:) A novel could be written of my journey, but I will settle for what is in my life at present and beyond. No one should EVER be told to “get used to it” where abuse is involved. There is more to a real woman than what is between her legs! Mass media has ruined a real woman’s soul and purpose…so very sad. We are someone’s daughter, mother, sister, grandmother, and for those that cherish us, a soulful wife. We are NO ONE’s object. That is not what God intended for marriage and true womanhood. Where are real men that appreciate true women…definitely not in my “neck of the woods.” Cutie pie is blessed to have wise parents to delineate marital roles.

I sincerely salute you 😀 this is an absolutely brilliant blog. It truly reflects the deep feelings of a father and the love he has for his daughter. It shows that a man no matter how sincere, brilliant and gentlemanly will never be able to match up to the love of a father and mother. A beautiful message to all the lovely ladies out there from the perspective of a father.

In my teens and throughout my adult life that message was so pervasive: “how to please your man” and all of that, in all of the magazines and everything. I hate it. I can’t imagine how I’ve chosen the men I’ve chosen over the course of my life. I”m very happy to be a single mother not dating now at 41 and hope it will be different for my daughter. I love motherhood. Relationships with men? I totally give up.

A Daddy’s Letter to His Little Girl – Echo, Echo, Echo, I do. I’m not a Daddy, but I’m a Mommy and I agree. Whole-heartedly … though one thing I would add … that he be given over to a love of Christ. Girls, listen up to what your Daddy (and Mommy) have to say. We love you more than you could know and more each day. 🙂
