why do we need to prove our worth by the amount of money our men make?
In my 20’s the first question asked of me was where am i from
in my 30’s it was what do i do for a living
in my 40’s it is no longer a question but a concern not only that i don’t have a man or kids
but “maybe you will find a rich husband”
yeah that will make everything ok.
stop asking me why i am alone
ask me what i am reading
stop asking me why i have no children
ask me what project i am working on
stop asking me to be your sex toy without commitment
ask me what vision i have for my life.
be a friend
be clear in your convictions
and aim higher than being
