I want my daughters too learn, live and breath this. I think every woman needs to learn to not need anyone and to always always be able to hold herself up alone. Nothing wrong with love of being with a man, just learn to keep your independence!
(The girl who seemed unbreakable broke, the girl who always laughed cried, the girl who never stop trying finally gave up. She dropped a fake smile as a tear ran down her cheek and she whispered to herself "I can't do this anymore" ~ Unknown)
You may have settled for mediocrity in the past, but that’s the old you. The new you knows better and your future deserves better. Stay true to who you are now and promise yourself a life of love, joy, and happiness.
