Damsels

“And I’m sorry to tell you this,
but I’m no damsel in distress.”

Let me be clear, I didn’t need you to save me, but it would have been nice to have you there by my side. To know you’d be there regardless. But I guess the truth of the matter is that you couldn’t handle not being the hero. You never wanted a woman that could stand on her two feet without some assistance. And I’m sorry to tell you this, but I’m no damsel in distress.

All or nothing
isn’t the right attitude.

      1. I’m in the spot of assuming the responsibility cuz no one else will. And I have to remember that when others get consistent help, that I’ve had help, too. 🙂
