Dear Someone XXXII

Dear Someone,

He told me he could protect me.

I looked him in the eyes, and said, “No thank you, I am capable of protecting myself.”

Because, just because I’m a woman, doesn’t mean I’m weak.

Just because I’m a woman, doesn’t mean I’m looking for a protector.

You show them you’re not scared. You show them you are not a girl, but a strong, independent woman.

You show them you aren’t dependent on other people to save you.

Because, just because you wear dresses, doesn’t mean you can’t knock the breath out of someone.

And, sometimes boys tell me I’m mean. No. I am guarded, I am cautious, I am ready to leave, and that’s because men haven’t proved to me they are worthy of my trust.

Love,

Liv
