It’s true. My best guy friend reminds me all the time. And looking back at my track record, who am I to disagree?
We pull and bend with very little to work with. We make time for people who don’t deserve it when there’s no time left. We accept excuses even when we don’t believe them, and settle for less than we settled for to begin with. Because our hearts are too kind, and too optimistic, and too willing that we see the potential of a man rather than what is right before our very eyes.
Not to say men aren’t stupid. I remind my best guy friend all the time. They push limits, and push buttons, and then pull away. They withhold information, but never want to be held accountable for it. They are greedy and selfish, but have no problem sharing themselves. Because they rather entertain the potential of being with a dozen women, than be with the one woman with the most potential standing right before their very eyes.
Of course they do. Because there will always be at least one woman there to accept it.
There’s no question about it. We are fucking dumb. But we are also brave enough to take a leap of faith. Confident in knowing we will always get right back up again. And strong beyond belief to smile through the bruises on our heart and stab wounds in our soul. There lies beauty in our scars. And to compromise the very things that make us women just to be able to act like a man, is one of the most stupid things a woman could ever do.
