For the second time in a week, I was propositioned in a way that led me to explain exactly who I am, what I expect and what I won’t accept.
Each time, I said I have a mind as well as a body so I’m rarely talked into anything. I make choices, even if not all of them are good. But, they’re my decisions and I live with the consequences.
I’m not a challenge to be conquered or a chronically ill person to be coddled. I’m not an aging woman to be pitied or a single woman who is to relegated to second best.
I am person who deserves to be loved, respected and sometimes admired for the life that I’ve carved out for myself.
