do you want to know what the difference between you and I is?
I don’t need a man by my side to make me feel happy.
I don’t need a text good morning
and good night to make me feel special.

do you not realize what happens when your happiness depends
solely on someone else?
..they leave you and you are left with nothing.
you will have to pick up your broken fucking pieces alone
telling yourself,
“It won’t happen again. It won’t happen again.”
It’s the biggest lie you will feed yourself.
you’re a hopeless romantic that will learn the hard way.

and until you accept this, you are a lovesick fool.
so don’t ever tell me I am less of a woman
because a man isn’t by my side.

I’ve been there, sweetheart.
my side belongs to no one but me

I have grown too independent for my own good. The only thing I need a man for is to reach the top shelf when my nails are too wet to grab a stool//d.a.h (via whisperingbones)
