This is written according to my musings and experience - in no way I am trying to attack or offend; only to give a perspective and provoke some thinking about this subject.
You want to kick and scream don't you?
But you've been told that little girls should nod and keep their lips sealed.
They should only speak when spoken to.
They should only try be the best 'whatever' for a girl, they shouldn't want to be better than the boys to.
They should laugh when boys will be boys. Little girls shouldn't feel ashamed when a boy spies on her in the shower or 'accidentally' sees up her skirt.
If they kick your chair - tell them to quit it. Loudly and with confidence.
Hah. Speak up little one. Do not nod your head and tolerate it.
You do hit, run and kick like a girl - because you are one and they can't help but be jealous of the way your eyes sparkle when you've been beaten down and choose to get back up again.
There will be good guys in your life. I repeat: there will be good guys in your life. They'll make you get out of the house when you don't want to. They'll ask you how you're doing hours, weeks and years after dads death. They'll hold you close and they'll be with you and sit with you - they'll help you find your laugh again.
They'll tease you, and challenge you. They'll be there for you. You'll be so thankful for them. It will seem like you never even met a jerk. But you did - and they are still around. They just don't bother you like they used to.
