worthless

Most girls dream of having a man, having someone to lean on and provide for them. They want someone who will make them feel like a princess with just one look.  I don’t. My dream is different than most girls’. Mine is being able to stand by myself when times get rough. I want to be able to make my own way through this swamp we call life, not have someone else do it for me. Most importantly, I don’t want to have to rely on someone else to make me feel special, because if someone holds the power to do that, then they also have the power to make me feel worthless. I’m not worthless. Some people will disagree with me for this, they’ll say I’m headstrong, and that I’m out of my place. I pity those people. Maybe they’re just scared, scared that their self-worth depends on another human being, when it doesn’t have to. Scared that everything they’ve ever wanted, may not be what they wanted after all…
