I love the idea that a woman should never shrink herself to fit someone else’s narrow vision. Indeed she should stand tall and hold her head high. Let’s be honest, it can be a long wait for the ‘man with bigger hands’. But it is a longer sentence to bow your back and clip your wings to fit a prison cell, and swallow the bitter truth that you could have been more. You could have had more.
Even if that man (or woman) never steps up, you will still have yourself, whole and gloriously true. Spread your wings and fly.
