My mom has always been guarded and independent. It taught me to only rely on myself & no one else.
My mom was never the "stay-at-home" type. She worked more than my dad & was second in command at her job for my entire childhood & more until recently retiring.
In short, it is thanks to her I've never believed in allowing a man to provide for me and my life.
I will never allow myself to be disrespected or walked over in the household. Everything will be equal.
I WILL enjoy cleaning and cooking with my partner, we will share the responsibilities, we will work together.
I will never allow myself to be called a housewife & I will continue to fight against this sexist term.
