Being a single woman sucks even more.
Because, unless you know everything about everything, dealing with mechanics and it specialists, cellphone companies and police and men will always be a nightmare. Even if you know things really well, you will be conned.
Because having people deliver things to you when u live alone, will always be taking a chance.
Because being kind and polite and friendly is seen as a weakness and will be abused.
Because just having fun is putting your life in danger.
Because no matter how strong and great you become, there’ll always be someone waiting to put you in your place.
Because being you and coping is never enough. You have to be perfect. The perfect mum/girlfriend/wife.
Because you were born to be objectified and people think they have a right to rate you on what they see.
Because 50 percent of women who are murdered are killed by their loved ones.
Because you get paid less, regardless.
Because you take on all the emotional labour.
Because having guy friends means being cool with listening to men berate the women in their lives
Because getting pregnant is both your fault and your burden.
Because you were indoctrinated to keep things running and do more than you can.
Because other women don’t have your back.
Because men don’t care if they don’t think they can sleep with you.
Happy women’s day.
