What defines the perfect woman
June Cleaver - what exactly is her role on this earth?
Alright, I have been on here a lot today, but I am finding this rather therapuetic. I am going to make this quick and it may not be too funny, but I HAVE to get something off of my chest. Alright, I was just writing specifics of why I feel the way that I do right now, but my husband warned me that I may lose friends. What is it with our society? Why can't we all just be honest about the way that we feel without worrying what other people might think?
Well, to make a long story short....a friend of ours is pregnant AGAIN. They will have more children than us now and I AM HAVING THIS TOTALLY CRAZY REACTION to the news.
We do not want any more kids right now, and may never want any more, but once you hear that another woman is going to outdo you with her child-bearing skills, this crazed "I'll show you that I am more perfect" mentality comes riding to the surface. It is scary. I know it is all wrong, but why do we women do this to each other? It starts in Middle School and it NEVER stops.
If we could all just be honest about who we are, then maybe no one would come out looking like the ms. perfect june cleaver that we know she is not. Personally, I just like to throw myself out there. It's too bad that too much honesty can make a woman really imperfect.
Gotta go to bed. P.S. I think perfection is found in making other people feel that they are better than you, not visa versa.
