Intimately, C

Society is a funny place for a woman. It's a place that expects women to be these beautiful, demure little things here for the enjoyment of everyone else, but at the same time, places inconceivable demands on their shoulders to raise children and have careers and be wives and... and... and. The { e x p e c t a t i o n s }are exhausting. We are ground to nubs by those unyielding expectations like the incessant beating of waves against a cliff if we're not careful and ever vigilant of how close we're getting to our breaking point.  Some of us buckle. But some of us thrive.  For some, the hard exterior is worn away so the intricate, unique, patina'ed interior can shine.  And shine, it does.  

"I can be changed by what happens to me.
But i refuse to be reduced by it."
