“Woman was created because man was bored.”
I am beside myself.
This was something a woman said, but because Jesus turned water into wine, those might have not been the exact words, but were very much implied.
I stopped tagging my posts on social media because I figured those who wanted to read my opinion would subscribe on email because that’s where some important things come in. Also I am not going to publicize from here on out controversial thoughts on social media for attention. You are here because you looked for me. I hope! Or stumbled into… As the spirit leads. 🙂
A bit of background we were having a heated discussion that started with why people should entertain men cheating, to women being the ‘lesser’ species… And I was in shock that people thought this way, and most of all that it’s a belief I once held even as a Christian.
If you believe this as a woman, that’s why he chose you over a woman like me. That’s why he thought of you as fun, as interesting, as intelligent, as what he was looking for. That’s why he stopped calling or texting me. That’s why, female, he appreciates how you lay him and use your assets to seduce him. That’s why you win over women like me- boring, uptight- too Christian. He’ll take you places I dream of being taken by my future husband and buy you things I wish I man would buy me just because, other than liquor to try make me loosen up in more than one area.
That’s why you’ll use words like happy and make me (some lonely times) regret my walk with God because this journey is hard. That’s why your posts online wind me up and make me wonder, what is it about you that made them see you as more worthy? It’s why every thought is a fight between loving myself and wondering why a stranger thought to talk to you and treat me like a pillar holding up a building. For me to question my beauty; should I include detox this week and jog? Or is it how I smile? Should I move my hips more or make my words and voice more ‘feminine’ and sensual?
Should I not write this??
Or do I need to tone down my ‘strong’ personality because I might be the problem? 😆 on the real though, self worth comes from within but I won’t pretend that I’m never plagued with such thoughts from time to time.
Female who thinks those words I opened this post with, good for you for the perks you are getting.
But honestly, I am done wishing to have that.
“…but for Adam there was not found a helper meet (suitable, adapted, complementary) for him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam; and while he slept, He took one of his ribs or a part of his side and closed up the [place with] flesh. And the rib or part of his side which the Lord God had taken from the man He built up and made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. Then Adam said, This [creature] is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of a man. Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall become united and cleave to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” Genesis 2:20-24 AMPC
