First let me start by saying I consider myself an independent woman. I have a graduate degree, make six-figure, own my home, and have a sizable 401K. This is not to brag but to show the mindset that I had of I don't need a man because I got my own stuff. I have come to realize that mindset is flawed because we were not created to be alone. Then I thought by saying "I don't need a man but I want one" that made my flawed mindset sound better but again I was wrong. I've realized that not only do I want a man (not just any man now ladies!) but I need him also. I need a man for all those things that money can't buy and things can't satisfy. I need a man for the emotional, physical, and spiritual parts of having an Adam. Your six-figure job cannot hold you at night, laugh with you, or make you feel safe in its arms. That graduate degree can't dry your tears, pray with you, or meet your sexual needs. We really need to put away that mindset that because I have my own "stuff" that I could replace the importance of having a solid man in your life. Let's not forget men are human too so they want to feel not only wanted but also needed. Just my two cents!!
