Asking for what I want


Sunny out.. shorts and sandles weather again. I'm not sure if it's halter top weather or not.

Today I took my cat outside and she and I enjoyed the sun on our faces and the warmth of it.

Maybe it's even topless suntanning weather...at least at noon hour.

Someone told me that I'm not afraid to ask for what I want...That I should do that...

Someone told me I'm not boring..I dont know if they realise how much that meant to me. I'm not sure why women are afraid to ask for what they want and need. Why are we afraid to be un-boring? After all.. women should know what they like, need and want.

It's taken me a long time to get to the point where I can express my opinions, and actually say what I want. It's a small victory.

It is a fundamental right of every human being to have an opinion. The ability of individuals to express those opinions is an essential feature without which there can be no democracy.

Arguably, there is a corresponding obligation on each person to learn the facts when forming that opnion, more certainly when expressing it.

A number of years ago, I lived in Regina, and there was a plebiscite on store hours. I can not recall all the details, but it had to do with closing times, and also with "quiet days" when stores could not open, or only open for half the day. The people voted to continue the restrictions, and several of my neighbours were dissatisfied with the outcome. One of them told me he had voted for the closing because he felt that the workers should have time with their families, but he himself really wanted to be able to shop in the evenings. I pointed out that he had got the result he voted for. If everyone voted for what they thought someone else wanted, they have no right to be disappointed.

Anyway, that is my rant for today.

Good for you, Linds, on achieving mental independence.

It is actually no "small victory".... as you said... MOST people never get there!!

We are all entitled to opinions, wants and needs... and it is also okay to go after getting those fulfilled!!!

Hmmmm... topless sun tanning?? I would certainly say you are NOT "boring"!!

Oh how I want and NEED the warm sunshine on my face!!

Thanks for sharing!
