Or, money is love.
I wrote and posted this article within a few hours one night out of a feeling of frustration and a deep yearning for a world of abundance. I wish for it to be read as that - an expression of that moment, that state of mind and feeling. I might say things differently today. I have made different experiences, and more promising ones (tells me something about the law of attraction, too!) However I believe the article is a wonderful example of how there is always another perspective to look at things - and I found it highly interesting to receive and respond to the comments on Medium.
I am fed up.
I am fed up with being told I do not work enough. I am fed up with being told (by myself as well as others) I need to find a partner who will provide for my daughter and me. I am fed up being asked by my neighbors why I didn’t do the garden, it is looking so untidy. I am fed up asking for help from my dad to pay our rent. I am fed up taking jobs that are not paid what people should be paying just because I need the money.
More than anything else though, I am fed up with men who take advantage of my situation. Fed up with men who ask me if I want to sleep with them for money. I know, it sounds ridiculous. How could anyone suggest that? But it happened more often than men have actually stepped in and been plain helpful by, say, cooking a meal for us without expecting anything in return. Too deep is the belief that once a woman has let a man into her life, her home, and that once he was supportive to her in some way, the logical consequence is that she will sleep with him sooner or later. May this ignorance and disrespect be forgiven by somebody sometime — I am having a hard time to do so.
And I wonder: Is it really so hard to give? To show unconditional love?
