Single Woman salute

 Why may You ask a salutation of this kind? It’s because you have taken on the dual rolls of both father and mother. Not easy or imagined when marriage started, full of promise, and the dream of being together for a lifetime. In most cases you face this trial and challenge with bravery, even when facing the daunting task of being both a father and a mother to children looking for guidance from both. Most of the time, the man bails, after looking for new and strange. Caught by a subtle slip instead of being a man, accepting his faults, apologizing for injuries to your heart and soul, he takes the easy way out, leaving you alone, unable to take ownership of his own behavior. Instead he chooses to throw away your precious love and devotion, to fulfill moments of gratification, he needs to bolster his weak and arrogant ego. I can only hope you find support to fill the void so callously created, in someone who won’t take you for granted, and can love you for who you are, not what he wants you to be.
