Okay, so...

I have a question for people who read this blog. Which is like all of six, considering I post like once every month, if that. But I do have a question and I would like it answered.

I am probably one of the most strong willed people that I know. I know exactly who I am, what my beliefs are, and what I want to do with my life. I feel like certain people in my life look down on me because of this.

I feel like girls nowadays have no definition outside of a man. It really, really bothers me. I love Michael, my boyfriend of four and a half years more than anything. He really is an important part of my life. That being said, he's not my whole life. I have friends, I have school, I have fanfiction (this is a legit hobby of mine), I have my books, I have my dogs, I have things outside of him that give me fulfillment.

I'm Haley. I'll always be Haley. I feel like it's important to not lose yourself in a relationship, to bury yourself in another person. It doesn't seem fair to me, or to him. I feel like it's important to know and respect yourself in a relationship.

I also feel like I'm in the minority for girls my age around where I am.

I live in a teeny tiny town in South Carolina.

I feel like there's more to life than being barefoot and pregnant.

But I feel like I'm in the minority.

Am I wrong?

  1. You aren't wrong at all. It's important to do things just for YOU. I do.
