As a woman in this day and age, I am in a position to ask a man; What can you do for me that I can’t do for myself?
I pay my own bills. I take care of my household without the help of any man…or woman for that matter except God.
I am in the position to ask, ‘What can you bring to the table?’
I know most men will think aloud, look at me sternly and clearly think that I am referring to money.
No! Let me quickly correct your thoughts and bring you home, ‘I am not referring to money, I need something more’ I need a man who is striving for excellence in every aspect of life.
Now, I can imagine my men seated back in their chairs very well, folded their arms and asking me to explain further.
Okay, ‘I need someone who is striving for excellence mentally because I need conversation and mental stimulation. I don’t need a simpleminded man.
I need someone who is striving for excellence spiritually because I don’t need to be unequally yoked…believers mixed with unbelievers is a recipe for disaster.
I need a man who is striving for excellence financially because I don’t need a financial burden.
I need someone who is sensitive enough to understand what I go through as a woman, but strong enough to keep me grounded.
I need someone who has integrity in dealing with relationships as lies and games playing are not my idea of a strong man.
I need a man who is family-oriented. One who can be the leader, priest and provider to the lives entrusted to him by God.
I need someone whom I can respect. In order to be submissive, I must respect him. I cannot be submissive to a man who is not taking care of his business. I have no problem being submissive…he just has to be worthy.
And by the way, I am not looking for him…He will find me. He will recognize himself in me. He may not be able to explain the connection, but he will always be drawn to me.
God made woman to be a helpmate for man however, I cannot help a man if he cannot help himself.
I have finished spilling the beans and looking at my men who are still stuck in their chairs now with a puzzled look on their faces saying, ‘Eeeii Elsie, you are asking a lot,” Really?
Please do not think or say that because “I AM WORTH A LOT.”
Dedicated to every woman who is worth a lot….and every man who has the brains to understand!!
