So if you're reading this you are probably something like me or just curious why the heck I would write this. A few weeks ago I was making my brother a wooden sign for his Christmas present and when I got to the cutting of the wood I thought to myself, do I know how to do this?
The reality of it is that I had no idea what saw to use, jigsaw? table saw? the old fashioned kind?
I had no idea... but stubborn independent me was going to figure it out!
I picked up the wood measured where it needed to be cut, put on my safety glasses, and off I went to experiment. Just so you know, DON'T use a jigsaw!
But as I struggled to get everything correct I thought to myself Dang! I need a man!
Now if you know me then you know that I am an extremely strong and independent woman. Independence is truly the driving force behind everything I do, since as long as I can remember I’ve had a burning desire to never, ever rely on someone else to take care of me. Never ask for help. And to figure it out on my own.
This independent nature has served me extremely well through life. It fuels my ambition, it stems some confidence, it empowers me to seek knowledge and to make all my big dreams come true.
We live in a society where feminism is at an all time high, where women are fighting for their independence and working their bootys off to live up to their full potential. It is a beautiful time to be alive and a female. However I think parts of feminism are a load of bologna.
Yeah I said it. Get over it.
Here's the thing, I will forever be independent. I won't ask for help unless I truly need it but I've learned that asking for help doesn't show weakness. I won't look to a man for worth. But I will look to the good Lord for it. Im all for the anything you can do, I can do better: even with one arm haha but the reality is that there are just some things that the average female can't do that men can, or can't do as well as men can. My great-grandfather lifted a car off someone once, and no matter how much I go to the gym I just don't have the ability to do that because I am not a fully developed male.
I had a conversation with a few friends once about men and women being equal and I'm sorry but I don't think that men and women should be equal. Call me old-fashioned but I will forever stick to the roots the Bible teaches on men and women's roles. Now I'm not saying that these don't go both ways because they do partially but for example.... If an intruder came into my home I would immediately grab my children and protect them with all my ability and I do expect my husband to take the leader role in the home and protect his family and then Ill protect my children next with all my power.
ROLE OF THE HUSBAND
ROLE OF THE WIFE
There are ranks described—Christ, the husband, the wife, and then the children. You would not expect to walk into a doctor's office and be greeted by the doctor, measured and weighed by the receptionist, and then treated by the nurse. Right? There are certain orders to things because that's what works.
