And while I shake my head and laugh these off, I realize they pose a societal problem. We're teaching women they shouldn't want passion, desire, or to be seen as sexy. Yes, you should want your mate to love, cherish, and adore you. But one set of emotions isn't exclusive of the other. You can love the person you lust after. Just because you desire a person doesn't mean you can't cherish them as well. As to the yoga pants, I can't control what other people think about me and even if I could-what's wrong with someone finding me sexy? It's too much pressure. And, at the end of the day, we're just making ourselves miserable.
Obviously every relationship and every person is different. I appreciate that. Some people don't want sexy in their life. I'm good with that. But please don't push your ideas onto the next generation. I'm a confident woman who's been married for eighteen years (this November) and the meme's and posts have an affect on me. I start to question myself. I can only imagine the affect they have on younger women who are in a new relationship.
