I want you to walk in my shoes and see things through my eyes. He is so selfish that if he cannot have me, no one can. And although we never are going to be allies, maybe you can at least sympathize with me a little and understand why I stayed with him despite you coming along.We had a relationship that worked perfectly until he decided two was better than one. Initially, this was supposed to be a situation where there were no strings attached. Yet, he managed to attach himself to me and I fell for him.
I am a woman just like you and I am angry because somehow everyone wants to throw dirt on my name by labeling me a jump-off as a means of demeaning and devaluing me.
I am a woman that knows what she wants and is a relationship with no strings attached. Why should I apologize for making an informed decision to be the woman whom he consensually decides to be intimate with? But woman to woman, I pity you; at least I truly know who he is and what he represents. Let’s face facts; I know more about him than you do. Believe it or not, I was minding my own business when he came along and let me add without any mention of you.
The father again turned and scolded the boy for making too much noise. How could this man be so quick to stub out all happiness in his own boy? I would gladly take a rake in the face or a jackhammer to my feet before I cut my own son down or make him feel small.
The boy again shrunk back and cowered against the wall, wilted. How could this man not cherish the only time he’ll ever have to be to this boy?
Unfortunately, often I have been erroneously named a jump-off when, often, there is no woman to speak of in his life. Did it ever occur to you that I was here long before the thought of you was even conjured up? Everyone wants to label me as the one who ruined your relationship. Once I knew about you, I stepped back; but he pursued me even more aggressively.
