I don’t write too much original content now but I had a thought recently. Out of the 3 years that my SO and I have been together the amount of people that tell me I’m lucky to be with him vs the opposite is significantly different.
Now, I am not saying that I don’t feel lucky or that I don’t feel blessed to be with him. That’s not the point I’m getting at. I actually have a few points. The first of which is, it’s actually pretty fucked up how many times in the course of 3 years that I have said “yeah he’s such a great guy” and the response is 9 times out of 10 is “wow you’re so lucky to have him”
…..if I had a gif right here it’d be a girl saying “BITCH MAYBE HE DA LUCKY ONE”
My personal opinion is that this stems from where our society came from…Fathers selling off their daughters and the daughters being “lucky” that a man actually wanted them in the first place.
It’s been so engrained in our brains that women should feel lucky when men choose US that we don’t stop to think about the reverse.
I am a great human being
I am a great person to be around
I am hot as shit and anyone looking at me should start sizzling.
Yes, I am lucky.
I am lucky to be surround by great people, including my SO, but I am mostly very lucky to have myself because I am great too.
ps. I made up the number 36
