Something I've thought about

Now I know she's nuttier than a fruitcake.....but I seriously do love Eartha Kitt and her plight, and her power, and what she stood for. Maybe she's a bit...umm....overbearing? Selfish. I dunno....but I kinda like it.

Yikes. I'm thinking about if this is me....old and nutty and like...fuck it. I often, unfortunately, think about my ex and all of the compromises he wanted me to make for him. And it makes me not want to make any compromises at all. I feel like its not a compromise when you love the person and they love you back. You just do it. They make you want to. You make them want to. When a friend of mine decided she was going to get married to her now husband, she told me, "he makes me want to be a better person." I like that idea. Doesn't seem like a compromise at all. It seems like...."I fell in love with myself" and "yes I would like someone to share me with me." Don't that sound good? Hmmph. Eartha wasn't THAT crazy.


  1. Like my Grandma Kennedy used to say, "Different strokes for different folks."

  2. Eartha isn't that crazy. Anyone's ex I know of (including my own) wanted you to be a "worse" person. A "toned down" person. Because it made them feel good about themselves or more secure. Eartha knows loving yourself is key. If any of our ex's loved themselves more (this includes loving themselves more than their ego) you would never feel you need to make a painful compromise and be someone you're not. Right?
