"Happy". Isn't that what all of us want? I believe so. I believe life can be that simple. More than fame, fortune and romance, I do believe that what most of us want more than anything is to be "happy". Not only is it an emotion that many of us want, but it's an emotion that is sometimes forgotten. Funny how it took a hit song to remind many of us of what is truly important.
Being "happy", is important, and more importantly being "happy" with one's partner is even more important. I remember my ex-husband once said to me that he wanted to show me what the real world was like and that life was difficult, not one of having a silver spoon in one's mouth, and not fun and games. He also informed me that life was not about applauding "moi", and telling me how wonderful I was. "Excuse me?" since when do I need a man in my life to inform me that life is not all "fun"? Since when do I need some dip shit to give me a reality check on life? And since when do I need a man to tell me how imperfect I am? Answer, I don't. As for my response, my response to this man who was my husband, was "well I wished you had said that before I married you, because I can assure you I NEVER would have married you!" Seriously guys, I dare you. I dare you to treat a woman like crap and see how far it gets you.
Sadly the worse a man treats a woman the more she wants him. Sadly the worse some women treat men the more those men worship them. However some of us are done. Some of us have learned that life's too short to be anything, but "happy". I was asked what I wanted from a man with whom I would become involved and it hit me as "Happy", happened to be playing in the background. "Happy", that's what I want from a partner. If I am to not be single, I want someone who I feel "happy" being around. Why would I want someone who brings me down? Why would I accept someone who makes me feel anything, but "happy"? Likewise I want my partner to see me and get "happy" himself. Life is short, and it's too short to be with someone who brings us down. Maybe I'm a dreamer, but I want a partner with whom I can laugh, with whom I can relax, with whom I can be me, and with whom I can be "happy". "Happy", it's just that simple. I want to be "happy", and if a man takes away from my being "happy", well, "I'd rather be single...for now!"
