My mama said "Never rely on a man for money. Always make your own."
She said "Make sure you go to college. You need it to be successful."
Mama said if you're unhappy with a situation, leave.
Conversely, dad said "why make one woman miserable, when i can make so many so happy?" - (for reference, see above) 😱🙄🧐

"Happy girls are the prettiest."
A watched pot never boils. (uh, yes it does! Who even came up with that?)
You get the point. It's the culture! It's a vibe.
All of these sayings from another time and space are deeeeeply implanted in our brains.
Making us smaller and smaller and smaller.
