How I'm feelin'...... Cleo Style

So........ I am usually upbeat, and I like upbeat music. I am a happy person.

But not lately.

I'm not quite sure what's going on, but instead of fighting it like I usually do, I have given in. I don't intend to stay down... anyone who knows me even a little bit knows that keeping me down is impossible. However..... this time, for a little while, I am allowing these feelings to wash over me like scalding water.

I am a very strong woman. I carry a lot. And I carry it with ease most of the time. I am a true and loyal friend.

When I love you, I love you. Period.

I speak my mind. ALWAYS. Even when I know it's gonna come back and bite me in the ass. And while I know that integrity is a great quality, there are just times when things do not need to be vocalized. This is the tough part for me.
I know I'm a good person, and I think most people would tend to agree. Except for the ones who don't.

There is a line from one of my very favorite songs that reads: "...Or should I just get along with myself? I never did get along with everybody else....." While I have been trying hard to do what's right, I don't always succeed. Turns out, people are threatened by strong women. Men are supposed to be strong, but women are supposed to be meek and mild. I tried that, it didn't take.

It is a tough job, meshing the tough cookie with the tender heart. It leads to being often misunderstood.

I am not as compassionate as I should be, I know this. I am not as humble as I should be, I know this too. I am hard to handle and sometimes even harder to please. I have a sharp tongue. But I also have a big heart. I have many flaws, but if you can't handle them, then you don't deserve the rest of me.

Here ya go...I love these lyrics- they make me feel less isolated.

Falling Slowly is the greatest sex song of all time.

Both of these are on my bath mix on my ipod.

And seriously...what is the matter with your man?

Also, sometimes it's good to be sad for a while. Cry, mope around, hit things, swear a lot. Do whatever you have to do to get it out. Just don't let it consume you. It is hard to climb back out of that hole if you get in to deep.

But just remember...When you're ready, I've been there and I know the way out...

Also, men who can't handle strong women are cowards. And undeserving of the greatness that follows a woman who knows who she is.

Maybe handle is the wrong word...accept is probably better.

Just so ya know- this is not about the hubster. He learned to get outta my way a while ago. This is just about people you deal with on a day to day basis...
