A Lover’s Mentality
I know I can’t let this relationship with Shame go so easy. I have to maintain my strength as a woman and take back what belongs to me. Question is, do we as women deserve better? Or did I get so comfortable to the point where I felt like I needed Shame? As much as I know that he is cheating, part of me can’t put it past him, and the other half wants to deal with him and the rumors. Shame is all I know as far as I’m concerned.
