Finding My Path

I'm 35 years old, and I found your program six months ago.  I have listened every day since then.  Early on, I heard you say you were a "recovering feminist," and I thought "what is that??"  Having gone to an elite, liberal arts university, I thought the feminist narrative was the TRUTH.  I never thought to question it, but after listening to you, I realized that this was only one side of a very specific agenda.

The feminist movement broke down traditions, values, and norms that protected women.  In my 20s, I always thought there was something wrong with me, but now I realize that I was trying to fit into a social structure that is very broken.  I stopped dating last year after finding myself in yet another bad relationship.  Now I focus on my work, hobbies, groups, and charities.  I've gotten off every form of social media, and that's the best decision I made.  Although I'd rather not be single, I'm very happy with my life.  And best of all, despite being stupid for most of my adult life, I escaped without diseases, marriage mistakes or unwanted children.  Still, I won't settle until I find a good man who is willing to lay down his life for me and treats me like the dignified woman I am.  

I know you always say we must choose wisely.  If I do end up getting engaged, I promise to call you to get your blessing!  I didn't have the best role model for parents, so I thank you for teaching me all the things I should have learned growing up.  I'm finally feeling a sense of confidence because I know I am doing the right thing.  


Remember, all of you can send me "letters" too - by email!  Just sign into (or sign up for) the Dr. Laura Family - it's free - and tell us of your experiences.
