“I grew up in a family where I was groomed for marriage from a very young age.
I was always taught to act “properly” in front of men, even men who were a lot older than me, because I was guaranteed to always be sexualized regardless of my age.
I was taught to cook because no one would marry a girl who could not feed him.
I was taught to not go out into the sun because no one wants a dark wife.

Everything I’ve been taught my entire life has been to eventually be enough for a man. I stopped caring a few years ago- if a man wants me, he’ll have to go by my rules, not society’s. “
