The 10 don’ts

Don’t assume I am weak because I am a woman.

Don’t imagine that you know me if you are with me.

Don’t believe that if my gaze is serene I am at peace.

Don’t imagine my life is perfect because I might look perfect.

Don’t hurt me because I withdraw and new beginnings are myths.

Don’t lie to me because I can feel it in my gut.

Don’t feel pity for me when I am down because I always get up.

Don’t presume that if I came back once it will repeat.

Don’t stay away when I look aloof: it’s when I need you the most.

Don’t run for the hills because my silence will haunt you.

Don’t be mindless because I can only deal with mindful.

Stay. Please.
