Plain Jane vs Smart Jo

the tussle continues within. which do i aspire to be? while the former gets a lot of happiness which i term as 'bovine' since it is not she who is the source of her own pleasures but someone else, usually some man (be it father, significant half or the son, depending on her stage in life), the latter strives for her own happiness...
if this is the defining characteristic, then i certainly qualify to be the latter... and not without the usual heartburns, the usual midnight oil burns, or the usual toll... but at the end of it all, there is immense satisfaction...
also, by the standards of the former, i do not have two significant differentiators... neither a father anymore, nor a son... and it is i who prayer fervently for a daughter... any takes on who am i? if not any of the above, certainly different than the rest...

The tussle is absolutely needless if u go by the Bangla proverb about cooking & tying one's hair.I guess we r all into differnt roles at various pts of time.Its just the 'cheeni' level that keeps altering with change of places & roles.Any further quest on this wud be seen as attempts to cater to ego.Keep goin great guns...

why do you only say +ve? why not some -ves too??? don't worry it will not hurt my ego... no matter how big that might be...

Dont really comment keeping fragile egos in mind. will definitely point -ves as & wen I find them, till then bask in the glory of +ve vibes
