Actions speak louder than words. So don't screw someone over again and again and again, then say "I'm sorry you misunderstood what I said/did". Actions speak louder than your fake words. Your just a lousy person. Nope, no misunderstanding there.
I want my daughters too learn, live and breath this. I think every woman needs to learn to not need anyone and to always always be able to hold herself up alone. Nothing wrong with love of being with a man, just learn to keep your independence!
