From the women of my generation

Dear World,

We don't want to be confined to the house while the 'professionals' pass us by like our grandmothers.
We don't want to be confined to the office while daycare centers raise our children like our mothers.

We try to be everything to everyone in search of happiness and validation.  However, we want to make our own decisions. We want others to trust us to make them.  We don't want everyone to second guess us.

We want to make a difference in our world.
We want to make a difference in the world.

We know we can't be everything to everyone.  We know that just injures us and those we love.  But there are harsh words and sad faces that accompany disappointment.  Those we fear.

Can someone just give us a break and love us?

Signed,
The Women of Generation X
