It’s a fine line between being a bitch and being a pushover.
No one really wants to be considered either. Well, on a good day anyway.
There are days when being a bitch isn’t such a bad thing . After all, being a bit of a bitch keeps the riff-raff away doesn’t it darlings?
If you’re a stickler for denotation read no further. We’re going with the slang on this one my sweet little pussy cats. Connotation of that slang being ; Bitch (n)- a woman who insists on getting her own way.
A pushover on the other hand is someone who let’s others have their way, even if it comes as a sacrifice.
It doesn’t take much to cross the fine line between Bitch and Pushover. It takes just a slight sway one way or the other to tip the scale one way or the other. The problem is, once you’ve crossed the line, you get stamped with a big ol’ ‘B’.
Even worse, you could become the Pushover – a woman who’s wants and needs aren’t valued. Heaven forbid you cross back and forth making the teeter-totter unstable and become an unpredictable bitch.
Ah, but there it is. The unpredictable bitch. I think that’s the fine grey line; the best place to be. I think I’m happy in that space. Yes, I am willing to be an unpredictable bitch if it means the occasional compromise. I’d rather that, than be spoon-fed opinions and nod my way through life with someone else at the helm.
