Exiled

She met a man who wanted to move her away from his family, which also served to move her away from her own friends.  The thing is, she became more rigid and controlled over the years, probably from this type of restriction placed on her by her husband.  I last saw her a few years ago, and it made me sad that this once fun, laughing, vibrant woman, who had always been a little shy, had become so self controlled.  It’s just no good.  It’s never worth giving up those you enjoy being with in order to please a man.  I think she may have done it because she had lost both of her parents and a sister, and so there was some sense of helplessness and actually wanting to be dependent on somebody else who could provide for her.  But, to me, it’s just not worth letting yourself be changed that much by someone else’s requirements.
