It is in my blood to fight, we were all warriors once. We lived in a savage, cruel world where you had to fight to survive. Well kiddos, the world is still savage and anyone who thinks they shouldn’t have to fight to survive is operating under the misguided notion that we are civilized. You must fight. You must learn how.
Why you ask? Because there are too many victims in this world. Too many people who cannot fight back. Too many people unwilling to fight back. What is it? Fear of punishment? Fear of shame? Fear of retaliation? Whatever the fear is, kill it. The world loves victims, and makes so many to feed that love. Don’t be a victim.
I don’t care who you are, you, as an adult, should know how to defend yourself. Dare I say you should know how to kill someone if it comes down to it. It really does make a difference in how life around you cycles when you are fully aware that you could kill someone who intends to harm you. This is not me telling you to kill people. This is me telling you to train yourself to be stronger, to be more confident in your on abilities, to feel powerful. Because too many do not.
Too many women are under the assumption pounded into us from generation after generation that we are the weaker sex. We are not. History shows us that women are just as savage and deadly as men. So stop being a victim. Don’t allow your children to grow up to be victims. We live in a culture of fear. Women can’t go out alone, or travel at night by themselves, or be left alone in a room of men, or visit other nations without an escort. Why? Because we have made ourselves victims. Strike that. I am not a victim. But the female population in general has a victim mentality, one that has been handed down from their mothers, who got it from their mothers, who got it from their mothers, and so on. Because at some point, women stopped being warriors and turned into pretty flowers. Well, guess what sweety? You can still be pretty and deadly. Be like a Larkspur.
Take mixed martial arts classes. Train with cage fighters, but take the oath not to fight in a match and learn all the dirty tricks they know to get over on others. You will never feel as empowered as the day you successfully throw your 200lb trainer off you and follow up with your foot on his throat.
They say a rapist is going to rape, no matter how strong you think you are. I say that is wrong. If a rapist encounters someone who has been trained to kill another, they won’t be raping again. And if we, as a collective sex, train ourselves to be warriors, eventually the rapists/abusers/assaulters of the world will die out.
I am a Larkspur.
