I noticed this group in the side bar. Great name and concept! My middle name is Allison and it means "truthful warrior maid," so I'm a bit of a handful to my husband and kids at times. :D Looking forward to joining forces with you and the other ladies in this group. Tina

Just one of the many stories. Thank God I had the strength, stood up, and left.

A Story and a Struggle Between Writer's Needs and Reader's Needs

I was told at school that I wasn't 'university material' and foolishly I believed it but just after my fortieth birthday I graduated from my history course with an honours degree.  I would like to have taken that certificate and shoved it up the teacher who told me that rubbish in the first place!

Dear New Members,

Welcome to our forum for MisBehaving Women. This forum is for those (mainly women) who are determined to pursue their dreams and rise above externally imposed limitations. It's our little corner of the world where we are free to be... Most of all, we seek to break patriarchal cultural patterns that seek to keep women “in their place.” If you watch the news, it is clear that there are many who are determined to take us back to circa 1800 (when women were property).

Remember, the matriarchs of the various women's movement fought hard for many of the rights we enjoy today. There are no excuses for us to be silent on any issue because we are women of courage and vision, women who demand that our voices be heard…women who dare to "MisBehave".

Have you "MisBehaved" lately? Remember the famous words of Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, "Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History."  If you would like to share a victory, a struggle, or simply a quiet moment of realization that came to you as you traveled the path toward your dreams, we would love to hear your stories.  

Peace & Blessings,
Dawn Nicole Martin

A post about women tearing down other women- and why it makes me so freaking angy:

Hi Paige, I think I'm supposed to reply here to your comment, but I'm a newbie so please forgive me if I'm "Misbehavin'" LOL 

OUCH! This has got to hurt. I'm not an expert on the dynamics of relationships even though I've been married to the same man for 31 years. That said, I've got a couple of things that come to mind. 

First, I think you should put as much distance between your writing and your husband. Write when he's not around, if you can. And don't mention it to him, at least temporarily. 

It seems like there is something going on in him. Maybe on some level he feels threatened by your writing. Perhaps it's the time it takes or your devotion to it. It's possible he's not even aware of what it is that's bugging him. Maybe at some point when things are going well between you, you can ask him to think about what he's feeling deep down. Something unresolved from childhood, maybe? 

There comes a point where you reassuring him all the time is going to cause you to become embittered. Better to communicate as much as you can before that happens. You might need an arbitrator/counselor to help. 

I hope you can work it out. Please keep us posted. ((HUGS))

Hi everyone!

I need some advice.

I have a husband who is pretty sure that everything I write revolves around him, and he usually interprets it negatively!

I can usually handle his negativity, but my big problem seems to be that I subconsciously allow him to inhibit my writing.

Every time he expresses something negative about my work, I have a very hard time getting back on the writing wagon.

Any thoughts on how I can handle this?

I just wrote a post about pregnancy and marijuana.  Thought that it applied to the "misbehaving women" category.
