I have a client, I'll call Julie. She is a beautiful woman and the setting that I'm working with the phone. She is kind and sweet and very smart. I love and she is working with me to improve social skills and so you can work better with men. I think I'm very good at it. I grew up with a mother who had eight siblings.
My father had seven brothers and I have two brothers of my own. I have a sister too, but when I was younger I was the girl in the neighborhood that could compete with the kids playing ball or pickle in the front yard. I liked to win. My sister was more on crafts and sewing. I chose the later going, but was never as talented as my sister in things domestic. I was the one who had to learn to be feminine.
I've always been "one of the boys" until college when I realized that was not being treated special by the guys at all. They were rough and tough around me and did not hesitate to speak out against me either. I remember once in college felt had had enough. I was a freshman and going out with football players. Everyone liked to hang me, but when it came time to ask the girls for a party, I was stuck on the country. I decided to change that in a blink of an eye. Disappeared. It did not go to the cafeteria to go out every night.
