Happy Weekend Inspiration Card 6

I'm dedicating this weekend's inspiration card to Illustration Friday theme "detach", and to one of my friends. She just left someone who treated her really badly. You go girl!!! It's not okay and there's no excuse for mistreating a woman (or anyone for that matter), be it verbally, mentally or physically. I feel with all the women out there who are stuck in relationships that aren't good for them. Hopefully this card reaches out a little bit, and inspires more women to be strong. There are really great, good men out there. Don't be fooled into believing it's as good as it gets if someone treats you badly. Be a princess, walk away!

Have a great, happy weekend everyone.
Astrid

Thanks for visiting, Astrid, and your kind words!

Fantastic piece. My wife was in a similar relationship before we got together.

By the way, I'm curious on how you found my site...

And, great post on becoming an illustrator. I'm slowly getting there!

Exactly! ~ I just told a friend of mine that she needed to dump the lyin' cheatin' fool she'd been seeing. I told her she was a princess and needed to treat herself with the accorded respect! I texted her later that night "u r a princess". She dumped him!!
