She is part of the pack, but tentatively lingers on the edge of it.

Always looking for her escape.

She follows—but if you watch closely, she is silently carving her own route.

Softly, lightly she goes.

But she is not to be underestimated; though she is the underdog, she is fiercely protective of her pack.

For now she subserviently conforms, though her time to shine is nearing and soon she will rise.

Some misunderstand her. They think she is complicated, awkward, and see her as a challenge.

But they are wasting their time if they think they will take her mind with their swollen-ego games.

She will wrestle, roll over, and let them think they are superior so they can win the battle…for now. But she knows they will not win the psychological war.

For she is a rebellious force with whispers more powerful than hurricanes.

She imprints a haunting reflection on anyone who crosses her path and meets the flickering bewitchment of her gaze.

This iconic beauty is a dazzling, ancient starlight, shimmering on the mountainside, howling her conflicting emotions to the midnight Moon.

She has been hurt, viciously attacked, and she is wary so she tentatively treads to avoid risking carnage with those who torment and taunt her.

But do not mistake her wounded stance for weakness or fear; she has a stormy, tempestuous streak pulsing through her veins and a ferocious fire is raging within, burning up salt and bones.

She appears restrained but she is strong and wise, curiously observing, collecting a mixture of skills and knowledge so that as soon as her destined moment strikes, she can break free.

Despite the agonizing pain the pack inflicted upon her, she was a soft cushion that embraced all of their frustration and aggression, and with care, she tenderly relieved their tension.

They misunderstood and misjudged her fragile exterior, so now they will live to bitterly taste their regrets and mourn her mysterious presence long after she has gone.

They will howl with grieving frenzy hoping their aching cries will reach her, and she will hear their echoes but she will never turn back.

She cared and knows the thunder will arrive, and she will temporarily suffer for her decision, but she was pinned down, dominated, and downcast for far too long.

Soon she will shape-shift into a lone warrior wolf, with wide glistening eyes, wandering the wilderness in solitude—though her humble Omega spirit will remain.

She knew they loved her and she loved them, but she also needs to put herself first for once, to stretch her limbs, head out to the unknown, and stand brave and tall.

She craves a gentle, effortless, enchanting kind of love so she will roam close to the illuminated ocean, where she can unravel her knots and heal…

…and someday, as sure as the heavens protectively rest over her, she will stumble upon it.

I aspire to reach your level of completely raw honesty. Thank you for sharing. 💚

No. You are Omega Cecelia. Omega as a mature woman is what you describe. It's only when we have no true identity of self that we are what is described. That's why they don't know Omega because if they did, they would know that when the Omega woman is true to her nature she is a fine balance between both. An Omega woman can deal with an Alpha man, but won't castrate him or put up with his bs. Beta men are terrified of an Omega woman because she reflects back to him what he should be as a man. He mistakes a mature Omega as an Alpha, but shies away from her because she's dubious in her nature. That is how you tell true Alpha's from a Beta. Alpha men can and will respect an Omega because she's a bridge between both. She just has to demand it. He will at first fight her and even try to rid himself of her at the same time but because of the type of woman she is he finds it difficult to let her go. Eventually he accepts his love for her. The beta however will run when she shows her strength. It will scare him away.

Beth Hannon awwww, so amazing to read this update as I was just thinking about you and how things went for you after reading your other comment! Praying hard that everything works out perfectly for you, and so good to know that you found your strength and learned so much through your experience. I think gratitude for our journey, whatever ups and downs we have, is the best healing elixer, and also helps us to move forward stronger, wiser, and more resilient that before. <3 Sending you much love and wishing you all the happiness! Thank you from my heart too. It's incredible to know you read this often!

(Ps I know I commented 7 weeks ago, but I finally left the guy 2 days ago, and this article has been something I’ve read daily that helped me to be strong and not sad avd weak😊)

Beth Hannon Mar 25, 2018 3:23am

I love this, it is a beautiful comment, I feel the exact same as you except I live other women (only date men) but I’m super protective of women when I see a man try to overpower/lie/cheat/manipulate/abuse etc... therefore I date men who treat me not great, I think maybe to save other women from him. Would be interesting to chat avd become your friend from afar, maybe we can make eachother stronger and more accepting ❤️ Thank you fur your beautiful reply Burtley 🐶🤷🏼‍♀️❤️

Beth Hannon Mar 25, 2018 3:18am
