Where the President of the United States, uses him contracting the virus during a global pandemic; as a rollout for the election!? Wtf is going on here? 👀
Someone once called me the “trunk of my family tree;” it meant that I was the foundation that balanced everyone in my family. I am The Fixer. With this title came great pride, optimism and pressure. I felt that if I could help everyone else with their stuff, I would feel fulfilled. That however, is not the case. It’s quiet the contrary; I feel drained, like I am not taking enough care of myself and as much as I give, I can’t catch a break. I try to stay positive and see the brighter side of things rather than focus on anything negative. So I thought to myself, “what do I need to feel better?”
Mercy is what I need. I am a strong, smart, independent and I usually will ask for help when I need it. At this point, I need support; emotional and metal support. This blog is sort of like therapy for me, I can be who I am and feel free in doing so without feeling judged. I have a tendency to let things build up in me and then I explode. At the same time, I don’t like to talk about these things with the people I am close with because I don’t want them to worry about me. This is something that many people I know, do. Life is tough enough, I don’t want to burden others with my shit! That leaves me looking for an outlet to express myself and lately, the things that have been going on in this world have me feeling down. But I remind myself to be grateful for who & what I do have in my life. And when you give love, you get love ❤️
As down as I feel, I still have to drive to care for and nurture my fellow man. And the things that I am witnessing right now have me hurting. Injustice, lack of compassion, lack of empathy, lack of understanding, lack of knowledge, it’s all overwhelming.
So as someone, somewhere, going through something; as you read this just know, everything is going to be alright. Things will get better. Someone, somewhere cares about you. You are special, you are important, you are loved. Sending you SO much love xo
Means one of two things; you’re petty or you’re a coward. 😭😂
In order for me to accept your apology, it has to include some variation of one of the following words:
Sorry, Regret, Remorse, Apologize.
It has somehow become acceptable in society to be rude & immoral. It has some sort of an intriguing effect on people.
I was brought up to be kind and respectful to others. Watching humans treat each other unjust makes me angry and confused. Listening to the pointless arguments and bigotry is disappointing.
We need to do better because things are progressively getting worse.
Peace ☮️ & Love 💟
So, yesterday the United States of America announced that Donald Trump would be the 45th President. I was in shock because I thought his racist remarks (since the beginning of his campaign,) shady political connects outside of the US and most recently his sexist ways being brought to light; I never imagined that my country, that I am so proud to be a citizen, would elect a person with such behavior into the White House. Let me say, this election was a despicable. I was not happy with the choice of the candidates and so it started out bad! I figured along the way, their both liars on some level. A liar is a liar is a liar. I did think Hilary seemed more manipulative and discrete regarding her indiscretions. But at least she has a background in working in the US Government for YEARS. It’s like you interview two candidates for a position, you don’t like either but you have to pick one. Your best bet would be to pick the candidate that has experience and not the candidate who knows nothing about the business or how it’s run and has already violated multiple standards you have for the employees that are already employed!!!
To the people that didn’t vote, it is your civil duty to vote. (That is all)
I could say the election is BS and the President it chosen by a small group of people we don’t know about (who the hell knows.) But the 2016 Presidential Election will go down as one of the most shameful events I will have witnessed in my lifetime.
Like I said, I was in a complete shock when I read that Donald Trump would be our next president. But soon after I felt sad and defeated, I took a sedative and I realized that none of this is in my control and I have to let go of the anger and pain. I have to accept the outcome of the election and all I can do now is see what this man can do for our country or better yet, what can the people of this country do for our future.
The struggle is real for females. I can’t say I know what the struggle is like for males but I can tell you what my struggles are.
My first struggle in life was getting my period for the first time. I did not understand why my body was expelling blood from my vagina nor why this process had to take place on a monthly basis but I knew for sure that IT SUCKED. Once I looked into the menstrual cycle and why it occurred, I understood this process was necessary and it became clear to me that females have it the worst lol. Besides our period, woman endure a lot, that a good percentage of men do not have to consider. As a girlfriend/wife I work full-time then come home and it’s time to start cooking. While I’m cooking, I’m straightening up the house so when my man/husband comes home, he is pleased with what he sees. Along with keeping a clean house, I have to make sure clothes are washed, food shopping is done, bills are paid, my guy is taken care of and I have to look good doing it. Looking good includes: hair done, eyebrows done, mani pedi (when I feel like it *Fab voice), shaved and looking good in and out of the house.
Honestly, by the time I get to the bills being paid, I kinda slack in the taking care of my man (outside of basic needs like food, shelter and sleep) and looking and feeling good about myself. But can you blame me?!?! I feel like I have so much pressure on me on a daily basis. Between going to work and handling everything that needs to be done there, then coming home and cooking, cleaning, washing, catering and having energy to feel good, feels almost impossible sometimes. Mind you, if the female is in school and/or has children, those factors are placed at the top of the list as well and she’s pushed down even farther.
I’m independent and take pride in making my man feel like my king. I can’t say my actions are “up to par” everyday but I know I can deliver and he does too. That’s why he keeps me around 😉
So guys, when you’re complaining about your girl, remember the things I’ve mentioned and if she does the things on this list, cut her some slack. She deserves it. And if she is consistent through her cycle, she deserves jewelry (and a full body message.)
*P.S. If there are men reading this and do the things on my list, you’re a diamond in the rough.
I know some men will read this and think it’s a tall tale. To those men, ask some women in your life if what I’ve written is true and maybe they can help you better understand their struggles as a woman.
