Writing is not a talent; it's a gift. My stories are transparent. Not fact, not fiction. They are in a category to themselves.
You never know what to expect.
Selfless vs. Selfish
The world has become a money-racket. What happened to brotherly and sisterly love? I’ll tell you. It went out the window. Some people only do something because they expect something in return. They don’t tell you that until after they have done what you asked them to do. It’s sad that everything has become about money.
Stop Pointing Fingers: You Have A Past Too
As a spiritual person, I think that people have the wrong idea of religion. People make you think you have to practically be perfect. What kills me is how people try to brow beat you with the bible. They call out scripture after scripture, condemn you to hell, everything they can think of. But you know the funny thing? They forget that they were once a sinner, or out in the world as I call it.
My Definition of Friendship
They say that you can count the number of friends that you have on your hands. Some of us have confided in people that we considered friends and we just knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that we had nothing to worry about because we thought they were our friends, not knowing that these same people were the main ones telling the entire world everything that we had told them. Unfortunately, most of us learned that the hard way.
Hiding Behind A Mask
Life is supposed to be full of surprises. New experiences. But nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to people. Some people are so hypocritical. The very thing that they are judging someone for is the same thing that they have done in the past or may even be doing right now. What do I mean? I’ll tell you. You have people that put on this mask as I call it. They put on a mask (hiding the real them) and then take it off (being who they really are).
These days you can’t take things at face value. A person can say something to you, and you may take offense to it at the time. But take a moment to think about it. What did they really mean when they said it? Sounds stupid, I know. But I call it re-evaluation.
In Loving Memory: Losing A Loved One
Losing a loved one is difficult. People say, “just get over it” or “you need to move on”. That is easy to say when you are not the person dealing with the situation. There is no just get over it or you need to move on because the person that we cherished is gone. We have memories, good or bad but we do not just bounce back like that.
Relationships: My Point of View
A true relationship is full of happiness. Spontaneous and exciting. Pure love. But people get love and lust confused. Love is when you are strongly and emotionally attached to this person. You love everything about them. All you can think about is being with them. You get worried if they get sick and if something happens, you heart almost jumps out of your chest. You are concerned about this person and their well-being; the feeling is mutual.
The Way We Think: Common Idioms We Use
We have powerful thoughts. Sometimes, when we get mad, we start thinking about phrases that we have heard before and we may yell them out, post them on social media, however we need to express those thoughts. But most of the time, the thoughts we have are usually sayings that we have heard and have stored in our memories. Self-expression is important. There are many proverbs and idioms as they are called but I’ll name the important ones.
The Absence Of Love In The World
Back in moma’s day, there was so much love. Everybody could eat at each other’s house. Everybody knew each other’s family. If a fight broke out, you would fight and make up in a few minutes time. Children respected their parents, they knew not to be in grown folk’s conversation and the “look”, meaning if moma gave u a certain look, you knew to get somewhere and sit down, meant something.
Who am I? Weird question, right? But who we are is what is defined by the decisions we make, our attitudes, our daily routines, and the decisions we make and have made. Identity is not necessarily the color of your skin or your age or even how you look. It is all about the way you feel about yourself. Some people forget who they are and are not true to themselves.
