Most men know how to survive and how to provide. The streets probably raised them rather than a father figure at home. So who teaches them how to love a woman and be loyal to her if they’ve never seen it?  Who teaches them it’s ok to have a soft side for your lady? Who teaches them how to get her and then KEEP her? Here’s some advice…  What you did to get me, you

A Brown Person

A child is asking me “why are you brown?”  A child is telling me I look weird because I’m brown. Why are you keeping them in a box? Closed off from diversity? Because then I’m seen as something that doesn’t belong. I’m seen as something that just randomly walked the earth when your whole family sit at the restaurant and stare at me in disbelief. I feel so uncomfortable. For the life of me, I

What Sex Did

Mentally I was gone from him, but physically I was still there. He had my body, my mind, my heart, my soul. I was thinking with my heart, which guides everything. I was thinking with love, which can blind you from what truly is. It was beyond “sex”. It was intimacy. It was soul ties. I made decisions based on this soul tie. It was forgiving when I shouldn’t have. It was dealing when I

I remember the days I couldn’t wait for you to leave your phone unattended. I remember waking up at 5am pretending my phone wasn’t working. Woke you up out your sleep for you to unlock yours so I can use it. My excuse was I needed to make a call. Who was I calling at 5am? Truth is, I needed proof of everything I thought was happening. I needed to see it for myself. But

I needed a cleanse. I had to wash away the small talk. I had to wash away the sexual relations with no commitment. I had to wash away the open friendship. I had to wash away the memories that kept me hoping we could make more. I had to wash away the idea of settling just to be happy with comfort. I had to wash away everything that we promised. I had to be real

And sometimes I just marinate in my feelings. Lay in my emotions and drown in my tears. It’s hard to put into words because you never talk about it. How can I heal when I never explain this pain that I feel? I keep putting it in the back of my mind, fighting it. This mental, internal battle I’m dealing with. You can’t see the emptiness. You see what I show you. I smile but

People actually ask me if I’m crazy because I’m single. No I’m not “crazy”. Although we all have a little crazy in us. Truth is, I just know what I want. And even though I know what I want, sometimes I don’t want it right now.  I’m not always looking for a relationship and I’ve never been the one that felt like I need to be in one.  I need to get this money, I

You set the manual. You write the how-to.  You set the foundation of you.  Because if you don’t, someone will create their own guidelines to love you.  If you don’t carry yourself with confidence, and full of self-love, someone will come in and pour into you what they want to.  They begin to teach you what you THINK is love. What you THINK is a relationship. What you THINK you should deal with.  Don’t forget

I wonder what you see when you look at me? You see the 20’s me, but you don’t know all of me. You see the college degree but you don’t know all of me. We came from the South Side of Chicago, Jefferey Manor. We didn’t have everything but we had what we needed so it didn’t matter. It was times we had to put the water in a big bucket, put it in the

And here’s to me addressing the flaws I had and what I’ve learned.. If you’re gonna date older, act older. You can’t have a childish, petty mindset. Leave room for mistakes. Leave room for growth. Leave room for him to miss you. Too much of something gets old, quick. Give him time to call you or text you. Do not judge him based off his friends. Trust him until he gives you a reason not
