My alone feels so good, I’ll only have you if you’re sweeter than my solitude.

THE PROS AND CONS OF NATURAL HAIR

I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages (because how reckless can a form of digitized communication be?) and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, “Kiss me harder,” and “You’re a good person,” and, “You brighten my day.” I live my life as straight-forward as possible.

Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.

Maybe it’s weird. Maybe it’s scary. Maybe it seems downright impossible to just be—to just let people know you want them, need them, feel like, in this very moment, you will die if you do not see them, hold them, touch them in some way whether its your feet on their thighs on the couch or your tongue in their mouth or your heart in their hands.

But there is nothing more beautiful than being desperate.

And there is nothing more risky than pretending not to care.

We are young and we are human and we are beautiful and we are not as in control as we think we are. We never know who needs us back. We never know the magic that can arise between ourselves and other humans.

We never know when the bus is coming.

Important encounters are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other.

This is Jazmine Sullivan when she was 11… ELEVEN!

We got poor souls living their lives and not liking her because they dont like her voice

I was really upset when she decided to leave the music industry, but I understand why she did. It’s downright criminal that such a vocal powerhouse is given such shitty material & shitty promotion. Maybe it’s a sign of my age, but these lil new “artists” ain’t shit but glorified karaoke queens compared to this. 

wow perfection

11?!??! DAMNN! Amazing!

She left music completely? Wow. This was def amazing

Everyone needs to watch this. Starting at 2:00.

WHAT?!?!?!?!?!

Unfortunately, the people who are supposed to love us aren’t always able to give us the kind of love we need. Whether they are our mothers or our fathers, our grandparents or our siblings, some family, no matter how good their intentions, leave us feeling empty, invalidated, uncared for, and alone. And on the days when that pain becomes too much to bear, our work is to recognize that those people whose love we so desperately pine for are never going to be able to meet our needs. Not because they don’t care, but because they can’t change who they are.

Their scant affection isn’t a reflection on our worth. It isn’t even about us. It’s about them and their own limitations and struggles. It’s about their unique way of expressing love and the fact that it doesn’t match up with our own. And we don’t have to internalize that. What we need is to start reaching out to the right people. We need to create a family of people outside of our family. People who can meet our needs and reciprocate our love.

We need to appreciate our families for the ways in which they are able to show they care, and be accepting of the ways they can’t. We need to make peace with who they are and if necessary, we need to give ourselves permission to let go. We need to know that our worth isn’t something another person’s love can give or take away. We need to trust that with or without their affection, we are enough.

My existence was not random, nor was it an accident. God knew who He was creating, and He designed me for a specific work.
