I forgive you

To everyone that’s wronged me even when I was right to them, I forgive you. Even if you aren’t sorry. My heart is happy, regardless. I wish you well and I pray karma doesn’t do too much damage to you even though you deserve whatever comes your way.

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence. Those who lack it see it as an oxymoron. Maybe a lot of men haven’t been taught how to practice emotional intelligence. But caring for others should make you curious to learn. If how another person feels, perceives your actions, expresses themselves, etc. Never crosses your mind, you don’t care about them. It’s not up to a grown woman to teach you, a grown man, how to be a considerate human being. Unless she’s a mother figure to you. And a mother figure is just that. Don’t impose that role on a friend or significant other. Do your own work yourself and come back when you are able and willing to meet someone halfway. Otherwise, care enough to let it go. But I guess being perceptive enough to assess yourself and take those steps requires a degree of emotional intelligence. It’s emotionally and sometimes physically draining to do the thinking for two people. It’s an undue burden but so many men expect it.

Happy International Women’s Day.

To the beautiful women of the world:

Your nature is god‘s gift. You are powerful because you give without receipts. A backbone to a spineless society. You are a force—nothing moves without you. Innovators/healers/hustlers. More than your power to endure, we celebrate your healing.

Vulnerability is a must..

Love requires vulnerability. You truly have to give the other person the ability to hurt you IF you want to connect with them on a level beyond the superficial. The only thing you can do is work on your discernment and curate a list of deal-breakers to lessen your chances of getting burned. But ultimately you have to be vulnerable. Heartbreak is ultimately inevitable though, and wolves in sheep’s clothing are everywhere. This is life.
