Turning Pain into Power!

It's hard enough being broken and trying to bring back the pieces together. You didn't see it coming, you were not prepared. Honestly, nobody is, even when we lie to ourselves that we knew it would happen the pain is still the same. Whenever we give love we always expect it to be reciprocated. And... Continue Reading →

Stay in Your Lane

According to the Urban Dictionary, slay queens are ‘young and naive girls who apparently do not date broke men’. I care less about naivety, what takes my attention is ‘do not date broke men’.

It’s Not Me, It’s You

God & ManNo, it’s not me. That’s not the reason why I can’t be with you anymore. It’s not me, it’s you. It’s your inability to be there when I need you, not once or twice, but every single time, it’s your inability to make decisions where you definitively choose me. It’s your incapacity to… via...
