Karma and the people who deserve her!

Some of us are so worried about karma or the universe paying us back that we allow people to beat us down to the ground and do nothing. We fail to realize, that sometimes, by defending ourselves, we could very well be the karma they're supposed to get. This doesn't mean you have to answer the phone every time a fight calls, but sometimes...

Sometimes it's okay to fight back. I'd advise you to pick your battles wisely, but do not become anyone's doormat. Fight back. Fight for your right to be seen and treated as human. Sometimes, I treat people exactly the way they treat me. You do know it's possible to fight fire with fire right? Like that is a legit thing. Firefighters will light a larger fire to keep the smaller fire contained within. Sometimes you just have to show your ass to get people to leave you alone. 

I don't advise starting a fight, but by God, sometimes you need to finish that motherfucker and do so in style. STOP allowing people to bully you. STOP allowing toxic people to make you feel like shit for defending yourself after months, and sometimes even years, of their abuse. I made a post about a month ago on this very thing. I am no longer in the business of erasing me to accommodate you. 



I will no longer allow people to say whatever they feel to me because they think I won't, for a lack of better words, clap back. I've had to put loads of people in their places this year alone. I won't bully people, but I will no longer be bullied either.  For me, I used to be so worried that the way I responded to being hurt would cause bad karma if I reacted in a way that some considered negatively. However, I'm over that now. In no way do I think the universe wants us to sit back and be taken advantage of. I do believe the universe wants us to take care of ourselves. Self-love is so very important. 

With that being said, sometimes doing unto others as you would have them do unto you only works when both people have mutual respect for one another. Other times, you have to put a mofo on their behinds.

  1. Your words resonate with and have touched me. I too have taken on the philosophy of treating people as unkindly as they've treated me.

    Though, as you stated, we must pick our fights carefully, I'm done being treated as though I do not matter and bullied as if I were not going to retaliate.

    I will no longer apologize for being a good man nor for happily embracing the new being I've transformed into. No more will I allow others belittle me without expecting from me the proper reaction.

    Thank you,once more,for being my muse.

YOUNG but Grown...Womanish: A Review

So, I finally got a chance to read and finish YOUNGbut Grown Womanish. Out of all the books I’ve read by Mrs. Menchan, the Womanish Series is my all-time favorite. No other author I’ve read has the ability to tell a series of short stories the way she does. The way she starts the stories draw you in instantly and you just have to keep reading to see how it all ends…or in some, cases how it all begins. How she is able to capture the whole essence of a story in just a few pages is something not many can do. No one tells a series of unfortunate—and sometimes fortunate—events like she does.
From Delva Wright and her philandering husband to Damon and his…let’s just say free spirit wife all the way around to A and Fredo and his sister, Sand, I was intrigued and entertained. Nothing tickled me more than the end of the story with Marbra though. She was still too dang giving. LOL! I felt a little sad about Sara and I hope she is doing better wherever she is. I don’t know what to say about Gert…

Ambivalence & No Instructions: A couple of reviews

Okay, so, I know it's been a while since I've done a book review. Hey, a girl has been busy. However, I finally took the time to gobble up two books. I decided to do a little something different this time around so I picked up Ambivalence & No Instructions by Muhjahid Qahhar. I'm quite glad I did. Both books were well written and kept my attention from start to finish.


So I'm going to kind of give two reviews in one. Book one, Ambivalence introduces us to Tenaka, who has just been released from a long government funded vacation, aka prison. Tenaka has a friend, and I use "friend" lightly, Twan, who seems to be a cool guy, right? LOL! He's a good guy...the same way Chucky was in the movie Child's Play. Draw your own conclusions here.


The one thing that drew me in to Tenaka as a character was his unwillingness to see young black women in peril and do nothing about it. I knew from that moment on, Tenaka would be a favorite character of mine. Fast for…
