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.

New Movie Review: Deuces

So I watched Deuces last night. It's a new movie starring Larenz Tate, Lance Gross and Meagan Goode. The premise of the story is damn near like every one of those hood novels that are so popular on Amazon these days. If you've read any novel considered hood or urban lit, then you've seen this movie already. And just like some of the hood/urban lit novels, the movie had a few issues. That didn't take away from the fact I kinda enjoyed the jawn. The story goes a little something like this: Man is a drug dealer. Man wants to go legit. Man meets girl. Girl falls in love with man. A new dude comes into the crew. It shakes up crazy and before you know it, the shit done hit the fan. I give the movie a solid three-stars and that's only because it was good to see Larenz Tate on the screen again. However, some of the acting left a lot to be desired. Still, if you got nothing to do on a late night, I'd recommend it.

Deleted scene from Bi-Sensual: Unedited/Update on David, Summer, and Michael

“I can’t believe you’ve been in Atlanta this long and didn’t tell me,” Summer said. I smiled at her. Summer was a good friend of mine. We’d met long ago, back in college when I was just a timid shy girl who jumped at her own shadow. She still looked the same minus a few extra pounds from baby weight. She was pregnant with one child while another was on her hip. The little boy was a beautiful specimen of a child. However, his honey golden eyes told me whose child he was. Summer’s life had given me the background story to my last NYT best seller. She told me the story of her and her husband, who was bisexual, and his friend, Michael. The writer in me went wild. Of course I asked her if I could write about it. She told me I could, but by God, she had never told me Michael had fathered her child. My eyes were as wide as saucers. “Are you and David still together?” I asked. “Yeah, why do you ask me that?” I made no bones about looking directly at the child on her hip. “He looks like Micha…

Naughtier Than Nice: A Review

This is another stop on a new slate of reviews I'll be posting on Nikki-Michelle's Spot. Before I ever had dreams of becoming a writer, I was a reader. That hasn't changed. I love to read. A good book can always take me away like Calgon.  Next up, Naughtier Than Nice by Eric Jerome Dickey. I should note that this book is NOT on Kindle Unlimited. As a reader, I'm a fan of Kindle Unlimited. If you're a reader looking to test a new author, KU is a good investment, especially in this market of....eh, that's a story for a different day. Back to Naughtier Than Nice.

Man, whew. I've waited so long for EJD to get back to this style of writing. Now don't get me wrong I love Gideon and  the chick from A Wanted Woman, but I longed for the day EJD would get back to the Cheaters and Liar's Game style of writing. Once I read One Night earlier this year, I knew I was going to get Naughtier Than Nice. First off, let me say it did my heart some good to get an update…
