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.

Nah, sis. You're just being ig'nant!

I can tell most of you have never been to jail. I have more than once. First time I was a teen without a care in the world. Second time, I was a wife and mother of two. My youngest baby was still a newborn.Titty milk was still leaking from my boobs. And while I was in there for less than twenty-four hours the second time, that ish damn near drove me mad. To be away from my kids and not know one way or the other when I was going to be released and to be locked in with women who bragged about stabbing, beating, and hurting other people for fun? The guards didn't give two shits that I was in there for a non-violent offense. They didn't give a sh*t about me wanting to call my husband and check on my kids. They treated my black arse just like they treated the women who were in there for doing mess I will never be wild or crazy enough to do. It was then I realized that while I was willing to throw hands, I was in no way a young woman with nothing to lose anymore. Being away from my…

Almost Doesn't Count: Part 1

Hello, everyone. I know it's been a long time. While I haven't released anything in a year or so (depression is kicking my ass), I am behind the scenes creating. However, until I do release something new, I've decided to release parts of a story I wrote in 2005, long before I became a published author. I'll release a new part, on my website, every week. And it's FREE! Here's the first part:
Isis August 2005...
They say all good things come to an end, and I guess you could just add my relationship to the list. I should have known my relationship with Louis was too good to be true. I met him when I was in court one day the year before. I’d gotten a ticket that I was trying to fight because the cop sexually harassed me before he issued it to me. Then to top that off, he lied and said that I’d solicited him. The shit I had to go through just because of my job description always annoyed me.
I told Louis I didn’t have any money and he assured me that was okay as long as…

New Release: The Promised Land by Nikki-Michelle & Brenda Hampton

One question. What would you do, if you woke up one day and life as you’ve known it changed forever? For Aubrey Evans and Melody Daniels, along with their families, that day has now arrived. Their lives will never be the same, and after believing that silence is golden as it pertains to the biggest sins of America, they will be forced to confront White Supremacy head on and fight for what they once relished as FREEDOM.

Succumbing to hatred and bigotry is not an option for Malcolm Garvey. He’s an activist who has intensely studied the Promised Land; a land that was created by The Masters who are determined to take their country back. By any means necessary they plan to do it, but will the strength of black men and women, along with their efforts to unite, be enough to put an end to the gut-wrenching madness they all endure in the name of hate? No one could’ve predicated it would come to this, not even in their wildest dreams. But when reality kicks in and the truths behi…
