Owning her own business at the early age of 22 and holding steady for 15 years, her siblings considered her a hustler. She was always thinking ahead, envisioning her next money-making move. But after her divorce, she became a prostitute for cocaine, in a relationship. Her past was her pimp for years. She was trapped in the basement of desperation and degradation as others still are. She sold herself! She sold herself to trashy relationships and trashy love affairs- looking for one small seed of love and affection to water.
She made everyone think, or she thought she did that she had everything under control – especially after the divorce. Stuck in what she calls “marry mode.” You see, she’s mentally stuck in the mode of being married when it came to being with a man—literally treating him as if he were her husband—wanting the love of a man in flesh who was finically and most of all mentally a mere boy.
In today’s society, the love of a man is way overrated. I believe this truth because men claim to be faithful to their wives, girlfriends, or significant others. All too often, when the truth is blurred, perception becomes a reality, and then all is lost. She wished she would have listened to her conscience when it told her, “He’s lying!”
Listen up! Your conscience speaks to you. Fighting it will lead you to make decisions that will cause much disappointment and pain. So love YOU enough to say NO to the men you know will misguide you and are no good for you. It’s your decision to hold his truths to a higher standard. Expecting more for and of yourself isn’t too much to ask.
