To say that this past week has rocked my world would be a vast understatement.

I received a phone call from someone I’ve adored, respected, & admired my entire life that turned into something I NEVER thought would happen. It was HELLACIOUS…to say the least.

At first, I was simply confused. But the more time I’ve had to sit here with this phone call repeating in my head, the worse things get. I see things clearer & clearer with every passing hour.

I was GREATLY disrespected. I was accused of falsehoods. I was belittled. I was laughed at. I was yelled at.

I had to speak to this person in a way I NEVER in a million years thought I’d ever do.

No one is responsible for my actions but myself. No one will yell at me like a child, NO ONE. I’m grown. No one will laugh at me while I’m in tears & think it’s okay.

And don’t EVER come at me thinking you’re gong to fight another person’s battle. All that came from that was me losing respect for both people involved & now, I don’t have a problem with just one person. I have problems with multiple people.

I won’t be broken down. I won’t be bullied. I’ll say goodbye forever before that happens.

There’s no coming back from the things I heard & the horrendous effects that situation took on my body.

Trust this though, it will NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN. You thought you could break me down but I’m rising like the skyscrapers.

From My Front Porch

Standard

I’ll always wonder about “what could have been.” I’m human.

I wonder what would’ve happened had I accepted that scholarship to the NY Film Academy. I wonder what things would be like if I’d moved to California.

But when I see where I’m at, here on my front porch, I wouldn’t change this for ANYTHING.
