STOP TRIPPING

Hey!  I see your picture or maybe your status update on Facebook. I seem to like it, so I click the ‘like’ button. Next thing, you’re all over my inbox saying things like how we are meant for each other. Please!

I laugh at your joke, because it’s funny. Next thing, you call me ‘baby’.
I compliment your shirt, because it’s fancy. Next thing, you assume I’ve got the hots for you.
Okay, so maybe I call you ‘bae’, every now and then. Next thing, you begin to act like we are dating. Come on, it is never this serious.

I retweet your tweets, and sometimes mention you on twitter. Next thing, you assume I’m crushing on you. Oh, Lord! I like all your pictures on instagram. Most times, not because I actually like them, but because I need you to return the favour. Don’t assume I’m tripping!
I decide to look all shades of good to step out of my house to come meet you. I’m not ‘packaging’ myself to look good for you. I just love to look good. Looking good is good businessinnit?
I talk the way I talk, not to impress you, but because I love the way my voice sounds that way. Your problem?

 

I catwalk and it’s not because I want your attention. I DO NOT need that. That’s how I am, how I’ve always been. You don’t like it? Look elsewhere. Has it occurred to you that maybe I sing all the time, because I love to? Not because I want you to appreciate my voice. Does your liking my voice pay my bills?!
These may be all bitchy, but right now, I do not care. I don’t need anybody’s judgment (the world is filled with judgmental beings). The other day, I shared a post and someone deemed it okay to rate my write-up. I do not write for ratings, please. I write because it is one way I know how to express myself, because I LOVE to write. I do not seek validation from anybody. Do not read meanings to everything I do; every deliberate act and every not-so-deliberate act.
Dear readers, do your thing. Do not let anyone’s perception of you, stop you from being you.
By all means, DO YOU! 
You’ve got one life…..
LIVE IT!
There's love in sharing ♥. Please share this with your friends. ☺
