Your brain whispers, “You’ll be fine.”
And your heart whispers, “Don’t lie.”
It’s a constant battle between your brain and your heart. Aren’t we suppose to be on the same team?? Yet, they tell us two different things. Different opinions on all our life choices. Love, friends, career, and even family members sometimes! Should this really be a battle?
I’ve contemplated this issue in my head over and over again. I can practically drive myself insane in my own head. I think we all think about the same things, regardless of who we are, our personal preferences, or sexual orientation… WE ARE ALL HUMANS! That’s the wonderful, yet scary thing about love, it is not prejudice.
I am more infatuated with the mind games. And you ALL know exactly what I’m talking about. All those flirty emoji filled text messages, fav tweets and “liked” Instagram photos. No matter how we word it, or how we see it… It is all a form of some sort of mind game. My question is, why? Why do we put ourselves through that. Yes, granted.. As a woman, we need to play a little hard to get. If the challenge becomes too easy, what’s the point of trying right? My mama always told me “A girl worth kissing, shouldn’t be easily kissed.” And I have held that dear to my heart when it comes to a guy I am interested in. Let him take you on a date, enjoy a nice dinner, a movie, or whatever he has planned for you… But what I’ve learned is no matter how great of a girl you could possibly be, you’ll never be good enough for a man who isn’t ready. And that’s where we tend to get caught up and tangled in our emotions. We tend to fall for the ones who aren’t interested in us, and refuse the ones who are. You’ll end up disappointing yourself if you continue to grow up thinking everyone has the same heart as you do. But if you do find someone good enough for you, please hold on to them. And in return, be the best possible person you can be for him/ or her.
As far as I know, the only person I can control is myself. It has taken me a long time to realize that, but better late than never right? I’m focusing on being a good, humble person. Beauty on the inside, shines bright. People tend to notice those things, I promise… Remember that. Give this world good energy, there is enough bad people in this world.
Fill yourself with happiness, fun, laughter, love, friends, friendly strangers and most importantly is family. That’s my little piece of advice to you kids, but please remember… I’m learning too :)
Good things come for those who wait.
Til we meet again
