` Never expect someone to respect your feelings because you respect theirs. Never expect someone not to hurt you because you would never hurt them. Thats like sitting in a room full of lions and expecting them not to eat you because you don’t eat lion. .
Sometimes God calms the storm, but sometimes God lets the storm rage and calms his child.
I always find myself caught between saying too much and not saying enough
When people walk away from you, let them go. You shouldn’t have to talk them into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, or coming to see you … For if they really cared about you in the first place, they would not be going anywhere.
You have to learn how to care about people without taking on all of their problems.
~ Phylicia Rashād in The Cosby Show (1987)
It’s tough to get out of bed; I know that myself. You can lie there for an hour and a half without thinking anything, just worrying about what the day holds and knowing that you won’t be able to deal with it.

Friend: why don’t you go out more?
Me: too many black people getting killed accidentally on purpose.
Modern dating is the devil. I don’t know how y’all do it. It’s just a lot of games and sex in between. Ain’t no place in the dating world for an old school mofo like me.
I like dinners and exploration. I like getting to know each other for a reason, not for a time period.
Half the people you meet nowadays don’t know anything besides sex and games.
Sex & Games.
Sex & Games.
Not even gonna go on a rant about my feelings right now… Just gonna continue to let them eat at me..
