The moment you realize just about every man in your life has let you down
The moment you realize people you’ve trusted became another misjudgment
The moment you realize your kindness is not usually reciprocated
The moment you realize your hard work is not appreciated
The moment you realize being YOU is not always accepted
The moment you realize your adoration falls on deaf ears
The moment you realize your pain is so deep you can’t face it alone
The moment you realize how you feel doesn’t really matter
The moment you grow tired of fighting…
Remember to place your faith and determination to help other inward. Pick yourself up and take just a little time to lick your wounds.
Revive yourself, create a new path and allow people who deserve your kindness, loyalty and thoughtfulness to travel the new path with you.
I’ve been a victim of abuse yet I don’t have any ill feeling towards this young man
I see him and I smile; I just don’t feel like he is the monster that many believe him to be
He is inspirational and his courage makes me believe my dreams will come true
His dedication, his soul-stirring words have captured me
He has given me the courage I need to be the true Lioness I was born to be
is a big part of living your life completely
The more people try to condemn him, the more blessings he will receive
did not create us to judge others; rather his hope is for us to uplift and encourage each other
, 50 Cents; I’ve never been a fan but because you have defended this awesome young man, I will return your support
this young man as he has paid dearly for his mistakes
Let him move on and continue to create GREAT music and art for us to enjoy.
P.S. Chris…you must truly forgive yourself and let it go once and for all. Release the demons and allow peace to settle inside of your soul.

Unlike most lists, my lists are in alphabetical order only! This is not a gossipy, trashy, tear folks down blog site. My blog is all about uplifting and giving credit to people who grind hard and keep my ears happy! J
