It Can Be! It Can Also Be Real Self Inflicted

We have all been through something at some point in our lives. My hell may not resemble yours, but it was hell nonetheless. It is my opinion that if one feels in their spirit to speak with someone, about their mental state, they should. That is a very private and at one point taboo. I am also from the old school and have my “old school” thoughts that “We pray”. Sometimes prayer isn’t enough,  or so it seems. What if I need a listening ear and closed mouth? The other side of that coin is, people are not built like they once were. We used to take a lickin an keep on tickin. Now, our lil feelings get hurt and we run to the doc. That doctor prescribe pills for this pills for that, but they are simply life’s spills that can’t truly be repaired by pills. I fully support talking to someone, BUT where and when do we put on our big girl panties and make the lemonade outta the lemons? Depression is a very real and serious beast that must be addressed and dealt with. It is also a spirit that we must defeat! While most of these doctors went to school for a very long time to have the ability to diagnose is, they don’t know our real history and only get our side of the story. Am I depressed because I’m in an emotional/spiritual/mental battle, because I want my way and can’t get it, or because I’ve screwed over so many people now that GOD and his homegirl Karma are having me pay up…I can’t deal? Depression is real, far too real…so is the PTSD that my disabled veteran husband suffers from, BUT where do we try to gain control? Where do we stand? When do we begin to own our part? When do we fight back?

Legacy Left

Leave a legacy of love. So many people are selfish, about money, and so many other things that are honestly insignificant in the grand scheme of life. When you leave the place called earth, will you be surrounded by love, honor, respect, loyalty, grace, mercy, loved ones, peace, and prayer filled tears to JESUS CHRIST? If your answer is unsure or no, you can change your life or keep chasing all that really doesn’t matter. You are not here for you! Stop being selfish, greedy, with the expectation of grace. None of us are perfect! None of us were designed without flaws or promised a perfect life. We are however designed and created to love and uplift one another, to cherish, and honor.

DSC02554-Edit.jpgI can honestly say for myself, I am sick and tired of watching people treat their elders and other supposed loved ones as though they are easily replaced, if called back to GOD. See, here’s the real truth…get ready to get pissed and know that I could care less. You don’t have the right to cry over my casket, hollering, and acting like a fool when you didn’t show me love while I was here trying to love you! You haven’t cared about forgiveness and reconciliation while I was alive, yet you want to apologize to the shell in my casket!?!? You never gave me flowers while I was here,  yet bombarded the room with flowers that wilt, just like you allowed our relationship to wither.

I say again, if you are not living a life that leaves a legacy of love, the greatest gift that you can give or receive, yet never buy…you are merely existing. Wake up and begin to live, because out of all of the promises made to us, the only one for sure is that we all pass. ~GOD is Love and Love is Real~
