(You Brought Out) The Worst In Me

Having a mate or significant other can be delightful. You support one another, set goals and encourage one another to do better in all areas of your life. However, the relationship can be dreadful if it is with the wrong individual. 

Sometimes someone else's situation reminds of something I have gone through and sometimes I place myself in their shoes to see things from their perspective. The R&B singer Tyrese has a song called "Best of Me", I decided to write my version titled "(You Brought Out)The Worst In Me".

What a task it was to be loved by you
Suppose to be my best friend, but that was not true
You said everything you could to break me down
But did whatever it took to keep me around baby

It felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders
Because of your conditional love baby that's why
You brought out the worst in me, every day I was so angry
And if I had to do it again, I would not choose to boy
You brought out the worst in me, cause you were not right for me

You tried to ruin my life, every day and every night boy I cried
There were times when I felt unsure and my judgment was obscured
and with you by my side I was an unhappy girl Hey yeah

It felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders
Because of your conditional love baby that's why
You brought out the worst in me, every day I was so angry
And if I had to do it again, I would not choose to boy
You brought out the worst in me, cause you were not right for me

I want you to know it's not the end of my world, I did all I could
I did my best as your girl
So I stand up and shout to the world
He's the worst, He's the worst

So I moved on with my life and I'm doing fine I look to the sky it was God, God
Cause he gave peace of mind, mind
God is the best,  God is the best but

You brought out the worst in me, every day I was so angry
And if I had to do it again, I would not choose to boy
You brought out the worst in me, cause you were not right for me

You brought out the worst in me, every day I was so angry
And if I had to do it again, I would not choose you boy

You brought out the worst in me, cause you were not right for me
                                                         

Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. Never let anyone take away your happiness. YOU determine how someone will treat you. People will only do to you what you allow. When you are going through something,  Push Until Something Happens (PRAY) and ask God for guidance. He will always be there and he will see you through.

I hope this helps someone!!!!

Who Do You Identify With In The Sea Of Life?

While attending Medgar Evers College , I was introduced to the worlds renowned author  Ms. Iyanla Vanzant . My public speaking professor began each class with a daily meditation from Acts of Faith which was authored by Ms. Vanzant. Eventually, I purchased this book and a few others. Years later, I continue to read the Acts of Faith. Photo Credit: RaisingBrownGirls While sitting at my desk, I turned to today's meditation and my eyes made it's way to the bottom of the page. The message stated "I know who I am in the sea of life." After reading it, I reversed it and asked myself two questions. "Do you know who you are in the sea of life?" "Who do you identify with in the sea of life?" My eyes scrolled back to the top of the page and I began to read today's daily meditation. As I am reading, I realize I have encountered almost every fish that was mentioned. This made me think about the people I have crossed paths with in the past,

A Rainbow of My Own

While sitting in the middle of my bed after waking up for the second time today, guess what I saw on my bedroom wall? A rainbow. Before you ask, no there was nothing in my window and there was nothing on my television stand that allowed any sort of reflection. I was baffled and amazed. Yet I continued to stare at it until it faded. I believe it was God's way of getting my attention. His way of communicating and relaying his message to me. There have been days when life seems to get the best of me. I have so much on my mind. It seems as though it is constantly racing. It never slows down or stop. As a result, I often have sleepless nights. There have been times when I wanted to give up which was the easiest thing to do. However, I know that quitting is never an option and not the example I want to set for my two brown girls. I know it is only because of God's grace that my strength grows and I can move forward. I often pray and talk to God. However, I have been prayin

She Did It Without Him

For the past two weeks, Nyasia has been preparing for this day. She had practice every day after school from 6pm -7:30pm and two Super Saturday rehearsals from 9am-1pm. This rehearsal includes the marching band and her dance mates who only attend the performing arts program after school and on Saturdays. During this rehearsal, the entire performing arts program and the band practice the routine together. Today is the day. It is one of the most important days of her life. Nyasia spent all her time rehearsing afterschool and out home. She along with her bandmates from The Brooklyn United Marching Band (BU) performed at the Nets vs Knicks halftime show. This was her first time performing at such a large venue. She was excited and scared at the same time. I was thrilled to be there to support her and provide her words of encouragement and comfort during our commute to the venue.  The call time was at 11:30am. I awoke at 7:30am to prepare myself. At 8:30am I begin preparing, chec
