A letter to our ex

I chose to call this post a letter to OUR ex because most of the things I'm going to say is what we ALL should really feel.

Don't spend your time mad at your ex because he or she cheated, lied, betrayed you, pushed you away etc etc. spend your time being grateful. Be glad that he or she is NOW your ex. Be glad you are no longer in the relationship alone. Be glad you aren't being lied to anymore. Be glad you don't have to wonder if he or she is cheating on you or not.

So to our ex. Thank you, thank you for Your lies which have caught up to you and the saying what is done in the dark comes to light well there is a bright light on you right now. Thank you for disrespecting me and our relationship when you did it. Because if you would have done it further down the road my heart wouldn't say thank you. My mind wouldn't be right because of the amount of alcohol I would have to erase the thoughts of you hurting me. Thank you for no longer loving me anymore. Even though it will take me a while to stop loving you.

Thank you for pushing me away you gave me a sign that the relationship was over. But I just knew our love would last forever because that's what you told me. Once again thanks for lying. But with your lies I can start over and try again. Try love again with a BETTER person that is. Because what we had is over. So when you start missing me just think was it worth it. To me it was because I'll be getting what I deserve and that's someone better. I'll be getting the love you decided to stop giving me from someone who knows how to appreciate me.

Don't be bitter guys be grateful. Love is a beautiful thing that people take for granted.

Do you really want to be black or Hispanic?

Usually I don't care about the kardashins or their family or any reality stars but when Kylie basically said she wants to be black I just felt like I needed to add my two cents.

I have no problem being black I love it! It's what God wanted me to be a strong African American woman. When people ask me if I'm mixed I say no not because I am ashamed of my roots that's not the case at all. I love my Japanese roots, my great grandma was the most welcoming lady ever, every time I would visit she had the biggest smile with her arms open ready for a hug. So I'm not ashamed. I'm more ashamed that I fall in the category of a stuck up mixed chick because of my complexion. Yes I do look angry a lot but let me tell you I'm almost always bubbly just have a conversation with me before you judge me. But it's something about being an African American woman that makes me happy. I guess it's the strength that comes with being black.

But to ms. Jenner and other white women that want to be black or Hispanic may I please tell you why you don't want to be an ethnic woman? 

1. As an ethnic female you have two strikes against you, you are a female and your race. So you have to work EXTREMELY harder then others to get ahead in life. 
2. Do you want to be turn away from scholarships, jobs, certain social settings because of your skin?
3. Do you want people to talk to you like you are beneath them?
4. Do you want people to look at you like you are crazy when you speak of brand name things, (and pronounce them correctly) like people of other races don't know that red bottoms are really called Christian louboutin. Some of us do know.
5. Do you want to NOT get recognized for something but watch a white woman get praised for the exact thing you did?

I would be up all night trying to explain to you why you don't want to be ethnic, why ethnic people get upset when you say that you want to be ethnic even if you don't flat out say it. 

There is nothing wrong with being ethnic. Yes we do have to face racism. Yes it does hurt. Yes it does get frustrating. 
But there is nothing more beautiful then my black beauty. I go to sleep black I wake up black, so I'm always in a category. "Loud mouth stuck up chick that is looking for a handout." But really I'm just working hard to become a psychologist not for the government to help me. 
Be happy with who you are on the inside and out. You are beautiful no matter what your race or complexion is. 

Feel free to leave comments.

Cover girl queen collection natural hue

I got the color classic bronze (Q710)
I don't like this foundation as of right now. I am in desperate need of a foundation that has good coverage due to my acne scars. 
This is not the foundation if you are looking for a foundation with good coverage. 

BUT if you are looking for a foundation that's light and doesn't cake up this is great! It doesn't make you look like a Oompa Loompa (winning)

If the foundation had great coverage then I would LOVE it but I do recommend it if you are someone that likes the "makeup no makeup look" whatever they are calling it. 

Well thanks for visiting have a great day beauties :)
