Beginning

I’ve kept a private blog to myself for a little over 6 months now, but today I decided to make a public one. Why not? Whats the worst that can happen, right? Maybe you don’t read my posts? Or worst, don’t like what I have to say? Fuck off if thats the case 🙂

Today I watched something about the difference between empathy and sympathy

This is the difference between me and many people I know. I find it hard to grasp that more people can’t be empathetic towards others, and if they were, I think this world would be a better place. Unfortunately not everyone we meet or get to know proves to be the person you think they are, but thats the beauty of growing up; you learn more about yourself than about others. In the long run, thats one of the grandest gifts you’ll receive in life. I have tough skin, but when it comes to the most sincere form of friendships or acquaintances, I am extremely sensitive. I used to think that everyone has your back and looks out for your best interest, but unfortunately thats not the case. Talk about being the most ultimate naive person ever, huh?

I trust too easily, but I don’t necessarily think thats a bad thing… Actually, let me be more descriptive. When it comes to being a business woman, my trust runs VERY thin, but when it comes to friendships, I trust WAY TOO easily. I’d do anything for the people in my life, absolutely anything. But could I say the same about them? Not sure. I can count on one hand how many best friends I have and I am far beyond okay with that.

Growing up, I always wanted to be apart of the “cool people”, didn’t everyone? You’re lying if you say otherwise. At one point in everyone’s lives, they wanted to be just that. GLAD I’M WELL OVER THAT PHASE! Embracing my own type of cool when I was a junior in high school was the best decision of my life. I literally have had success on my mind since then and that being said, I’m so fortunate – 1. I’m not married at the age of 23, 2. Don’t have any children, 3. Pay all my own bills, 4. Not pregnant (have to be having sex in order for that to happen), 5. Only have to care for my amazing dog, 6. Single (blessing in disguise), 7. I’m perfectly happy with the interior and exterior god gave me (I don’t practice religion, but that sentence really flowed).

Most of all, I’m happy with the life I have and its only getting better.

I’d love for you all to join me on this roller coaster, because a lot of humorous things happen to me daily, too often actually, but also a lot of life lessons happen.
