Be careful...


I am not afraid or embarrassed to admit that I am the type of woman that cries when I read good book. I will low-key get in my feelings, especially if somebody dies. I have been reading A LOT lately and a book that I finished reading on this weekend was about a woman that fell in love with the wrong man. Now, when I say wrong, I mean WRONG WRONG, like he couldn't handle her leaving him due to him being physically abusive type of wrong, so he killed her and her new man and their unborn child. (Yes I cried!)

It made me think how dangerous and essentially deadly it is to love the wrong person. In the book, all of what she went through could have been avoided if she would have listened to her intuition (God) and walked away but she kept giving him chances and he repaid her by taking her life.

Sometimes loving the wrong person isn't 'that deep' but sometimes it truly is. I have never been in a physically abusive relationship (Thank God!), but I have been in two emotionally abusive relationships and in both I was able to realize the verbal abuse and see "Okay, it is only a matter of time before he jumps stupid and tries to put his hands on me. So let me go ahead an go." One guy cheated on me and would curse me out to the point that I would end up apologizing to him. I don't understand the hold that he had on me but I do know that he was the wrong person and that if I would have stayed in that relationship, it would have gotten physical and one of us would have been dead and the other in jail. (Mama ain't raise no punk and I know how to cook grits!)

If a man isn't treating you right, there's nothing wrong with you, there's something wrong with him. Be careful what you overlook because a lot of times he's trying to see what he can get away with. Love yourself enough to know what you will and what you won't do for love.
