Real Talk Tuesday: Accepting What Others Have To Give
This is where I'm from and I'll never forget it.
If I ever accepted what people "just" wanted to give me, I'd still be back in the hood and never woulda left my foster home.
I overcame alot just to live a "normal" life...I was 21 years old when I realized it's not normal to know so many people that have been killed...or know so many killers. I'm determined to be more than "normal" now...so there's no way in hell am I ever gonna accept what other people think I should "just" get. If that makes me a "Diva", then so be it. I'm determined, focused, ambitious and confident. Fuck what you think or want for me. I know what I want, I know were I came from and I know where I wanna be.
I'm doing this for the kids back in Falstaff who were just like me, hungry, trying to stay out of trouble, hoping for a shot and wanting better for their lives, I wanna show them that if I did it, they can too.
Don't EVER let people tell you what you can or can't do, what you are or aren't capable of. Believe in yourself and work hard at it. You will fail, but you'll also win and at the end of the day, it's the winning that matters! it's YOUR life. Not theirs. Act accordingly.
