We are all just the sum of our stories. Some stories last longer. Holding onto our stories, pictures, memories, experiences, this is what describes us, defines us, and memorializes us. Let me preface this by mentioning I have not, will not, nor have any desire to read the raunch which is 50 Shades of Grey. From what i gather the book is written with the 2nd grade literature skill of ‘see spot run’ and entirely researched with the use of Wikipedia and Google. Poor woman, short of authentic exciting sexual experience. :/ That being said, another set of books came out a couple years ago called Diary of a Call Girl, by a legit London lady escort. Showtime attempted to … Read More


Unconditional Love

BrockaRelationshipsLeave a Comment

I think this term is an oxymoron. Because humans are fallible, there will always be conditions. It just might take extreme conditions to test the case, but still. Romantic love can be tainted with jealousy and insecurity. I believe the closest we come to feeling unconditional love is from our parents. One person that knows every last nitty gritty and distasteful thing about my self is my mother; and she loves me all the same, forever, unconditionally. When I was in Europe back in June, I noticed a theme of mother-daughter sets. I snapped a few fun pics when I was able.  God Bless them. [nggallery id=13]

When we meet someone for the first time, we immediately ask what they do for a living. We have been conditioned to do so. Since we spend the majority of our hours in a day doing work, it makes perfect sense. Rarely what we do describes a large chunk of our character though, or even an insight into our personality traits. Sometimes it might, like if a person works for a non-profit replacing female vets into the workforce; we may presume this person has a good character. But other times, even if what we are doing is something we are really passionate about, it is only one layer of our self. On social networks, we can express only what we … Read More

I have always believed jealousy to be lack of confidence. It is either lack of confidence in the relationship or lack of confidence in the direction of our own life. We need confirmation from our romantic partner in order to feel secure about where we stand with them. When being jealous of other’s lives, their success or their objects, we are feeling insecure about our own direction and/or uncertain that it will lead us to our own success; or simply unsatisfied with where we are. Thank goodness I have never been bugged with the ‘jealousy’ characteristic. In a relationship, my thought has been, if the person I’m dating simultaneously wants someone else, they need to go on and not waste … Read More


To Feel and To Know…

Love is a verb. It is the behavior in the relationship. Love is the sacrifice and the compromise. Lust and infatuation are the emotions from the chemicals at the beginning of the dating process. I don’t mean to sound so unromantic about the process, but I do mean to express maturity about what it takes to sustain a relationship. And any adult that has experienced a longterm relationship understands this reality. In truth, we would all like for the ‘lusting after’ and being in love part to run the entire course of the relationship too. Why do we pursue dating without the promise or guarantee of love? Because we are selfish. This is the truth. The act of courting is … Read More
