I may have screwed up as a girlfriend, wife, mother, sister and sometimes as a daughter or as a friend, because I don't always say or do the "right things". I h...ave a smart mouth, I have secrets, I have scars because I have a history. Some people love me, some like me, and some people don't feel either way. I have done good in my life. I have done bad in my life. I don't wear makeup, and
sometimes skip shaving my legs. I don't get dressed up very often. I am random and I am silly. I will not pretend to be someone I am not. I am who I am, you can love me or not. But if I love you, I will do it with my whole heart, and I will make no apologies for the way I am. I AM ME!!!
Ladies, I dare you to put this on your status, with a picture of yourself, If you’re proud to be who you are.
HEARTBREAKING. "Please be vigilant and be careful. I know you want your power on, if you’re staying in the flooding, and even though it might be a voluntary evacuation, but it may cost someone else’s life..."
I just woke up from a nap having the worst nightmare ever in my life...
I dream we had gotten an emergency evacuation advice for our apartment complex and the o...ther ones next to us as well. And Charlie and I was helping get the kids out first. We rescued a first group of kids and got them in a bus but when we got back to the 2nd group of kids the water had gotten so high so quick and the kids had drowned... I just kept seeing their little lifeless faces
A lot of people around the country don't understand Houston. When we say we live in "Houston", what we're really saying is that we live in Seabrook, League City..., Dickinson, LaMarque, Deer Park, La Porte, Friendswood, Missouri City, Sienna Plantation, Humble, Pasadena, Texas City, Baytown, Sugarland, Santa Fe, Alvin, South Houston, Pearland, Manvel, Richmond Rosenberg, RoSharon, Galena Park, Atascocita, Kingwood, Klein, Belaire, Montrose, the Heights, Cypress, Lake Houston, San Jacinto, Tomball, Spring, the Woodlands, Katy, inside the loop, outside the loop, the belt, etc etc. it's just easier to say "Houston" when people ask. A distance of 89+ miles separates Texas City and Conroe. Houston is known as the Medical Capital of the world, the Space Capital of the world, the Energy Capital of the world, has one of the biggest ports in the world.
For us traveling distances is not an unusual task. Some Drive 1+ hr just to get to work, this is not unheard of (without traffic). Houston is a city of cities.
So when we say HOUSTON is under water. We mean that the ENTIRE area has flooded in some way. Most have water in their houses. 100's of thousands have had to evacuate or be rescued from their neighborhoods. When one part of our city has a problem, we ALL have a problem. And when ALL of our city has a problem, we cry. We pray. We HELP.
Nights are the scariest because you don't know what you're going to wake up to in the morning. It has stopped raining and now we have flooding. There are still people waiting to get rescued; old people, young people, children, babies, pets, rich people, poor people, all ethnicities from all walks of life. All humans. Please pray, Please pray for a brighter future for ALL of Houston today, because Houston Had A Problem. ❤️❤️❤️
**Copy and paste for your friends and family!!!
From 2016 (Not sure how many women this still applies to but...)
If your man is acting up, staying out late, not texting (or answering calls), cheating, taking ...you for granted, etc. Let me tell you what will NOT work. (Pay special attention to #4. It's the one you ladies are MOST guilty of.)
1) Asking him to do better.
2) Trying to be a better gf.
3) Asking WHY he's this way.
And NUMBER FOUR...
Stop trying to REMIND him of how much you've DONE for him. PLEASE. No more telling him how you "don't deserve this." No more telling him how he's HURT you, or telling him what his responsibilities are. STOP DOING THAT! What ever happened to holding a man ACCOUNTABLE for his actions? What ever happened to giving the nigga CONSEQUENCES when he keeps fucking up, instead of doing MORE for him, or begging him to stop?
You spend more time trying to make him feel SORRY for you, than you do trying to make him RESPECT you. If a dude doesn't respect you, he'll NEVER act right for you. You're over there WHINING asking how he could DO this to you. Almost PLEADING for him to see what he's done wrong and FIX it. WHAT FOR?? Are you looking for him to take PITY on you, and shape UP? That's pathetic!
The nigga's not STUPID. He KNOWS what you've put up with, because it was HIS BULLSHIT! He knows what you've done for him, because HE BENEFITED. You don't have to remind him. CLEARLY, that shit doesn't work. You can't GUILT a man into being a better boyfriend. (And if you CAN, ask yourself why you HAD to?) Once he knows there will be no major repercussions for his actions (even after the 90th time), he will do whatever he wants. Arguing with him or threatening to leave him will do NOTHING to stop his behavior if you don't follow through. Straight up.
