day 25 of blogging each day in may is about what you have been told that you will never forget. for me hahaha, that i has been a lot in my almost 29 years on this earth. i will give you some good and bad ones.
good things i have been told:
"i think you are beautiful regardless if you have long hair or short hair. i love you for you"-my love
"you can do anything, you are a smart woman. you just need to set your mind to it and do it. we are always here to help and encourage"-my parents (they are still wanting me to go on with school either med school or a PhD program. i am still thinking and looking!)
"i am proud of you!"-my love
"it is okay Obi, i will protect you from the bugs"-my brother. and he still does! thank you!
bad things i have been told:
"you have poor time management"-my mother (i have gotten better)
"i do not think this is going to work out with us anymore" -my ex...it is okay, because i have moved on to better things, but these words hurt from anyone/former significant other.
"you cannot play with the barbies b/c they are white and you are black"-yes, i still remember this vividly from my childhood years (i was about 6 or 7 years old). racism and kids can be mean. i also remember her neighbor who was playing with us say: "it is ok, you can play with my barbies, they like everyone!"
**what have you been told that you will always remember?
