I Refuse To Love Your Unchanging Heart!



Too often you are taught to stay when the pain is becoming unbearable!


How many people deal with the confusion of trying to stay with a person who is refusing to change inwardly?

Daily we are asked to remain beside individuals out of love because we are told to accept that people do have flaws. Yet at some point those unchanging flaws can destroy a nation if the person is unwilling to fix the matter.

It's so very hard to love someone that doesn't want to change. I mean you may try with all you have to hang in there and help them see the benefits of changing but if they refuse constantly then its rough streets ahead.

No one deserves to be constantly hurt. 





That's not a sign of love and nobody should make the mistake of saying you don't love them if you refuse to deal with their mess.

There's only so much a person can take when you refuse to change. It's that issue of loving you but refusing to love the part of you that doesn't want to change.

Too many miss out on love from a loyal individual because they are selfish and want you to just accept them as they are.

Where are the rules that state that I have to love you in your mess? Where are the rules that say while you continue to abuse my love, that I should stay beside you?

That's an unfair situation on love and nobody should have to deal with that.

I truly feel that if you find someone who knows what you are dealing with and still wants to remain beside you to work through it....then you should definitely work hard to change whatever behavior it is that is causing pain in your relationship.




The other side of dealing with someone who refuses to change is that it drives you crazy.

Lets add that they will happily say you are crazy because you are getting fed up with their behavior.

Nothing sucks like giving all of your energy towards helping them better themselves inside & out and they kick you in the face! In other words they have no love or remorse for anything that you have done for them. They purposely & intentionally hurt you because they know that you just might never go anywhere.

Ever met someone like that?

A person that lies constantly about changing but then retreats back to that behavior while demanding you respect their ugliness.

Every person on this earth has a breaking point and that is a major deal breaker in a  lot of relationships & marriages.

Nobody has to put up with that. Nobody has to love those unchanging flaws within you.

When you love someone, you change those ugly sides of you. Simply because you want the other person to be happy, and most importantly you desire to be completely happy within.

Don't allow anyone to make you feel like you have to put up with their behavior year after year for the sake of love. 

Let it go and set them free. People who refuse to change for you are not for you. You deserve someone who will willingly change things that can harm your heart and the relationship.

KANYE WEST HOSPITALIZED & HANDCUFFED IN AMBULANCE

Kanye West

   
Kanye West appears to be going through a lot of issues lately. Some state that its a lot deeper than just his problems with Beyonce & Jay Z. 
Around this time in November of 2007 , he lost his mother Donda West and that lost could be what is triggering his emotions right now during the holiday season.

Some feel its just a series of built up emotions for the artist and maybe it is time for him to pause what he is doing and receive the help he needs. Kanye West is an amazing father so we know that this help is needed in order for him to maintain that positive image for his daughter and not continue with outbursts.

While Kanye West, 38, has achieved incredible success in love and life, the devastating loss of his mother, Donda West, still weighs heavily on Yeezy’s heart. Donda’s passing may have affected him more than anyone thought, because the “All Day” rapper confessed he thinks he’s responsible for her death!

Kanye revealed this personal detail while speaking with Q magazine for their August issue, reports the Daily Mail. Donda passed away due to heart disease following a surgical procedure in 2007. But, Kanye said the fault for her death rests solely on his own shoulders!

“If I had never moved to LA, she’d be alive,” Kayne said. When asked to explain further as to what he meant by that, Yeezy said “I don’t want to go far into it because it would bring me to tears.”
Recently on yesterday the artist was taken to the hospital in handcuffs for a psychiatric evaluation.

Via TMZ:

Kanye West has been taken to UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation.
According to law enforcement sources ... cops responded to a call for a welfare check on Kanye around 1:20 PM PT. He was at his trainer, Harley Pasternak's home at the time and was "acting erratically."





We're told police called L.A. Fire, and by the time paramedics arrived Kanye was calmer ... but still resistant to going to the hospital. We're told everyone -- his management and law enforcement -- convinced him it was best he go. Law enforcement sources tell us Kanye was handcuffed to a gurney during transport to the hospital ... as standard protocol.
We got Pasternak outside his house late Monday evening. If he knows how Kanye's doing, he's not saying much.
Sources connected to Kanye tell us he was getting checked out by one of his doctors for severe sleep deprivation while he was at Pasternak's place ... and someone decided to call police.
The hospitalization comes on the heels of Kanye abruptly cancelling the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour, and launching into a verbal attack on Jay Z and Beyonce.




As we told you, Kim Kardashian flew to NYC early Monday for her first public event since the Paris robbery ... but she's now officially bailed. It's a good bet she's wheels up for L.A.

Story developing ...

'Angry Black Woman': [Poetry] By: Poet Tanisha "Starr" Davis


They say you a mad black woman! They say we always mad about something!

Every time we cry out for being hurt, then we simply mad about something.

There aint no remorse when we simply express how we feel...nah we only good for expressing ourselves as objects of strong sex appeal.
We only fit to be looked upon while keeping our mouths closed.
Keeping blocks on our mind but keeping our legs open so he can say "Man she fine!" now drop them clothes.

Yea we a bunch of angry black women every time we open our mouth to express how we feel about a brother who aint keeping it real.

They say we to blame for the mess that we go through. They say heck we the reason he treat us like he do. Yea we are the ones to blame for every got freaking thang and if we get to speaking out on it, then suddenly "Angry Black Woman" becomes our name.

Man enough of being silent every time we say how we feel. Call me emotional, say Im sensitive, I dont give two cares about how you feel! I'm just being real.

We are objects paraded about in a society that has no respect for us. A society that promotes side chicks and friendly benefits over a committed marriage. A society that destroyed the pumpkin and crashed the carriage...a freaking fairytale of a hope that we wish for along with a lovely shiny carat.

Yea we always wrong for following our heart and giving up more of our time than we really should. All cause he said be quiet, quit tripping, baby its all good.

Back and forth we trying to deal with the mess because others tell us its worth fighting for. Got our hearts now becoming a revolving door!
Soon it all builds up and she spills the cup, liquids of confessional pain flowing all over from the membrane and the first thang he say is she crazy...she insane.

He start yelling how she misunderstood what he said cause baby girl we were simply just friends. He got her assuming that all his love actions were a fantasy made up of her own. Now she standing crying and on the verge of fighting to not be alone.

Angry Black Woman...yep that's what you get called every time you speak your mind about the pain you been through.

Yet dont we have a right to be angry sometimes when the heart has been tampered with then treated like a cold case crime?!

Chief Of Mobile AL Police Department Catching Heat From Wife's Racist Comment

Has the US not experienced enough this year with racism in the Black Community?

Matter of fact, has the Black Community not experienced enough over the past 50 years with racism?

The City Of Mobile is known for being a major tourist attraction because of its nearby beaches, fresh seafood and for being the original home of Mardi Gras.

Yet the last thing the city wants to be known for is having their Chief carrying out matters of anything related to law enforcement with a wife who feels that "all blacks are violent".
Below is an image containing the comment on Facebook made by Chief Barber's wife, 'Faith Barber' after an individual stated, "All Blacks Are Not Violent" upon which she replied "Since when?".






This just goes to show you how "some" white people low key feel about blacks regardless of how educated or financially grounded you are. This is merely a reflection of the conversations their household speaks on behind closed doors or among their friends. These are the very ones who are your doctors, nurses, lawyers and more. To say all blacks are violent is a very ignorant and uneducated statement.

 We personally don't feel he should continue on as Chief of the Mobile Police Department unless the City of Mobile is happy with having a Chief with a public identity for being racist towards blacks residing over their city's law enforcement department. This can only lead us to believe that many cases are being possibly handled with a lack of concern because they feel all blacks are violent anyway. Mind you a while back he even stated that had Michael Moore, (who was a young black teen killed by a white officer of the Mobile Police Department) not been riding around in a stolen car, he would have not been killed. That along was another uneducated response to say that any person deemed as a possible criminal deserves to be killed.
Let us add that there is currently no updates on that murder case by that officer and no hearing of a trial scheduled any time soon.

According to Fox 10 News, the Chief made an open apology for his wife's comments on the Facebook site and comments previously made by himself. The community however feels that his apology is not even close to being enough and many feel that he should resign from his position.

We do not feel that statements such as this should be overlooked by a minor apology. Her uneducated actions should lead to some form of discipline. It would be difficult to assume that the citizens of the city as well as those "Black Officers" who serve in the blue under him are content with this behavior.
These same "Black Officers" who she carelessly labeled that "all blacks are violent" are the very ones who serve and protect you and your family. So to say they all are violent or "since when" did they not exist as violent is truly idiotic.

If I were in LE (Law Enforcement), I would probably feel a bit indifferent serving under these accusations.


How do you feel about this situation?
Do you feel Chief Barber should resign following this statement by his wife or past statements he has made? Do you feel the City of Mobile deserves another Chief over their Police Department?

Actor/Comedian Brandon T. Jackson Has An OBSESSED STALKER!


Everyone knows the funny man, Brandon T. Jackson for his movie roles and his latest Fresh & Funny Tour that has been quite successful with sell out shows all year. However we received a tip this morning that the actor has been dealing with a crazed fan on Instagram since August of this year, who has been causing problems between him and his current girlfriend, Denise Xavier, claiming that she is married & pregnant by the actor!


The female, has a full page on Instagram claiming that she and the actor are married and expecting a baby!





 


















We all know that celebrities deal with crazy fans everyday but we think she has taken things to the next level, and we call that obsession!

Recently I had the pleasure of attending one of Brandon T. Jackson's shows in Atlanta, Georgia for the Fresh & Funny Tour, and I was shocked to discover that this female had even stolen one of my pictures and posted it on her page as if she were me! Her page also consists of possibly other stolen images from the web of pictures of twin babies that she claims are also the actor's children by her!

I knew I was popular with my writing but to see her use one of my pictures was a huge shock! Who else is she imitating just to cause problems for the actor. Brandon T. Jackson is a very spiritual and down to earth man and sadly this is an issue that we hope he can resolve.



What in the world is wrong with people when it comes to these celebrities?
It appears just from strolling down her page that she has created her own little world evolved around her and the actor. We can only hope that the actor is able to get matters under control before he stars in a real life sequel movie of Obsession!




This is crazy!

Next Level Living: The Growth Process

Life is all about growing and advancing to the next stage of your life.

We are growing daily from the time we enter this world until the latter parts of our life.

As we grow, things within us began to change and we are able to do things differently than we were able to do before.

A baby starts out scooting across the floor, then crawling, then balancing, then finally walking.

Our life should be a symbolization of growth, and nothing should ever be the same with us as it was in the previous year. We should never find ourselves complacent and in a repetitive cycle that is getting us nowhere.

At the end of every year, we began to set goals for how we will improve the next year, we call them our New Years Resolutions. These goals are set to push us to the next level of our life. These goals are reminders of where we want to see ourselves in the year to come. These goals are our visions to becoming better inside and out.

You should always evaluate your life and observe if you are growing mentally as well as spiritually. Nothing about you should remain the same if it is not beneficial to your growth.

I observe many who are in the same place of their life year after year after year. They have sadly grown content with being in a negative cycle that has become a hindrance to their growth.

As we age, I would like to believe that we should also age mentally.

We shouldn't be doing the same things we did as a teenager when we are in the stages of an adult. We shouldn't hold the same conversations or distribute the same behaviors as we did as a child.

When others see us, they should not be able to say, "You haven't changed at all", instead they should be able to say, "There is something different about you!".

Ever met a person and every time you see them, they are up to the same old habits, living in the same situation, doing the same stuff that has not profited them each year?

Its honestly quite depressing to look at and you wish there was a way to show them that there was so much more to life than the current situation they choose to remain in.

At the age of 13 I made a decision to be better than my surroundings. Year after year I would push to be better than the year before. As I got older, I was experimenting with new work fields, going to trade school and learning different skills, or just moving around and living in different cities to expand my knowledge on life.

I tend to laugh when my peers state that I'm always living somewhere different or on the go.

This is because my mindset is never the same and I am never in the same place for too long. I do not grow content in areas that are holding me back and not allowing me to go to the next level of my life spiritually or physically.

You have to seek advancement and desire to be better!

How have you changed this year? What is new about you this year? Are you still doing the same things you were last year and the year before?

You must look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself simple questions like this. These questions allow you to see if you are growing in the right direction. You can age but you can also age in the wrong direction. A tree planted on bad soil or in a bad location can grow crooked or leaning to the side. Your desire is to grow upright without limitations to your growth.

If you discover that nothing about you has changed or matured then you need to take the steps now to fix those things in your life so that you may receive all that life has to offer you behind the next door of your life.

Let me add that you should also be wise about the company you keep when seeking to advance to the next level.

As you grow, avoid hanging around those who are not trying to improve in their life as you are. We all tend to get caught up in hanging around childhood friends but if those friends are not pushing you to become a better you then they are not your friends. You should never involve yourself with those who desire to see you on the same level every year and encourage foolish behavior and thinking.

Are you happy where you are today?

If not then now is the time to make changes. You don't have to wait until the new year to make changes in your life. Scripture tells us to take no thought for tomorrow so therefore tomorrow is not a guaranteed fact but today is because you are alive and living.

Now is the time for growth and change.

Take that step in the right direction and break the cycle. No more living in a circle and being known to others as always being the same person every year, in the same situation.

Its time to grow!
