Accept it


Something that all of us need just in different ways. Some may need help with physical things others it might just be mental, it could even be someone moving something for you. I'm not just talking health this time I'm talking all around type of help. I'm going to ask a question and I would like it answered comment or email. 

Why do we not ask for help when we need it?

My answer to that is pride. I say pride because I've been on my own for almost 2 years with my son and I've built a steady life with just the 2 of us. I have to tell myself almost constantly it's okay to have help every now and again you have loved ones who want to help. I find it almost weird having a man help me clean, cook and so much more. Not just because my ex didn't do some of these things but because I don't have to ask him to help me he just does it. I knew I had things to work on for myself so I signed up for Better Help I wish I could afford it and keep it for the little time I've used it it's helped.

I don't have time to go see a counselor in person I can't take that many days off of work in a month. I'm not about to ask my boyfriend either because I know he would help. I don't per se want his help I just don't want him paying for it, even though I know I'm not when he pays for my stuff I feel like a golddigger. That's not me it's an argument every time we go out for supper on him paying for my stuff. I get he's my boyfriend but he shouldn't be obligated to do so. I get he makes that money but still he doesn't need to pay all the time. I love him and plan on him sticking around for a long time if he likes it or not.

We've been together for a month today I claim it was yesterday but we agree to disagree I know a month isn't very long but it's felt like a year. I know so much already and I love him so much I'm scared of how good he treats me and that he's going to get tired of my baggage that I still try to hide. Being honest with each other makes everything so easy.

So far I have learned to accept some of his help not all but some. He helps me with some of my bills we've even talked about getting a joint for bills and bills only. I've accepted the idea of him being my future I'm slowly getting back to that point and he's helping me. I know I'll get better mentally someday now let us just pray for whatever may come of my epilepsy.

Mom Life

If you're a mom you might just ask yourself this question almost daily "Am I a bad mom" I know I do and I normally talk to my best friend or my boyfriend about it and why I feel that way. I always get told the same thing by both of them "NO you are not a bad mom you are doing what you can" That is one this every mom needs to remember you're no a bad mom if it's your first child no matter how old they are you're still learning. Every day is a new lesson. You're never truly are on your own when it comes to parenting even if it feels like it at times. As being a human you're constantly learning even if you don't realize it. Just because it's not a big lesson sometimes the smaller ones can be more of an impact than the big ones.  My toddler constantly tests my patience he tries to push me to my breaking point. I get mad but I have to take a deep breath. I know he doesn't understand but sometimes I think he knows exactly what he&#

A New Decade or Chapter

It's that time a year again but, I have to do something new this year I'm considered self-employed thanks to my book . I never thought I would be able to say I'm self-employed even though I haven't broken even yet. I'm so grateful for 2019 and am ready to embrace 2020! It let in a new chapter of my life and I'm even working on my second book that will be done here soon. I'm not sure to this day if I took my first book in the right direction. The thing is you live and you learn though I hope to make a difference with my books  or book as of this moment I only have one. I do hope on releasing my second book this year titled Myself. I'm doing something that I never thought I would do but I'm revealing my true self I talked some about what I've been through in You.  I'm taking off my brave face and am going to reveal my feelings it's hard but I'm doing it. The thing is how am I going to help someone if I'm still hiding You . It

Listen to Your Body

I always talk about how important health is mind and body, but it doesn't prepare you for unexpected health issues. Unfortunately, that's what's going on with me. I don't know exactly what's going on I do know I've gotten into the doctor as soon as possible. That's something someone should do if somethings not right monitor it and if it doesn't stop after a few days go to the doctor. I'm no medical professional this is just my opinion. I ended up finding out what was going on. I'm still going through all the treatment it was nothing deadly nothing dangerous. I'm glad everything has been figured out. Remember if something is abnormal with your body check it out your health is important. This is partially the reason I've been gone in the month of November. I found out that I abnormal bleeding in my womanhood. I accidentally overlap with two different types of birth control the depo shot and the arm implant. So that life lesson has been
