You ever look back like a year or two and wonder ‘what the fawk was I thinking?’  or ‘what in the hayle was I on?’

Sometimes in life, you gotta separate to see…

Meaning, you have to separate yourself from a lot of persons, places and things in order to gain clarity.  I think if everyone did more of this we’d all be better off.  The fleeting sense of personal responsibility that’s running rampant around here these days is both scary and sad.  What’s even worse is that I’m talking about the ‘grown-ups’ in this case.  The ‘children’…now that’s another story.  But one thing’s for sure is that they got it honest since they being raised by these common ass heaux. But anyways…

When you are able to separate yourself from somebody or some situation, then you can take off the blinders that we tend to put on in these scenarios.  Not only will you gain clarity to that situation, but you’ll also be able to gain insight and determine some things about yourself…like why in the hayle you ever allowed certain persons, places and things to come into your life and take up your space.  Chial…

I don’t know why it’s even remotely surprising or bothersome to me at this point in the game, especially since I’ve known that most people aint shit anyways people don’t seem to possess the accountability gene.  In an effort to always try to see the good in people, at least initially, it’s just always a bit of a let down when they prove you right.  I can’t remember exactly, but I know I was having this conversation with a friend of mine recently.  I was basically saying that we all possess the capacity for both good and evil; even though we may not want to admit the extent to which we are capable of causing harm or doing malice to both ourselves and others.  It just sucks when you make a conscious effort to choose to operate out of love rather than fear is all I guess.  

I’m going to continue to do just that, no matter what.  And when people show me who they are one time I have no choice but to believe them.  But serious up yall, as I get ready to move into the next phase of my life, no matter what that turns out to be, its always a good idea to re-examine some things…that’s all I’m saying.
