I totally agree that not everyone is my friend. But rather than look at it from a victimized perspective, I choose to see the blessings in it. Certain friends meet certain needs. Those needs may imply that they’re friends for a reason, season or a lifetime (credit to Iyanla). So rather than attach some negative story to my dissipated connections, I just choose to not take anything done with the intention of harming me personal, as some people just don’t know how to let things end naturally and peacefully. But because worse things have happened to me and I’m still living I choose to leave them be with the acceptance and understanding that they lived out their reason or season. I won’t lie and say any antics they display doesn’t ever annoy me but I know that I’m processing the intended lesson of their presence and departure from my life to minimize my reaction. The end of our friendship doesn’t make you fake. It makes the lesson to gain from it real as fuck and that’s all that matters.
"It’s just a prank, calm down!"
When did harassing women become a prank? You can clearly see that this girl is trying to laugh it off even though she’s uncomfortable with it, and that is not okay. If I’m a feminazi for pointing this out, then so be it, I’m not going to tolerate this shit.
If I was her, he’d be lying on the ground learning a lesson the hard way. Don’t. Touch. Me.
What models for fashion shows should look like
Nice! I would just want to know of the typical content to expect in the magazine. For instance, how will you represent us in a way that will attract both our generation and that of our parents? Is this just a hair magazine or will it include other content too?
