Long Distance Relationships Aren’t Bad 

Now maybe the title of this post caught your attention or you could be curious. There’s nothing wrong with trying to find out why I wrote about this topic. Anyways, most people always have a negative thought about long distance relationships. Every time someone finds out that I am in one they always saying “your boyfriend is cheating on you”, “I can’t handle being away from my boyfriend or girlfriend for too long”, “how do you trust each other.” Oh yeah, I can’t forget the famous “you’re getting catfished” response.

Most of the time I ignore these questions or statements because once I try to explain myself there is always someone trying to play the devil’s advocate. Honestly, they won’t understand what a long distance relationship feels like until they experience catching feelings for someone who’s far away. Situations like this aren’t planned. It’s not like one day I woke up saying I want to be in a long distance relationship, so let me go find someone across the world to go date.

My point is this kind of relationship isn’t bad if you and your partner truly love each other, have good communication through text messages, video chats, or phone calls and make sure you’re able to trust each other. I definitely know that’s one of the hardest things to do, but if something is going on behind your back you’ll get a strange alarming feeling that will warn you. Another point I want to make that’s referring to cheating is even someone who dates a person that lives in the same town as they do can get cheated on as well. It all depends on if your partner truly loves and care about you. If someone tries to talk down on your long distance relationship ignore them cause I’m sure they are probably with someone who they are unhappy with or that’s cheating on them or they just don’t want to see you happy. I don’t mind being in my long distance relationship because I know that my boyfriend and I appreciate our quality time more than a couple that gets to see each other every day.

Goals

Maybe my dreams aren’t crazy

Why should I hold back because no one supports me

Giving up will only leave me full of regret

I don’t want to go around asking myself “what if”

The only thing that matters is that I believe in myself

I’m so focused on my future 

That I  may be ignoring my present opportunities

Loving You

There’s fear in my heart to start loving you

Putting trust into you is a risk that might kill me

Although, you might not understand the guard over my heart

It protects you more than me

Do you want to know why?

Once I feel that pain you may cause my heart

I’m likely to cause harm to your life

You see I don’t play about my feelings

It’s a golden treasure

Chaos in America

I know other countries around the world is laughing at us. I’m so ashamed of the country that I live in now. Trump is bringing in a lot of extra chaos that shouldn’t have happened in the first place. It makes me sick to my stomach that most people in America voted for him. Then again I’m not surprised that they did because of how hateful some American people can be. America was a place to enjoy freedom. Now it’s turning into a corrupted country with a hateful, racist, and disrespectful president. It’s heartbreaking to know that Trump will ruin the opportunity for me to explore the world just because he wants to be an evil person and get on the other countries bad side. He’s creating a disturbing picture of innocent Americans that don’t want any problems with anybody. All I can really do is pray for my country. I just want world peace. I love everyone equally! Anybody that knows me well knows how much I want to bring everyone together as a family.It makes me frustrated that most people rather cause hate than just to love everyone equally. I don’t want everyone to be against each other. If I had the chance to change the world into a better place I would.

Book Review: Diary of a Stalker by Electa Rome Parks

Summary: Xavier Preston is an attractive best-selling author who has plenty of female fans. His player days are over since he got engaged to his fiancée. While being away on a book signing he has a one-night stand with a woman named Pilar. Every since that night, Pilar grew a crazy obsession over him. 

Review: I read this book 2 or 3 years ago. It’s an attention grabber. Pilar is one crazy woman. I swear she is one woman who any man should be careful about. I loved this book! Another good thing about this book is that it has a part two!! That book review will be coming soon. The plot twists from this story will be very unexpected. It will remind you of a crazy lifetime movie. Anyone that’s a young adult or older should read this book. There are sexual and cursing parts in the book. 

Genre: Drama, Fiction

Stars: 10/10

Stores you can buy this book from:

Books-a-million 

Amazon

Barnes and noble

Made a Facebook Group for Bloggers

Hey bloggers, 

I made a Facebook group for the bloggers that follow me and anyone else that is interested in joining. In the group, you will be able to promote your blog while connecting/making blogger friends. I searched up other groups on Facebook they seemed too strict for me. Honestly, I understand everyone wants to protect their work, but I feel like my group will be more open to everyone. I did set minimum rules though just so we don’t have any unnecessary problems. I want to make this a big group to make everyone comfortable with sharing their blogs with others. I’m excited to see how far this group goes.

Please like, share, and join the group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/629835867224085/
