Words Do Hurt People Feelings

It’s time to talk about how much words do hurt people. I know you remember that saying “sticks and stones may break my bones but words don’t hurt.” This saying is not true at all. Honestly, words hurt worse than getting hurt physically. It hits you in a deep kind of way. The type of pain that never goes away. It really hits you to the core.

Especially if you hear those hurtful words from someone that you are close with. Those people know the wrong words to say at the wrong time. I feel like if a person says something that makes you upset in an emotional way. Then you should keep your distance away from there. Most of the time they say comments to hurt your feelings because that’s their intentions anyway. They want to see you upset or have a downfall. Also, it’s best to keep your distance if you express to them that what they say hurts you and they ignore what you told them.  

Not everyone takes what a person says lightly. That’s why you should watch what you say to people. Even if a person doesn’t show you they feel some type of way about certain things you might’ve said to them. You can still feel a weird vibe between the two of you if you are around them or whenever you communicate with them. You never know what a person is going through. What you say to them might trigger them to spazz out or even worse commit suicide or at least try to. Not everyone is mentally stable to handle certain things. If you have sense enough to know that what you may say to a person won’t be nice. Then you should keep it to yourself. It’s nothing wrong with speaking your mind. You just need to learn how to speak your mind in a respectful way. 

Share your opinion on how words hurt people feelings. Do you consider the person sensitive? If you had an experience with someone hurting your feelings by what they said to you share your story. That’s if you don’t mind telling it.

4 Places You Can Buy Cheap Books From

Finding the perfect store to buy cheap books is difficult if you don’t know where to go. Even though books are not cheap at all. It’s still nice to find some place where to can buy books in your price range. Hopefully, the stores that are listed below become your favorite place to shop for books.

1) Goodwill: If you have this thrift store in your town and city stop by and take a look in the store. They have a good variety of used books. Recently, I went to my local Goodwill store to find some books. The books I bought were very cheap and in good condition. I got 5 books for $4.97 USD. Man, when I walked out that store I felt so good. Imagine if I went to Barnes and Noble. I probably would’ve spent $100 or more on 5 books.

2) Thriftbooks: I have ordered from their website twice. One night I was on YouTube and I discover their site. I was so hyped about it. I felt like I hit the jackpot. Anyways, they are an online site that sells new and used books. You can find any book you can imagine on their site. You only have to spend at least $10 to get free shipping. That’s a deal right there. Most of the book prices start from $3.79 on up. On my first order of books I bought from them I got 4 books for $15.86 USD. The second set of books I order from them I got 5 for books for $20.24 USD. Click here to check out thriftbooks.com.

3) Walmart: If you shop at Walmart to do grocery shopping you should stop by their book section. They update the section frequently. Usually, when I visit their book section they have books that just been released or been out for a while. Most of the time their book prices start at $5.00 or more. I’ve bought a good bit of books out of their store.

4) Dollar Tree: Sometimes this store can have a good selection of books if you’re open to reading any genre. Also, some Dollar Tree stores have a better book selection than others. Make sure you go to a good one. Usually, when I look through their books I take my time and look extra hard through them lol. I’m very picky when it comes to picking out a good book. The reason this store is on the list because their books are only $1.00 USD plus tax. The tax is only like 0.08 though. You will be surprised at what kind of books you are able to find out of there. You may see one of your favorite author books in there.

If you get a chance make sure you check out the stores that were mention in the article. Have you ever bought books from any of the stores that were mention? Do you know any more stores that sell books at a cheap price? If so, feel free to comment the store names.

Vibes You Sense From A Person

Have you ever been in a room and felt someone vibe base on their presence? They didn’t even have to speak to you for you to know that their a good or bad person. Some of you probably thinking “how in the world will I be able to determine that without even speaking to the person that enters the room?” Well, the best response I can tell you is that you will get certain body reactions (like facial expressions), gut feeling, or you can feel a strong presence of good or evil.

For example, two people could be mad at each other and be in a group setting with others. Everyone in the group can feel the tension between the two people who are mad at each other. It can feel like a big elephant in the room. I don’t know if some of you heard of that expression before. It basically means it’s something no one isn’t trying or wants to talk about.

I can tell y’all plenty of stories where I been to work, school, or any other places where I didn’t know certain strangers and I could tell whether or not they were a good or bad person. One thing that really catches my attention is when my whole mood change when someone comes in the area or room I am in. I could be in a very happy mood than all of a sudden I feel upset. That’s how I can tell a person has a bad vibe to them. They didn’t even have to speak to me for me to get upset about something with them. It’s weird how our intuition can alarm us.

No, I don’t want any of you to think I have any type of jealousy towards anyone that comes my way. I’m not a jealous person at all or don’t like anyone for no reason at all. I was just blessed with a gift where I can pick the good from the bad or the fake from the real. Even a person body language can tell you a lot about the person. I am not an expert on that so I won’t get deep into that.

Anyways, anyone has the ability to feel any type of vibe from a stranger or a person they know. You just have to pay attention to the way you act with the person you come across. That is a sign or signal right there.  Have you ever been in a situation where you felt a certain type of vibe from a person? Or do you know someone who had a similar experience to what I talked about in the article?

Your Love & Lies…

Suffocated with your lies

Knowing the truth but my heart wants to deny

The love I have for you causes me to be so blind

Why can’t I leave you behind?

Loving you is convenient

But leaving you is heartbreaking…

The repeat of the hurt triggers me to hurt you back

I want you to feel the pain too

Early karma needs to come back to you…

Things You Should Blog About

Before you start reading deeper into this article. I’m not going to give you some bullshit advice (excuse my language). It’s not going to sound cliché either. So, let’s get right into it.

One thing you need to remind yourself is that YOU are in control of what goes on. This is YOUR blog not anybody else stuff.  You can post anything that you choose. Don’t over worry yourself about having a certain “niche” to focus on. I believe that is most of our problem. We get caught up in trying to focus on some certain criteria. It takes away from our creativity and holds us back on expressing how we feel. You will always find yourself thinking “are my readers or subscribers going to like this?” Will they stop reading my content because it’s not what they are expecting to read on my blog? That’s one thing you shouldn’t pressure yourself to worry about.

Normally when you read advice about what should your blog be about. Every person mentions a “niche.” Yeah, a niche is cool to think about and everything but honestly, in my opinion, it’s not too important. Of course, you want people to understand what your website is all about. I completely get that point. Eventually, they will understand what you’re all about. Just go with the flow of things.

When you are first starting out with blogging just create anything that comes to mind. It doesn’t matter one day you’re talking about painting a portrait then the next day you post about walking a dog. As long as it represents topics you enjoy writing about that is all that matters. The main goal of a blog is to write what you are passionate about right? That is why they create certain categories to place things in.

Instead of labeling yourself as a beauty, travel, or fashion blogger. Think of your blog as a simple lifestyle blog. Calling yourself a lifestyle blogger can give you a chance at being versatile on your site. If you are not cool with that like I said before it is YOUR blog. Do whatever you want.

The point I am getting at is when you are in control to bring your creativity to the light. Stop letting minor things hold you back. Especially, if you want to create your own blog. Blogging is a way to express yourself through writing and sharing it with the world. When you stay in tune with being yourself. It will shape your site into the most unique piece of work you ever put together.

If you read this article to the end. What are some challenges do you expect to face when creating blog content? Are you worried your blog won’t be good enough? Share your thoughts in the comment section. If you are already a blogger share some more advice to other bloggers.

My Trip to Barnes & Noble

Today, I went to my local Barnes & Noble store to buy me some good books to read. The books that I chose looked interesting. I’m so excited to read them. I did read the summary of the books before I got them. Before I spent a good bit of money on them. I had to make sure they were worth reading. It’s nothing worse than spending a lot of money on a book or books then they suck. The books I decided buying are…

1) Working Girls by Katt

2)The Pink Palace by Marlon McCaulsky

3)The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Life by Jennifer Byrne

They sound like good books, right? The first two books are urban fiction books which are books I tend to read the most. Book number three is a fun book to give out life advice that I don’t mind following. Can y’all believe that I spent $61.19 on just those three books? Most of you would probably be upset if you spent that much money on books. But, if you’re a book lover like me it doesn’t matter what the total was. As long as you had enough money to buy it then you’re good.

Also, I know most of you are wondering why didn’t I have a membership card or go to Books-a-Million because it’s cheaper. Well, today I finally signed up for a membership card at Barnes and Noble. Usually, I avoid it but today I didn’t. So, now when I go to Barnes and Noble I get a good discount on things I buy out of there. Oh yeah, the cashier did give me a discount on my purchase too since I had signed up for the card.

I was happy with my purchase today. Every time I go to Barnes & Noble I can’t leave out of there with at least one book lol. I have an addiction to buying books!! Like I said earlier in this post I’m a book lover. I can’t help it. Do any of you buy books from Barnes & Noble? If so, what kind of books do you buy? After I read my books I purchase I will give everyone a book review. My challenge for you is to go out and buy a book that catches your interest.

Deceiving People Can Fool You 

There are some people out there who are deceiving. When you first meet them, they give you the impression that they have pure intentions. When in actuality their intentions are to feed their own selfish needs. Once you get to know the person on a deeper level. Certain things that they do starts to make sense. For example, when they come around other people everyone starts acting differently towards them. When I say different I mean everyone is having a good time then suddenly, their mood turns sour. When a certain someone comes around. The vibe is thrown off. A person presence can tell you a bit about them.

Deceiving people can come in the forms of a friend, stranger, or family. They could be someone who’s rich or poor. You’re getting the point, right? If anyone ever fooled you into thinking they’re a sweet person and care about you. Then later they transformed into a person you don’t even recognize.  Don’t feel like you’re stupid. This happens to all of us. It shows you how you should be careful with trusting others. Everyone is not trustworthy.

Remember that deceiving people love taking advantage of the weak. Try not to show your vulnerability too quick. Some people can sense it quicker than others. Also, they will try to play mind games with you. I’m sure you’re catching my point by now. So, tell me have you ever encounter an incident with a deceiving person or people? Like you thought they were a good person but their goal the whole time was to trick you into thinking that. Let’s have a full discussion in the comment section.
