to

"do i even want to date them??"

things get very clear

First of all, good job! You’re thinking about making a self care kit and that’s a great first step. Self care is a vital part of being an activist, caring for others, dealing with trauma, or just generally being a well-rounded and happy…

youngblackandvegan:

One ex of mine
We were having sex, and it was great
But it started to not feel right
It went from us having sex every so often
To
Everytime we chilled, we’d have sex
That we couldn’t go one whole day just enjoying each other’s company
Eventually we would have sex
And eventually I wondered…

For when you need Him, but don’t quite know what to say or where to start:

1- Lord, please just make a way.
2- Lord, I just need you right now.
3- Lord, help me to be still.

The worst thing is when you date somebody who was lonely before you. Because they don’t want you. They want your presence. And eventually even that will lose its value.

Because nobody can ever teach another person to be happy within themselves.

Anonymous asked: why do you think it's important to wait for sex until you're married?


Answer:

youngblackandvegan:

Its important to me because I am trying to separate lustful feelings from love feelings and going without sex allows me to know that this love we have is just that. Love
Also, although I’m not a virgin, God has said to limit sex to marriage. In the past, having sex out of marriage didn’t sit right with my spirit. I enjoy having a relationship that didn’t conflict with my spirit.
It allows me to have no gray areas about men’s intentions. Not having sex weeds out all the men that are interested in dating just for sex. Waiting until marriage means I never have to wonder if a guy is only interested on me because he wants to have sex with me. I know he calls and talks to me because he genuinely likes me. And I know when he says he loves me, he doesn’t just mean for my body. Obviously there are still people who will think they can turn you out if you say toy don’t have sex. But for the most part, it has made dating easier. And definitely let me know that my boyfriend isn’t only with me for sex. And that’s a huge load.
Finally, no sex allows me to redefine intimacy. Today, we define intimacy in a cheap way. We define it as sex. But animals have sex. Everyone has sex. That’s not the only way to be intimate. Praying and getting to know my boyfriend on a deep level is more intimate than I’ve ever been in a relationship. It’s opened my mind to see intimacy is more than physical.
So that’s my reason. To some people, not having sex isn’t for sine people. But me and he enjoy the way or relationship works. Sex is amazing. I am excited to do that with whoever I marry

As promised, here are some progress pics from my 14 day detox with @yourtea. I’m 3 days in am SO IMPRESSED! My bloating has decreased significantly. I’m literally shocked. This tea has also helped with my “bathroom regularity,” which I needed. 
How I implement my #YourTea into my diet:

One cup in the morning before eating and one cup before bed.
Throughout the day I drink A LOT of water, ( at least four 25 oz bottles). Also, I’ve been doing Zumba as my form of exercise which I LOVE! 
I can’t wait to see my results in another few days. This tea isn’t cheap but I’m glad I have it a try. If you have a few extra pennies in your budget, it’s def worth a shot.

I can’t keep trying to escape my reality my whole life.

If I’m going to be here, If I’m going to live this life, I’m going to be happy. Not continually, but mostly.
