The True Supreme, IMHO
This is important.
There is something about finding out why people dont like you that is so weird.
You immediately go to why?
I then usually tend to move towards well how can i change that and if you tell me something about it and say “because” im going to ask for something else because I AM WILLING TO CHANGE.
Id just like to know as much as i can, so i can.
But when its “she just thinks youre a bad person” comes out in a time where youre already in a weird spot, where youre depressed, and you dont really think they know you like many others know you how do you take that?
Do i change? what is there to change? Do i really want to know why it is that you perceive me as “bad” ?
I work on myself daily.
I pick myself apart daily.
I try to remember that sometimes the way people read you is a reflection of themselves but…
How do you work through something like this.
“My happiest memories are from when I was growing up in South Carolina. I remember sitting in the kitchen, waiting on breakfast and listening to the coffee perkin’. My grandmother had her own garden, and my grandfather had his own grocery store, so we always had fresh vegetables and grits and bacon and eggs. That was a big deal back then in the 50’s— for a black man to own a grocery store. If someone needed credit, my grandfather would just write their name in a book. And if they couldn’t pay, he’d just forget about it. He was shorter than I was, and very quiet. But everybody respected him. He used to walk to the store every morning before dawn, with a 38’ in his hand. Every night he’d walk home with that same gun in his hand. Even the white delivery men called him Mr. Robinson. MISTER Robinson.”
