DO YOU BELONG IN THE PETTY HALL OF FAME?

This post is triggered by a recent experience with a friend. Let me try summarise, I told myself that I would communicate better this year. Usually, when someone hurts me or does something that leaves me feeling some typa way I just smile and wave. Unhealthy! So I...

LIFE

Many have called it a journey but what is a journey with no destination? Where are we going? Are we in a tunnel that will lead us to a secret place where we all belong? Who knows the destination? So many questions, no answers. Some say it is a roller coaster, this...

SONGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW WERE ABOUT SEX

Childhood ruined! In my defense, my mind was very innocent so I heard what I heard. Now I wonder what our parents used to think as we sang these songs out loud in the hallway. Or when it came on and we got all excited talking about, 'that's my song!' Oooh, chile! No...

THE CHURCH- A PLACE OF LOVE OR HATE?

The reality that is the hurt, anger and hatred that lives amongst christians and church members. There is a tug of war which lives and can not be avoided for one reason or another. We are said to be Christ-like, where have you found Christ taking your joy from you? Surely we have a long way to go, we speak of a love we know nothing about.

REASONS OUR LIVES ARE UNFULFILLED

We are the chosen generation,right? I mean can we surely sing and shout it out loud that we are chosen. We have it good and can totally conquer. I guess we sorta, kinda are but most of the time we are in limbo. You may be thinking, 'Bu, I'm as stable as a horse,' well...

Feeling Powerful Cause You Are Straight?

This post is inspired by Pose season 3. This show is excellent, it really tells the stories of the LGBTQIA+ community so well. There are struggles I already knew but watching the show opened my eyes to the amount of privilege that I live in. Simple things like if I...

UNTIL IT HAPPENS TO YOU – CHAPTER 3

My sister and I did not grow up together. The passing of our parents resulted in us being separated. It was not our choice, she was taken by an aunt and as for me I was a basketball or a tennis ball rather. I was here, there and everywhere. Either way we were not...

MY WORST ENEMY..

When you gone pieces of me fall apart and my heart begins to race in ways no speedometer can calculate. Things around me begin to shift and exist in mid air, I can hardly pull them down. My  brain cells begin to fall apart, one at a time piling up like coins in places...

I am Not Cut Out For Motherhood

I was watching The Bold Type season 4 episode 14 when I got the urge to write on this. Let me give you a little background so you understand how this all began. Sutton had just gotten married to her lover, Richard, a wedding that we had all been waiting for. A few...

Do You Really Know Your Worth?

Do You Really Know Your Worth?

The saying, ‘Know your worth,’ is thrown around a lot on the internet these days. Nine times out of ten this statement is used in reference to a relationship that has gone sour. Someone cheats and the definition of knowing your worth is walking away from the...

Why you need to learn and understand HIV/AIDS

I wrote this piece titled I am sorry in the year 2015 and when I read it today, I see where I was coming from but there are parts of this blog post that show my ignorance in the matter. Whilst I took the time to get in the shoes of the person who was born HIV...

Sex and orgasms, a woman’s first love.

Sex and orgasms, a woman’s first love.

'Act like a lady.' This is something I am sure many girls have been told, we are raised to act a certain way so that we can be perfect candidates for the wife role. I was once told to 'laugh like a lady,' and I was not sure if I was meant to kiki instead of just...
