My 2017 Self Wants Ya’ll To Know

i got an interesting question from a foxholer in foxmail.
it’s one that i thought about for quite some time.

“What would your 2017 self tell your 2018 self?”

well,
after doing some pondering,
i would tell myself a few things actually…

NEVER START LACING UP SNEAKERS TO CHASE ANYONE THAT LEAVES YOUR LIFE

WORDS ARE ONLY MEANT TO TEMPORARILY SHUT YOU UP

FOLKS DON’T CHANGE UNLESS THEY’RE WILLING

THE WORD “NO” SHOULD BE USED MORE OFTEN

MOST OF THE WOLVES I LIKED/WANTED/EMBARRASSED MYSELF FOR ARE LEGIT WACK SAUCE

THEY WERE NEVER YOUR FRIENDS

SAYING GOODBYE IS FUN! MORE OF IT!

THEY DON’T LIKE YOU AND YOU DON’T LIKE THEM; LEARN TO CO-EXIST

THEY GET IT TOGETHER WHEN I’M ON MOOD “HE BITCH”

“I’M NOT INTERESTED” IS A LEGIT VIBE

THE VILLAIN IS NOT A BAD ROLE TO PLAY WHEN THEY MAD THEY COULDN’T GET OVER ON YOU

BARK LOUDER BECAUSE THEY DON’T BE HEARING YOU

YOU AREN’T THE PROBLEM WHEN YOU COMPARE YOURSELF TO THE IDIOTS

THOSE FEELINGS OF PURE HAPPINESS? FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE THEM LAST LONGER

FUCK A DRAGGING; SAY WHAT YOU FEEL AND MEAN WHAT YOU SAY

MORE STYLE AND SWAGG INSPIRATION

START UNBOXING THE BAGGAGE OF YOUR MESS

and lastly:

BLOGGING IS FREE THERAPY; USE IT

as i say farewell to 2017,
i look forward to what fun my 2018 self gets into.

    Well said Jamari. Now here is what I will say to my 2018 self:

    1. STOP FUCKING WITH PEOPLE WHO KNOW THEY AIN’T SHIT

    2. STOP WASTING TIME WITH LONG WINDED PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE ASSHOLES

    3. LEARN TO LET GO AND LET GOD (BECAUSE IT’S MUCH EASIER)

    4. FOCUS ON YOURSELF BECAUSE IT’S MUCH EASIER THAN FOCUS ON OTHER PEOPLE

    5. NOT EVERYONE IS OUT TO GET YOU, SO STOP LOOKING OVER YOUR SHOULDER (BUT KEEP YOUR EYES AND EARS PEELED FOR ANY FUNNY SHENANIGANS)

    6. STOP BEING DESPERATE AND JUST WAIT. YOUR MAN IS COMING AND YOUR DREAM JOB.

    7. STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHER PEOPLE (BECAUSE THEY ARE WACK SAUCE AND YOU’RE CREME DE LE CREME)

    8. PEOPLE THAT HAVE HURT YOU BACK THEN ARE MOVING ON, SO WHY AREN’T YOU?

    9. IF THE PEOPLE THAT YOU HAVE HURT HAS MOVED ON, THEN LOOSE THEM AND LET THEM GO (BECAUSE THEY AREN’T INTERESTED AND AIN’T SHIT TO BEGIN WITH)

    I’ve been always told that I should take my own advice, but I don’t because it’s hard to do so. I feel like that’s my biggest problem. Then again, the way people are set up, I don’t know.

    Love it I can relate to a lot of yours, mine would be the following:

    EVERYONE ELSE CAN SEE THE LIGHT IN YOU, ITS TIME YOU START SEEING IT AND USING IT

    HANDLE SMALL MOMENTS OF DISRESPECT TOWARDS YOU BEFORE THEY GET THE CHANCE TO GET BIGGER

    REALIZE A CRUSH IS JUST A CRUSH

    SAY NO MORE AND MEAN IT

    GOD ALWAYS HAS YOU POINT BLANK

    GO AFTER THE THINGS YOU WANT NOW STOP WAITING FOR SOME PERFECT SITUATION TO HAPPEN TO DO IT

    BECOME THE NIGGA YOU WANNA GET PHYSICALLY

    Have a happy new year foxhole
