a cold jamari fox is a better jamari fox

i’m def not the person i was at the beginning of this year.
that fox was an insecure mess who was begging to be taken seriously.
he was discarded from a terrible job and thought he lost the world.
for the first couple of months,
i was broke af and struggling with the worse kind of anxiety.
whenever we all fell into this alternate universe,
that’s when things started to change for me.
there was a wolf i was interested in real heavy…

i mean,
i was realllllllllllllly into him.
he is a reg-deg,
but i was drawn energetically to him.
we flirted heavy with our actions last year.
this year,
i was gonna bag that.
i had plans in my head to turn him tf out.

he started acting funny and it left me really confused.
i’d hit him up only to be ignored.
i won’t lie,
but he filled me with a lot of anxiety.
he did something recently that had me vex af and that started the ball rolling.

I looked at his pics today,
along with someone,
I think he is in a low-key relationship with,
and I didn’t feel anything.
No anxiety; no sadness.
I didn’t even care.
Good for him.

there is a wolf out there who will be more aggressive and secure for me.

i’ve been in a particular friend group for close to 3 years.
we spoke damn near every day.
you would think within 3 years,
speaking highly about how honest i am,
they would give me the same benefit of the doubt.
i’ve come to realize that we truly didn’t know each other.
we had a disagreement so folks decided to move real sneaky and act passive-aggressive.

At first,
I was sad and was fucked up about it,
but I decided to move on.
No beef or begging to have a conversation.
I left the group chat and went about my business.
I don’t want to be ANYWHERE that I’m not wanted or appreciated.

 i’ve become cold.
don’t get me wrong,
i still have warmth but i’m more guarded about where i give my emotions now.
i have empathy and still cry when i feel emotional,
but a part of me feels disconnected from those emotions when i’m hurt by others.
after years of being an emotional doormat for people,
i’m in a real:

fuck you.”

…type of place and it feels GOOD.

i’m finally able to see how attractive and amazing of a person i am.
let’s see where this “me” takes me.

low-key: nowadays,
i’ll be shocked when people do what i don’t expect them to do.
so if i expect you to be an asshole,
and you do the opposite,
i’ll genuinely wonder if you’re trying to set me up.

  1. In life you will understand that some individuals you can’t give a fuck about. Do that make a bad person? The answer is no.
    If they don’t give about you, you shouldn’t give a fuck about them.

"off topic", trolling, and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
