2012 seems like a tough year for everyone.
I thought it was just me going through the fire.
Shit, at this point I could as well take my clothes off and two step within the flames.
But, it seems that everyone I know is dealing with some issue or another.
Whether it is losing jobs, ending of careers, money issues, love drama, or just finding themselves…
2012 is one for the record books.
I started to wonder if those who are really strong to us that we look up too,
will they admit that they break during the hard times?
I mean, you know I don’t give a damn about telling anyone I’m going through it.
I cry about it, pray about it, and then write about it.
But, who do the strong cry too when they are weakened?
Or, do they even cry at all?
Shit, am I just an emotional bitch?
I had to ask…
Do big boys really cry?
Star Fox has been going through it something HEAVY.
After parading around a veil of “I’m good“, the cover finally blew off.
He moved to ATL and some of his job prospects have ended.
He has also encountered the same ol tired Wolves in Southern fur.
The final straw was he lost his wallet today with all of his money and IDs in it.
He called me and proceeded to break down.
This is a side of Star Fox I never really saw.
He is usually the one that I go to and a complete mess for.
My friend, the strength, actually showed me his weakness…
…and it made it feel relieved.
It wasn’t because I was happy for his trials.
I was happy that he finally showed me that he also hurts.
He allowed me to rescue him and give him a kind word
I let him know that things will get better and we are both in line for an amazing breakthrough.
Even though I am going through it HEAVY,
I still try to remain positive.
Today, I had to turn the tables and be his positive motivating force within his life.
I’m sure this made our friendship a lot stronger.
I started to wonder about those who wear a Juggernaut suit.
On the outside, you command this huge armor of brute strength.
They impress us the way they knock down obstacles with a single blow.
We gravitate to them because they sort of protect us when we lack our own Juggernaut inside.
But once their helmet is off, they are open to attacks that actually weaken them.
Why is it so hard for people to show they are hurting?
And why do they look at us who do as weak and need to be rescued?
Can a nigga have a moment or twenty?!?
I had to wonder if maybe they need to be strong for us.
They need to put on that suit and start swinging when things are looking bad.
I like my Wolf to be strong, but I know he has his moments where he hurts too.
So take off your Juggernaut helmet for a minute…
