I walked into work this morn. Before I even got to my office, I was told “OMG, Did you know Corey Haim died?!?!” To which I answered “Was it a drug overdose?”. She said “yeah”.
“Eh” was all I could answer.
What a cliché. I hate to say it, but c’mon ppl.
Don’t these ppl have ppl? I mean, I know I have more than enough ppl who
butt into voice their concerns about my life. They’re called friends & family. & I’ve got a huuuuge family.
Someone had to have known there were probs.
This brings me to the ‘Precious’ girl. I’m glad she’s comfortable w/ herself. Props to her for loving herself & her confidence is a strong force. She should love herself; she’s a talented young lady.
However, she’s got to have family that should be concerned about her health. It’s one thing to be a bit overweight. But I think she’s obese, which means health probs. Plus, she’s black, so the likelihood of her having or developing diabetes is great. Not to mention high cholesterol & blood pressure.
Not pressure her, but encourage her. Remember, I believe in moving towards something, not away from something. But I think she’s got the right attitude. Here’s something she did say:
“I love the way I look. I’m fine with it. And if my body changes, I’ll be fine with that.”
So, I respect that she understands that loving herself is not related to the physical, but rather to who she is as a person. But at the same time, I want her to not have what ends up being stupid/silly complications that wouldn’t have disrupted her life if she’d monitor her blood sugar, or cholesterol level.
I’m not really upset w/ Gabby Sidibe.
I’m just sick of ppl not being there for other ppl.
When I see a kid riding shotgun w/ no seat belt, it infuriates me. That kid HAS their own person to watch over them, & they still aren’t doing it! We are a societal group. Meant to be social creatures.
