#Girlkeepgoing: Transparency— “I couldn’t release the book, until I was done being bitter.”

Girl, Keep Going: Healing is now in Session drops 9.19.19. People were asking what was taking so long. But, honestly, I couldn’t release the book, until I was done being bitter. Society pretends that bitterness isn’t a normal reaction to being hurt and that’s a lie. I was supposed to start a family with this man and we’re no longer together and I’m supposed to not become bitter? Yeah, that’s cute (sarcasm). I was so damn angry but it was really just grief. I felt mistreated & bamboozled. What the…

Before, I would give it a half ass try, end up being in a relationship before it’s solidified, and it would eventually blow up.  These days, I’m sticking to my guns.
