Thank the Lord for Issa, Cardi, Kandi, and Quad.
So the last two weeks have been crazy.
Between the Anti-Christ getting elected and me being robbed at gunpoint, slightly overwhelmed is an understatement when it came to how I was feeling. I'm a silly person in general, but because of what had been going on, the situations required me to be serious, be more aware, and have my guard up all the time.
One day I was laying in bed after I got off the phone with my insurance claim person and I was just tired of adulting.
Completely over it.
I felt like I needed my brain to calm down, so I got on the internet.
Mr. World Premiere is one of my favorite sites because all the ratchet shows live there. When I went to the site, the first show that popped up was Married to Medicine. I hadn't watched that show since the first season, so I didn't know what to expect, but at that point, I was down for whatever.
Five hours later, I've watched all the episodes of Married to Medicine, all of LAHHH reunion, one episode of Real Housewives of ATL, the first episode of LAHHNY, and I catch up on Insecure.
By the end of Insecure, I was almost in tears. I needed those laughs. It wasn't until then that I realized that I had just been going and going and going. I hadn't given myself time to process all that had happened.
I firmly believe that God covered me, but I also know that I needed to feel all the feelings I had without dismissing them, which my ratchet TV binge helpd me process.
So I encourage you to give yourself some time. Sometimes things happen back to back to back and we feel like we have to deal with it all at once and we don't give ourselves time to process our feelings. You deserve a moment to evaluate your mental health and make sure you're good, so take it.
I felt so much better and I've been able to hold on to that feeling. Don't get me wrong, I'm not done dealing with either situation. Trump will be an ongoing problem and while they found my car, it has some body damage that I have to get fixed.(S/N- if you want to help me with my insurance deductible, click here http://www.gofundme.com/30t01bk)
While I'm adulting in those situations, I'm going to give myself space to breathe and relax. It's all about balance. As the great Charlemagne once said, "Ratchetness and Righteousness is the Yin and The Yang of life. You need a healthy balance of both."
