youngblackandvegan:

idk i ‘ve just never been the one to compare myself to other women

i just stay in my lane

i feel like i got the cute-chubby-chocolate-short-chick game on lock lol

i’m quite fond of me as i am

i wasn’t made to be a model, so i wouldn’t compare myself to one

i wasn’t made to be a video vixen,…

Letting go doesn’t mean you stop caring for someone; it’s just realizing that the only thing you truly have control over is yourself. After a while, liking someone who doesn’t like you back gets old. Messing with someone who doesn’t have the same intentions as you gets old. It’s life. You just can’t force anything on anyone but yourself. Take control of what you have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t.

Congratulations, you’re alive.
If that’s not something to smile about,
then I don’t know what is.
