Diary of a Mad Black Woman

I could never understand how Helen went back and took care of Charles in that movie after he treated her so badly.  I always said that I could never do that!  Well, I need to retract that statement.  I understand why she did it now but on a much smaller scale, of course.

My soon-to-be ex-husband's furnace went out at his house.  It is around 20 degrees right now in Michigan. He asked if he could stay with me and our kids for 2 days because it is frigid in his house.  My first instinct was to say (in my Whitney Houston voice) HELL TO THE NO! But the woman that I really am said that there is no way I can turn my back on the man that is the father of my daughter.  I let him stay.  I feel good about it because he no longer control me for good or for bad.  I made the resolve to be the woman I truly am and help another human being in their time of need. I will not let someone else make me compromise my standards or principles again.

This was my victory!!

  1. Yay! proud of you girl. It's a good feeling when we let go of "who the world wanted us to be" to become "who God wants us to be". I know exactly where you are, i've been there and i'm telling you it's exuberating and liberating all at the same time.
