I don’t take what I want, I accept what I’m given and I need to change that
Change up the sex talk
I think instead of asking the common questions like whose is it n whats my name. Ima start asking like whats 2+2? Who was the 43rd president? That way not only is it pleasureable but educational

My 9 year old brother had his hood on when we were walking to the store. He looked at me and said
“You think I’d get shot for looking like this?”
That shit made my heart stop, man. I was speechless.
"You have to fight every day to stop censoring yourself. Compromise is beginning to feel a lack of confidence in your innermost thoughts… these innermost thoughts become less and less a part of you and once you lose them then you don’t have anything else."
