So for those of you who know me and have been reading for quite some time now, you know when I’m going through a rough patch I don’t hold back and I share my thoughts and feelings the best way I know how, through writing to my blog family! I love you all so much and appreciate all of your likes, comments, and continuous support. That being said, yes I’m yet again going through a rough time with a few things, but with the men in my life, I think I’ll be okay.
I’ve mentioned this before, but I have a younger brother (who thinks he’s my older brother most of the time and with his height, believe me, you would agree) and I have a cousin, who I’ve grown up with like an older brother. I also grew up with many male cousins and have been blessed with a dad who has allowed me to live what I would call a life of luxury for the past twenty-two years.
If you don’t know me well through my past posts, let me just say that I am a very emotional girl and I’m proud of it. I’ve never been one to hold back in regards to showing my feelings and from a young age found myself being able to express my emotions better through my writing than my words.
Whenever something has been eating me up inside, have it be school, family or friend problems, or heartbreaks I know that no matter what my brothers will always be there. Today was no exception. I was overwhelmed with so many things and of course, my younger brother could tell right off the bat that something was wrong and went out of his way to try and make me smile and laugh. I know, it sounds like we have an amazing sibling dynamic right? We do fight sometimes, but for the most part, we’ve bonded a lot over the past few years and I love my brother. For those of you who are curious as to whether he was successful in making me smile, yes, but he also didn’t miss the few tears that trickled down my cheeks either.
As for my other brother, no one knows me better than him. We grew up closer than anyone I know, he knows me probably better than I know myself and whenever I send out a distress call, he’s right there with me. It’s almost like my problems are his and I don’t know what I would do without him.
I guess tonight my take home message is for the ladies,
Look at the men in your life. Look at the way they treat you, talk to you, take care of you and let that be an example of what you deserve. Honey, you deserve the world and all that’s in it and if a gentleman comes along that will spoil you like your dad, care for you and love you and protect you like your brothers, give him a chance.
I’m a very lucky girl and yes, I may not have a lot of girlfriends, but I have the support of amazing men who I know will never break my heart and I hope that those of you out there acknowledge the love and support of the men in your life.
To the fathers, brothers, cousins, uncles out there…
Thank you for setting an example of what a good man should be like and letting us know how we deserve to be treated and how much love and support we have around us always.
Ciao for now dolls! xoxo
