Although we miss her musically, Keri Hilson is not leaving us out here high and dry. Every now and then she jumps on social media to spit a couple facts that always has a lot of women snapping their fingers and chanting “yassss”. Most folks would say she’s preaching a good word…no pulpit. Lol!! Check out the latest words she shared about NOT putting up with men and not being a ride or die chick.
It seems a lot of men are looking for the woman who can tolerate the most bullsh*t. God FORBID she has a requirement for you to treat her right…listen to her…compromise…keep your promises and act on solutions…or have the nerve to have a deal breaker? Oh no!! You will not trample on my heart or feelings & keep ME. I ain’t no ride or die. Yall can have that.
I tried it once. Know what I got? BOLDER bullsh*t. No matter what I said/did as a consequence, the ultimate action of giving him another chance each time I was disrespected sent him the wrong message about me. “Weak ass b*tch” was all HE saw. Never again. I love me too much.
The whole ride or die concept rubs me wrong. Love is not a contest to see how much pain I can withstand. How many burdens of your boyhood I can carry for your comfort, despite mine. How many untrustworthy situations I can jump over, with an uncertain hope that MAYBE you’ll grow out of putting us in them. How many of your satisfaction I can facilitate while mine are left unaddressed. QUEENS don’t enter that sh-t. We gone get to this finish line with equal effort.
Over these years, I’ve done a lot of soul searching. A LOT. My pain has brought me so much compassion, wisdom, maturity, focus, clarity, and a sense of responsibility to be a great human of great purpose. I care about how God sees me. I want Him to look down & be proud.
Yeah I’m ALL FOR riding thru financial, emotional, spiritual lows…all the ups & downs of life. We gone ride. But these days “ride or die” seems to have taken on a new meaning…of men expecting women to accept infidelity & inappropriate behavior.
Ladies is she preaching a word or what? Do you agree?
