Hello there, and much love to all y’all. This is your gentleman about town Ne-Yo just checkin’ in, seein’ if all my folks are alright, and also bringing a few words of my admitted, limited wisdom. The topic is relationships: the successful, the unsuccessful and everything in between.
I don’t know it all and I don’t pretend to, but in some cases and instances I may know more than you. And what kind of gentleman would I be if I didn’t share what little knowledge I’ve obtained on a particular topic with the people I love??
Now I’ve only been an occupant of this planet for 29 years, but in that time I’ve seen the sunshine and the rain. I am a man that has gone thru the many levels of what it is to be a man. From the selfishness and greed that we as a species suffer from, to the realization that the world doesn’t revolve around me and I’m NOT supposed to just get my way, to the being angry at that fact, to eventually accepting it and learning that it doesn’t mean that I can’t be happy. Because ultimately that’s what everybody wants. Be it ‘for life’, or ‘only for a night’, everybody wants to be happy. I think happiness starts with figuring out which one YOU want. If it’s ‘only for a night’, don’t run around getting into serious relationships, knowing all you’re gonna do is cheat. If it’s ‘for life’, understand what that means and be very careful in your selection process. Gotta make sure the other person is thinking the same way you are. In theory this should be very easy to do, in reality we lie to ourselves more than we do to other people.
Being honest with YOU is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, or another person. That honesty clears your vision. Now you know who you are, what you’re into, and where your head is at, thus making it a little easier to look for what you want.This is a topic that’ll take much time to discuss fully, and I don’t have a lot of free time as you all know. So let’s talk again soon. In the meantime, start with being honest with YOU, at the very least it’s a step in the right direction.
See ya on the road!!!
