Stop Asking Me to Be the Better Person

C: I sent you the email because I thought you were the bigger person…

Me: Well I’m not the bigger person because I’m tired

T.Lanette

Well, I’m not the bigger person because I’m tired. I told her to send that “Bigger Person” email to the man who wrote the hostile email. That’s right in this year and a half of Covid19, I’m tired of worrying about other peoples’ feelings. When will someone be concerned about my feelings? In fact, when will someone stick up for Black Women? If you come for me, I will come back at you with both barrels of petty. I AM TIRED!

I’ve survived too much this year to let anyone go past my boundaries. I was blessed to wake up after 3 heart procedures. I will not ruin my cardiologists’ beautiful work by taking on nonsense stress.

From this point on, you need to earn my “better person” version. Otherwise, you will get my petty side. You have been warned.
