After work, I visited my parents for a bit. I sat with my dad and watched Love & Hip Hop. He had no idea why I watched this show, why I liked it so much and quite frankly he had a really difficult time understanding why all the women kept arguing. It’s always a good time with my pops.
As we sat and watched, we talked about my ex. He assured me of their support, he asked if I was doing okay and told me that he knew I’d be fine, that he wasn’t worried. It was a touching moment, I teared up a bit. This moment was immediately overshadowed because he proceeded with the following statement –
“I knew it wasn’t you that did anything wrong (referencing the divorce). I knew in my heart that it wasn’t anything you’d ever do. You’re a good girl. You’re kind, you’re loving, you’re educated; you’re just messy, that’s all.”
I wasn’t sure if I should laugh or be offended. Of course, I laughed. We’re all imperfect people, right? I figured, if my greatest fault is that I’m messy – well I think I I’m in a pretty good position.
Again, it’s always a good time with my pops.
Hope everyone is having a lovely Friday – stay warm LA, it’s cold out there!
