People asking why I always said “Life isn’t fair; that’s the bad news and the good news”
Get Used to Getting Used:
The Best Sees the Best:
To most people, the saying “to use someone” carries a negative connotation, but I don’t see it that way. To “mis”, “over” or “ab” use someone is negative. To use is necessary and if you can’t be used..then you’re useless.
THINK it SAY it Do it:
“I pride myself in being able to recognize the best in others. I see it as a testament of my taste level. I can’t stress enough the importance of surrounding yourself with energy that supports your goals… There have been times when I’ve had to separate myself from certain family members, childhood friends, and people in general who bought negative energy into my life. It is not always easy, but very necessary. If you know you’re the best, it makes sense for you to surround yourself with the best. NO EXCEPTIONS!”
“I get a lot of backlash for saying what I’m going to do. I love saying what I think because it keeps me accountable. Once I say it, I fell like I HAVE TO DO IT and I LOVE proving to every one that I can! It’s like using public opinion as a motivational tool instead of it’s common role of degradation. If I kept it to myself at any point, I could easily give up on my goal because no one would have known what I was trying to do. People who say what they think and then do what they say normally get what they want out of life”.

Never underestimate anyone.
I understand that your father was absent in your life. However, don’t make Father’s Day a focus on your Mother. That day had come and went.
I understand what it’s like, living with a single parent that cares more about your well-being. I was raised under a single parent. When I say this, people would credit my mother for my brought up so well, and I have to say, “thanks, but I spent my life with my dad.”
This isn’t a post about him, but this is a post to inform you that some men have done this deal when the mothers don’t want the job. And for you to say, “fuck my daddy” on a public forum on Father’s Day is kind of tasteless. Not because you don’t have a right to say it, you just picked the wrong day to say it.
Every Mother’s Day, I say Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers and never say a word about mine (who is no longer on this realm). I do this because there were women who stepped in and made sure that my head is on straight in the absence of my mother. I had Black women that became my sisters and sub-mothers. Without them, I probably wouldn’t have a balance view on women.
So, to the Fatherless Children, if your father didn’t step up, it’s up to you to make sure that the pattern doesn’t repeat in your life. You can start with this:
So to the fatherless children, I want y’all to know I see you, I understand. However, let the men have their day and show respect to all men that chose to be Fathers.
Oh, and if you know a kid, and they don’t know their dad, do me a favor and make sure you are there for them. You can change impact change in their lives if you really want to.
And remember, you maybe the child of your Father, but you are not their choices.
where do you guys go for financial advice?

Here are a few resources:
Basically, the more you read, the better you’ll have an understanding how money works.
I can’t advice on credit cards, but I can tell you this: until you have a proper education about money from people who’s been through it (not your broke uncle), it’s best to hold out.
