I saw this statement on my timeline:
“everyone u meet comes with baggage…find someone who loves u enough to unpack it with u…”
Let me first define the word baggage: emotional burdens from one’s past. Burdens infer an excess so focus on that.
Now by first glance this statement seems innocent but it is not. It’s a cop-out!
Disclaimer: I am not saying that everyone ends up with someone romantically because I don’t believe that everyone receives love in the same manner nor are you able to control another’s actions. I am saying that to make a blanket statement that everyone has baggage is bullshiiii. Not everyone has allowed someone else from their past to control their lives in the present. Are there many people who allow others to control their lives like a Pimp controls a Hoes’ life? You bet but everyone nah!! We are not all on the same playing field when it comes to love and life and maybe admitting such would drive us to unpack and deal with our own baggage before heaping such a burden on someone else..but let me flow on……
Many folks have tried to read my life and still don’t know a thing. I live a good life and more love would be welcomed but I choose not to deal with the 10 year old mentalities of those who seem to love to come in my direction. I”ll wait. I have decided to hold firm in my position but….if I allow an unguarded minute of idleness to creep in truly I could find myself in an unhealthy baggage-filled situation. No, I’m not perfect but I know what I do and do not want. I know that what I want exist and is right & does not entail baggage. I guess some of you will be saying aww you do have baggage by saying you don‘t do drama, you must have had some! Yes, there have been a couple people in my life who have tried to heap their drama upon me but I just wouldn’t let them. That’s not me. Nope, Cuzzin, I push that shiiiii back. I push it back due to good old fashioned wisdom and my innate understanding of how a certain type of people roll. I’ll always choose peace, contentment, and happiness everyday of the week and not invite unhappiness, craziness, and lack of contentment into it ever. I do want to have someone special but if that means I do not end up having love in the manner as I desire then so be it. Drama and baggage I do not do. Maybe, if more folks stood firm they would find out that baggage is not synonymous with being human. Humans are blank pallets with the potential to choose to do amazing things..believe that.
When I think about it, some folks need to admit that there is no badge of honor to admit you have baggage. What you are saying is "I didn’t take control of my life, I’m not emotionally stable as an adult aka grown, and did not take the time to make me better from the negative experiences of my past." Also, that they have chosen to continually relive day after day. That’s insanity doing the same things the same way expecting a different result. Too many people jump from one bed to the next and they wonder why they have baggage and insecurity? Too many people are still living like they are in middle school way of thinking in that they own someone else or having tantrums because they are unable to get their way. Those are some of the main reasons why there is a high incidence of stalking and all manner of emotional immature moves in today’s society. I’m digressing…..
All I can say is if you believe you have baggage just tell me upon coming to my front door so I can better direct you to someone who embraces such bullshiii. Me,I’m looking for the person to come to my door who has let go of the baggage and is ready to live a beautiful life. Oh it could be ever, ever so beautiful!! That person I will welcome in my life whole-heartedly and openly so we can build a better now & future together because though what I desire may not be readily available in large numbers I know they exist because I exist.
So pack light
