Let’s Avoid Tragic Situations


In light of the tragic event that took place in New Winthropes (may her soul rest in peace) I think it is important that I say a few things. I don’t know the circumstance or have any information relating to the matter but I believe that there are other potential “timebombs” waiting to explode and if something isn’t done to defuse these situations, we will continue to mourn as a nation.

Fellas, you are considered nothing more than a “PUNK” if you are in the practice of putting your hands on women. First of all, that’s someone’s child who you did not help to bring into this world. There is no rule, law or principle that gives you the right to abuse or take the life of the person you are in a relationship with. I don’t care what the situation is, if you submit to your anger instead of embodying the characteristics that deem you a “MAN” and see it fit to walk away or handle the situation without violence, I strongly advise that you leave people woman pickney alone!

Don’t get me wrong, I am fully aware that some women are malicious and will go above and beyond to push you to the point where you want to knock all the hair off of their heads and in some cases use violence as a mean of making it clear that you wear the pants in the relationship but the reality is, once you submit to your anger, there is no telling how tragic things might end up. As hard as it may be, the best thing to do is to remove yourself from the situation until you are in the right frame of mind to deal with the issue. One of the hardest things to do is to walk away from a heated argument but at the end of the day, I guarantee that you will not live to0 regret it.

Ladies, there are many of you who are currently being abused whether it’s it be physically, verbally or even sexually and remain quiet as a means of protecting your lover or your relationship. Some of you remain in secrecy simply because you feel embarrassed by what others might say if they find out what’s going on. I really don’t know what it’s going to take for those of you who have adapted to such ill-treatment but for those of you who have fresh relationships or are thinking about getting into one, you need to look out for early signs of abuse and either put a stop to it or tek weh yourself from the situation.  It’s time to wake up and stop allowing people to feel as though they have the right to do as they wish to you simply because they are contributing to your life. It’s 2019 and this controlling, immature behavior needs to come to an end. If you let it get out of hand, it can potentially cost you your life.

If you’re currently in an abusive relationship, do what’s best and seek help. Also, to friends and family members who are aware of these situations, you need to stop turning a blind eye or say things like “you’re not getting involved in couples drama” because you’re the ones who will hurt the most if the situation becomes tragic. Especially, if you knew what was going on and didn’t do anything to help.
