We care…for a moment.

Your highs and lows are just that - yours. People will celebrate with you, for a moment. People will mourn with you, for a second. But, quickly, they'll move on....and they'll hope you do too...(or atleast shut up talking about it). Don't take it personal. Such is life. Most of us don't have the bandwidth … Continue reading We care…for a moment.

Kindness should be…earned?

I've always been a gentle person when it comes to dealing with other people. I know what it's like to feel unwanted, tolerated, and shunned so I make it my duty to treat others as kind as I possibly can because I might be the only kindness they experience that day. These days, people celebrate … Continue reading Kindness should be…earned?

F*CK “FRIENDS”

Can I get honest with yall for a minute? I've been that socially awkward girl as long as I can remember. These days, being awkward is like a badge of honor, everyone wants to be different...showcase their quirk...but social anxiety is nothing to showcase. It's a frustratingly isolating experience that you desperately wish to conquer, … Continue reading F*CK “FRIENDS”

Are we loving or are we lying?

How simple it would be If love were free But alas, It costs So much. We are desperate for love, because we do not know Love. We have an idea of what we think it is, but that idea rarely permeates our realities. To us, love is equated with "feelings" - if she/he makes me … Continue reading Are we loving or are we lying?

Shut Up! (Stop begging people to love you)

I have a really bad habit of talking until I'm blue in the face in an effort to give people chances to "fix it"....whatever it is. I don't know why I do this. I find it's counterproductive because as long as I'm talking, it means I still care.... Except, you get to a point where … Continue reading Shut Up! (Stop begging people to love you)

Say Lil Momma’…..#TristaDaniell #FreeWrite

Somebody just "say lil mamma"d me across a parking lot. Flailing his arms to get my attention. Yelling like a fool in distress. I walked on. I'm not a cat, I don't respond to cat calls. But....he persisted. "SAY LIL MAMMA" "SHAWTAY, YOU HEAR ME!" But I don't. I quicken my step. Refusing to accepting … Continue reading Say Lil Momma’…..#TristaDaniell #FreeWrite

Insecure….

....some of y'all wear y'all insecurities like skin....the sad thing is you cover it up with assholism and pettiness thinking you're fooling everyone into believing you're happy - you're not. Happy people don't go out of their way to downplay someone else. Happy people don't get upset when others celebrate themselves and/or their accomplishments. Happy … Continue reading Insecure….

True Love…

So many  who believe they're in love are (in reality)  in really strong lust.  Love is about the other person. Lust is all about self. Know the difference.  -Trista Daniell  @Trista.Daniell (IG)  @EnTheosTR (T) http://www.TristaDaniell.com 

A Love Story x11

 I strayed often, but I always went back. Except, 
this time when I returned to reclaim 
my love she laughed - hysterically!  and responded 
with disgust,  
"Stop expecting good women 
to pick up the pieces of your broken heart."

 ... ...and I never had the pleasure of loving her again. Love. -Trista Daniell @EnTheosTR (T) @Trista.Daniell (IG) … Continue reading A Love Story x11

A Love Story x6

You asked me to prove my love. So, I plunged my hand into my chest, ripped my heart from my soul, and handed it to you with my last breath. Still! it wasn't enough. Love. -Trista Daniell
