Don’t Heal Em’…They Don’t Wanna be Healed! #TristaDaniell

Not every person desires healing. Some prefer to be wounded because wounds create sympathy and sympathy, attention. The addiction to attention in this world is such that some will go the the extreme to ensure attention remains on them - even if that means suffering. For some, the pleasure is in the attention that's showered … Continue reading Don’t Heal Em’…They Don’t Wanna be Healed! #TristaDaniell

#StopTheGuiltTrips by #TristaDaniell

The ONLY people who get upset with you for reserving your energy to invest in your goals are those who, more often than not, failed to reserve energy to invest in their own. Envy and insecurity manifest in many forms. Pay attention. You ever wanna know if someone really supports you, listen to what they … Continue reading #StopTheGuiltTrips by #TristaDaniell

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
