The Most Difficult Feeling in the World.

Hey Vulnerabites! Oh how I’ve missed you. Thank you for all the love y’all have shown my guest writers!

Y’all know that I’ve recently rejoined social media  (for…

What If I Never Get Married?

  Hey Vulnerabites, She sent me an email sharing how the transparency in my blog had inspired her own openness. After a few “hard and force you to process your feelings” questions and a couple of rough drafts later, this fell into my inbox. I hope you find her honesty as refreshing as I did….

If You’re Not Married by 28, You’re Screwed.

Hey Vulnerabites, So, I know y’all like when I talk relationships, those posts always drive the most traffic, and not to mention, it came up a number of times in response to my last post asking, “what do you want to read about?” So as per the request of a fellow Vulnerabite, here we go… “A guy…

Should We Expect Our Friends To…

Hey Vulnerabites, So about this time last year in my blog post, Mentally I’ve Left.  I wrote… Me: I’m alright — still at my job. Want to be gone next year. Really doing myself a disservice by being there.  Guess what? I resigned from my job last week.

My Friends Don’t Trust Me

Hey Vulnerabites, So, I went to counseling recently… TEAM VULNERABLE HERE… Yes BLACK WOMEN DO COUNSELING TOO! Rolling my eyes at everyone who just withdrew my “Strong Black Women” card! But why did I even just do that? I just countered my efforts to live emotionally healthy with a side note that ‘y’all probably think…

How Facebook Helped Me Lie.

Dear Vulnerabites, I really wasn’t ok, but I wanted to give the perception that I was. In fact, I was scrolling through Google deciding which “how to commit suicide” link I wanted to click on. I was searching for a sure way to cement my attempted overdose. I did not want my stomach being pumped…

How Skydiving Changed My Life.

Hey Vulnerabites… WHERE IS THE DOOR?!?!? What if I change my mind? WHERE IS THE !@$%@$@ DOOR!?!?! No door… just something that looks like a thick plastic blind that goes up and down. Calm down honey! Whhooo Sssaaaa. The aircraft is lifting off the runway and I’m laughing hysterically — not out of excitement… just in between the…

He’s Just Not That Into You.

Hey Vulnerabites… take it from me, the girl who has been dumped in ALL of her relationships… I’m not even kidding… lol (that was a very awkward lol). Whether or not I deserved to be dumped in some of those relationships, now that’s a different story. Am I the only one who’s ever been dumped…

I weighed 200 pounds.

Hey Vulnerabites! Just like that… I saw the numbers rolling onward and upward…157…165…174… 181… What the ?#$%@^ Ok, so I never actually hit 200lbs… but I was well on my way. This was the heaviest I had been in my entire life! (I’m 5’7 if that helps you get a better picture). Look! I grew…

Don’t bring porn to Cuba.

No, seriously Vulnerabites! This was part of my introduction as I sat in the clouds filling out my customs form before arriving in this land ‘forbidden to Americans.’ Among the list of things I was asked to declare, right next to live animals (like, do people claim their pets?)… there it was PORNOGRALIA… and in…
