LOVE WEEK: A Little Lovin'

Let's Talk About It, Shall We?

In the midst of a world changing right before our eyes and trying to master each and every one of our life goals, it seems silly to think that whenever my friends and I meet up we end up in a long "love iz lame" or "ugh, boyz suck" conversation. All one person has to do is complain about a their last date or a misconstrued text, and the night becomes a full-on Iyanla Fix My Life therapy session.

We talk about work, we talk about our goals, we talk about our self-image, but something about love always strikes a chord, and I don't know why that is. Could the old song be right? Is love what makes the world go 'round? What I do know is that it's taken me a long time to say this out loud. Greater than my fear of not understanding everything about love is my fear of admitting I want to know. I feel like I've been whispering this my whole life, but fine, I'll shout it: I want to know what the hell is the deal with love.

"Greater than my fear of not understanding everything about love is my fear of admitting I want to know."

I don't care if it makes me look silly, like a 12-year-old girl obsessed with fairytales. Why is that even a thing I have to be worried about? Why is an interest in love seen as inherently female, and even further, why then does that make it something not to be valued? I am an accomplished adult woman who plans to continue knocking down every single one of my goals—oh, and also, I want to talk about tingly butterfly feelings and whether or not they mean anything.

Love has come up too many times in my life (especially in the past 4 years), and I can't not stare it down and ask it why it keeps knocking at my door. If you're one of my longtime Internet girlfriends you know that I'm very much an over sharer. In between my thoughts on wide-leg jeans and matte lipstick, you'll find real life sh*t sprinkled in, because, well, I'm a real person. I promise, I still have many thoughts on matte lipstick, but for right now I'm going to rely on my good sis Rihanna and admit—it must be love on the brain.

This week is LOVE WEEK on I'll be talking about love, relationships, self-worth, and omg, sex. Stay tuned, bbs!
