…life from my perspective
Love is hard and my skin is my most beautiful physical attribute. Anyone who has ever known me and is no stranger to love knows both of these things to be true; anything to the contrary is bullshit. To learn more about myself and to be the “best me I can be”, I’ve decided to document my thoughts and feelings as part of my own experiment to see how “therapeutic” and “healing” keeping an online diary can be. To that end, my entries will be unadulterated, controversial, intellectual, contradictory, crass, humorous, refined, immature, ignorant and honest. I think it’s time for me to move beyond the indifferent, elusive, strong-willed, rational and independent person I’ve convinced everyone to believe that I am; I’m trying to grow so shedding layers is required. Granted, these personality traits help define my character but do not completely explain who Nikkia “really is” nor do they lend any insight into the woman I desire to become. This is an introspective look at my life and a learning exercise in embracing my life’s journey to date. It is also my intention to become a better writer and a bit more tech savvy by the time I abandon this project and move on to the next popular thing.
True love is all I REALLY want but before I can ask others to be giving of themselves I have to be honest about where I am and what I have to offer. This is the beginning of the end of the old me.
