I’m tired, I’m tight, I’m weary

I’m tired of smiling when I don’t have to. 

I’m tired of being strong when I don’t want to. 

I’m tired of being nice but still get disrespected. 

I’m tight because the bills outweighs the biweekly pay.

I’m tight because my intelligence is constantly being questioned. 

I’m tight that my loved ones are gone and I know that it’s a road we all have to face. 

I’m weary because of the ugly ways of our society.

I’m weary because I can’t protect my son from everything. 

I’m weary because things will Never be the same. 

However,

I’m not weak. I’m not a quitter. I’m wakened. I’m a believer. I still see beauty. 

Thank you!


I’m so grateful for those who follow me on social media. I have hopes and dreams that are bigger than me and support truly helps during the times of uncertainty. Thank you so much!!! -Nicole Cherise ❤️

I know it’s Ugly but I can still find beauty

Every day, we are given daily reminders of how cruel and ugly things of this world are. When I was a child, my parents shielded from some things and let me be a child. Now, with the advancement of our youth, it’s hard to NOT explain to them the cruelness that awaits them. I’m saddened that I have to express to my son that to some people he will be considered a menace, some may be jealous, friends will stab you in the back, employment will expect you to work extra hard against your counterparts, and I can go on. However, I can’t focus only on the ugliness. There IS beauty.

Beauty is in the eye of a baby, who is precious and pure. The laughter of children on a playground that gives so much joy to an adult heart. The genuine love and support from your loved ones. The butterfly feeling you get from your significant other. The feeling of inner peace when you pray or meditate in your calm place. That feeling of goodness after helping those who are less fortunate. 
The world isn’t perfect, especially the people living in it. We have to decide how we choose to live. Do we want to concentrate only on the ugly? Or could we make things less tainted and paint a better picture? Something to seriously think about, especially now.

When your right hand goes left


Hi friends! Where is the love when this takes place? I feel, that once your significant other stops believing in you, your relationship is in deep trouble. 
Is it possible to come back from this? Possibly. However, it’s one of those things when your SO pretty much has both feet out of the door. Some may feel what’s the point? Some may choose to work on it. I guess it all depends on what “believing in you” includes. 
Does Believing in you, refers to your dreams? Is it in reference to trust? Or is it You as a whole? The unfortunate thing is, you may question, are they truly what you thought? Why in your darkest moments, they aren’t holding it down? 
I’m sure it can be troubling, but you do have to think, did your actions over time make them feel this way? People get tired of being disappointed. Sometimes, we are so wrapped into ourselves and we don’t realize that our SO’s are unhappy. We can’t always play the victim or get defensive when we are truly at Fault. 
My advice for those who may feel this way is: evaluate yourself first. If you can honestly say that you gave it your all and was a good partner to your SO then definitely reevaluate your relationship. However, if you know you have been selfish, then maybe you should try showing them how you are better rather than just talking.

Real friends?

It’s truly sad when friendships end over petty drama and a big ego. 

We are human, therefore, we are going to disagree. Yes, some can go below the belt but never should it get to a point that communication stops. It makes me wonder, was the friendship genuine? Was it one-sided? Or just convient for one? 

I’ve been there before. It does hurt but you will be ok. Time waits for no one and life goes on. Keep your head up and keep it moving. Surround yourself with genuine people who love you.
