That’s the advice some random chick gave Emily on VH1’s Love & Hip Hop this week. And despite it being a guilty pleasure for two seasons, it was pretty much the first time I side eyed myself for wasting 24 minutes of my life weekly.
If you haven’t caught the show, Emily is F-A-B-O-L-O-U-S’ sons mother and on again off again girlfriend. This season, she decided to move out and on (kind of) because she’d finally had enough of his scandalous ways (Google Kimbella).
But no one is blind to the truth. She moved out to get his attention. And that she did. He’s currently being a “good boy. “ And of course, she’s ready to go back.
Blah blah blah. Seriously.
Who hasn’t been there? I’m not judging the chick. But I’d love to personally side eye the friend that gave her that horrible advice. Really? Just be patient, he’ll stop cheating at some point and you’ll be the one chick he’ll run to.
Woosah. I can’t even begin to express how ignorant, careless and sloppy that bit of advice was. I don’t know Fab, maybe the dude has changed. But some female was watching that show going through the same thing, thinking – she’s right, I will be patient.
Girl bye. Even if he did change, you have no business waiting for him to change. I have a friend who has been tweeting this regularly – choose the guy that chooses you. Which means, you should not be choosing the man who chose you on Monday night and someone else on Tuesday. You should not choose the man who doesn’t think twice about you when you’re out of sight. He does not deserve you. Let him live his life out in the world chasing his pleasures.
Free yourself from the daily punishment that you put on yourself. Stop worrying about what or who he’s doing. He’s really not worth it and while you’re at it, clean out the house of useless friends.
