TALK TUESDAYS: POWER OF THE P

2 comments
HOW IS MY BLOG FAM DOING TODAY?? Well I apologize for the late post had to tend to some business today. Today I will make this short and sweet!

Now I guess you are wondering what this topic is all about? Well it's about friendships vs. relationships. Yeah I know what you're thinking since when do these two relationships go head to head. Well speaking from experience more often than not!

Here is the scenario: You are a guy/girl and you have your close knit girl/guy friend(s)...yes just that girls/guys who are friends. You've known them or her/him for 10+ years...never dated, never had sex, never kissed...strictly good friends. A Woman/Man comes along that sweeps you off your feet and you end up becoming an item; she/he doesn't like your girl/boy friend because you guys spend too much time together. You...

A) Tell your woman/man she is trippin' and this girl/guy is just a friend get over it or get out
B) Cut your friend out of your life
C) Drop your woman/man no need for explanations she clearly doesn't respect your friendships or you
D) Figure out a way for you to not jeopardize either relationship (Is that even possible?)

Now most people would say the answer to this question is pretty straight forward, but I beg to differ. The power of the putang/penis can wipe out a good friendship in an instant. Leaving that true friend hanging. What's a guy or girl to do in this situation? Talk to me Blog fam!!

TALK TUESDAYS: YOUR GIRL IS A...

1 comments
I THINK THAT EVERYONE HAS BEEN IN THIS SITUATION ONCE OR TWICE. A GOOD FRIEND OF YOURS HAS DECIDED TO PAIR UP WITH SOMEONE WHO IS NO GOOD. EVERYONE AROUND THEM SEES THAT THIS PERSON IS NO GOOD AND YOU BEING THE CLOSEST TO THIS PERSON IS STUCK BETWEEN A ROCK AND A CEMENT BLOCK.

DO YOU TELL THE PERSON THAT THEIR SIGNIFICANT OTHER IS NO GOOD OR DO YOU SUPPORT THEM AND LET THEM FIND OUT FOR THEMSELVES? MANY WOULD ARGUE IT IS THEIR DUTY AS A GOOD FRIEND TO MAKE SURE THAT THEIR FRIEND DOES NOT GET HURT AND TELL THEM STRAIGHT UP, HOWEVER, MANY PEOPLE WHO HAVE DONE THIS BEFORE END UP LOSING A FRIEND IN THE PROCESS OR DAMAGING THEIR FRIENDSHIP. OTHERS WOULD ARGUE THAT YOU SHOULD LET YOUR FRIEND GO THROUGH THIS PROCESS SO THAT THEY CAN LEARN WHAT TO LOOK FOR SORT OF ON THE LEVEL OF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW HOT FIRE IS UNTIL YOU GET BURNED.

HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE BEEN IN THIS SITUATION? WHAT DID YOU DO? I THINK IT DEPENDS ON THE SITUATION AND THE FRIEND. SOME PEOPLE ARE SO STUBBORN AND "IN LOVE" THAT THEY REFUSE TO BELIEVE ANYONE AND IN THAT CASE THEY NEED TO LEARN THE HARD WAY, BUT I THINK IT IS SO HARD TO TRY AND BE A GOOD FRIEND IN THIS SITUATION AND KNOW WHAT BEING A GOOD FRIEND MEANS. WHAT DO YOU THINK? TALK TO ME!! I THOUGHT I WOULD LEAVE YOU WITH A SONG THAT FITS THIS TOPIC PERFECTLY! ENJOY!
