I don't play disrespect. I don't play dishonesty. I don't play disloyal. And I don't play sticking around to see whether or not you want to learn how to be any of the above. If it's not already present, I'm already a thing of the past. I won't settle for less than I deserve. Call it what you want. I call it standards.
I like much in this quotation ...not the least the part about the crown. After a while I looked in the mirror and realized ..wow after all those hurts, scars and bruises, after all of those trials, I really made it through. I did it. I survived that which was supposed to kill me. So I straightened my crown ..and walked way like a boss.
