My Dearest Black King,
Earlier in the year, I declared this to be my year of me. A year where promised myself to explore. To grow. Learn. Heal. Remain single and to reach new goals. Typically there is a negative connotation of the idea of someone admitting that they are actively choosing to be selfish but for me it was absolutely imperative that I implemented this into my life.
As a millennial it is nearly impossible to turn on the TV and to see a genuinely positive couple to represent my generation. There are plenty of millennial couples that are in the entertainment biz who drag one another through the social media mud for more followers and likes. We can see that everyday.
Many, many, many, many moons ago I myself got engaged (child, you can read more about dodging that bullet here). Growing up I read all of the grand fairly tales about the day that a man would get down on his knee confessing his love for me, placing a beautiful ring on my hand and would ask for my hand in marriage.
