There is an epidemic that’s been present for quite some time. A disease that creeps up on an individual and allows them to lose sight of themselves. Its an illness that overwhelms a person so much that they mistake negative aspects as positive reinforcements.
This ailment is called STUPID BITCH SYNDROME. To understand this concept one must clear their mind from the fact that the word “bitch” is being used. I want my readers to accept the term as just that. A term. Meaning the name itself shouldn’t afflict harm to any given individual. Its only used when individuals are in fact exhibiting such characteristics that apply to the term. In the excerpts to follow, I will give my readers parts of a guide that I hope will benefit them in ways that are ultimately life changing. The term can be applied to both sexes and is not limited to races or other demographics.
At some point in time we have all experienced this unhealthy situation. Some of us have even gone to the limits of accepting it as part of our everyday lives. So many people are caught up in relationships where ultimately they are not happy. They put up with things that are not healthy for themselves or the relationship period.
So who should read my excerpts on SBS? If you answer yes to at least one of the following questions, you should continue to read.
Have you ever….
looked in the mirror and asked yourself, “What am I doing here?”
Let an issue you know you dont agree with go unspoken?
Had to call on a friend to give you advice? Specifically, the advice you could have given yourself?
Convinced yourself that you were going to leave? Only to find yourself not packing anything
Said you were leaving, left, only to return?
These are only a few examples…probably the most prevalent in not working relationships. The ones that cause the unwanted headaches. As the guide continues to be written you will able to explore many options that define the signs and symptoms of the illness.
You may say to yourself. These are normal problems and that everybody go through things. But who wants to be apart of ‘everybody?’ A person may also say when you are in love you learn to adapt to your partner’s flaws. This is when the early stage of SBS develops.
Why am I writing this? Well, I have noticed within myself and among others that we have found ourselves in unhappy situations that we ultimately have absolute control of. We just don’t get out before its to late. We succumb to our emotions and let them get the best of us. And that’s when we are stuck. Left to do things we know are not acceptable.
I feel it…
Running through my veins
Coursing through my blood
Filling my heart
…….And I can’t quite put a name to it.
It’s a new feeling
It confounds me
Confuses me, all at the same time
Is it okay to feel this way?
Should I feel guilty?
It makes me feel like everything that is good and pure and happy is filling me with this unmistakable
amount of ……..
It almost feels like I should lock it away
And that makes me feel even more guilty
I find myself looking over my shoulder if I smile too big
Paranoid that if someone sees, they may make it go away
I catch myself singing in the shower
…then I stop midsong, scared that if someone hears me
They might take my music away
What is this feeling?
It’s an inch more than happiness
An ounce more than blissful
A mile below perfect
And a teardrop beside content
Even now I’m too afraid to put it to words
But know that I feel it…
I know it’s there
I know it’s real
I can almost taste it
And nobody is going to take it away

The story is T.I. was out with his new bride, Tiny , in Los Angeles when he was pulled over after officers suspected the use of ecstacy. They found Marijuana instead. The newlyweds were immediately arrested.
The punishment is unfortunate as fans were preparing for the release of the Grammy award winner’s 7th studio album. Its entitled “The King Uncaged.” So when will the fans get their hands on the next album? That has yet to be determined.
What has people talking is the fact that his sentence may be a little to harsh. 11 months may not seem like a long time. But after just getting out of prison its really dreadful knowing you’re going back. Looking at the rapper’s career and investment in the community is it necessary to remove him from society?
I don’t believe it is.
Upon his release earlier this year he was spotted at an Alzheimer’s research findraiser. Last week he talked a 24 year old man from jumping off a 22 story building in Atlanta after hearing about it on the radio. Its clear the T.I. is a positive factor in the community.
But can you really call him a role model for the community if he engages in the usage of recreational drugs? That’s a whole different story. Ultimately, I believe its what you do outside your own life that makes the difference. We are all human and no one is perfect. We all have flaws. Some better than others. He wasn’t inflicting harm on anyone or causing an uproar. A little clemency could have been granted.
I don’t condone the fact that he wasn’t wrong. Because the law is what it is, extra precautions should have been taken. It was kind of careless. I agree that since he was caught he shouldn’t just get a slap on the wrist. Maybe more community service or even lesser months would have sufficed. Only considering he is a influential mogul to millions of kids and young adults.
