My mom is such a mom. I needed her opinion on something, she says it's fine. I ask my friend and sister: "You talked to fast, you said ummmm a lot. Stop getting off subject." *sigh* I though my mom was not one of those types of mom that were like you did it so its brilliant.

God really does work in mysterious ways. I have mentioned my dad and I aren't talking because I had a blowup with his wife. I don't think I have ever said how I have never met my dad's dad or anyone from that side. Growing up I would ask about it now and then but got vague responses so I got the hint it was taboo subject and stopped asking. Some years ago I did get my grandfather's name from my dad. I couldn't find much on Internet. Then maybe two years ago I got my dad to tell me some names of his dad's dad and brothers. Come to find out the name I had was a shorter version of my grandfather's first name so that's why he wasn't showing up. . I was hurt to find out my grandfather and great grandmother both died while I was in my late teens early 20s and had never contacted me although I went to college in the town they live in. But then I don't know if they were told not to. Anyway I have been doing a lot of genealogy research and I had this big blank. I wanted to contact my family but was afraid how my dad would react so I didn't. Since now he is pissed at me anyway I thought why not? I found an old listed address for the family home but wasn't sure if the family still lived there. So today I drove to that town for my cousin's baby shower. Her mom and my dad are siblings but have dif fathers. Afterwards I decided to look for the address. I had trouble because the street name changed over the years. I talked myself in and out of continuing to look. But some older people in the neighborhood pointed out the house to me. I went up to the door and knocked. A lady came and I asked if it was the Lewis family home. She said yes and I told her my name and I was ***** Lewis's granddaughter. She lit up. Turned out she is my cousin. I also met my aunt by marriage and another cousin. They hugged me. We exchanged numbers and they told me I am welcome any time and they want to hang out with me. She said it made her day to meet me.
My grandma is deceased and I'm not going to tell her sister I went over there because I have asked her about relatives before and she said "we don't talk about him or you ask too many questions". I don't know what happened between my grandparents who never married and frankly I don't care. It's the past. We're alive. They're dead and I'm not going to be holding to other people's grudges that should have been buried with them a long time ago. Anyway I couldn't stay long because I was headed out of town. I'm very excited about meeting my uncles, aunts, cousins and getting to know them, see pictures. I thanked them for being so kind. I'm sure it must have been a big shock for a relative you didn't know about to show up at your door.

Dear Mods,

I was reading an article today and noticed the site comments have gone to FB instead of usernames. Is there an option? . Obviously there are people here who purposely avoid putting their face on this site so this would discourage some people from commenting. I was wondering if the plan is to make all of Curl Talk this way.


Thanks.

I hate it when my bf says he loves me. HATE it. I used to be madly in love with him, and now I am not. In fact I have a lot of resentment and regrets. And when he says I love you (which he says a lot) or asks me about marriage it pisses me off and I dont want to feel obligated to return the favor. Now he notices. Sometimes he will say "you dont have to say it". Even when we have ..."relations" I feel like I am having to put up so much extra effort to "feel" happy. I dont feel happy with him. I just dont like him. I long to be with someone that makes me feel happy and appreciates me. The problem is I also don't want to be alone. I have lost so much these past two years and he is the only person I "have" this is a disastrous recipe as it has me settling by default. Now he wants kids, so when we are together I feel like sometimes he intentionally doesn't want to use birth control methods. We;ve been together for 3 years and he was with me through the worse times of my life. Its VERY difficult for me to just let go NOT because I love him but because of the history we have.

I really feel like he is quite possibly the worse boyfriend someone can have. Really. He has never hit me or cheated on me, but hes ridiculously selfish and since he's been diagnosed with a blood infection is not nice due to the pain. I kinda think I want him to break up with me. That way it will be final final. But he wont. He thinks I;m "the one". Recently "after" he looked at me hard in the face and looked worried..like concerned. He said "If I change, then will you marry me?" I had a nervous breakdown that same night. It's like he is in denial about the level of misery that he has caused me.
Dear LMN,

I have trouble leaving relationships, too. Is there someone professional you can talk with, or even a close friend who could help you get through the challenge of leaving?

I hope things work out for you in the best possible way.

I didn't want to spend my life like that. Towards the end During "relations" I would take my mind somewhere else and hope to God it was over soon. He didn't beat or be cruel but his ways were very inconsiderate. I told him I didn't love him. He said he knew but wanted to be with me anyway. He cried one time saying he didn't want to lose me. How do walk away from that? Hed ended up being deployed and I called and broke it off. It was easier with the distance to break free. Maybe your dude will move.

So I just got done with a language exchange. Whew. That was rough, in a good way. I wrote a simple paragraph in English and said it in Chinese at that moment to my language partner. The only prep work I did was looking up 5 nouns I didn't know. 6 sentence took 43 minutes! Lord almighty- I am now looking up basic Chinese grammar because it seems that's what it all came down to. Had a little tonal issues but not too bad.

Been in a protective style for the last month, and after this week is through I need to take it out and do a length check. Almost 4 years natural, and with my average rate of growth and trims, I should have 14-18 inches of hair on my head if it's been kept healthy. I had a few hiccups like everyone else, but I just want a healthy head of long hair.

And I wanna give myself some blonde highlights. I know I said no more coloring, but I want it professionally done this time! I want a change~!

Usually I give up CT for Lent. I wasn't going to this year but I changed my mind because not chatting with you guys in def a sacrifice. But I am also taking the time every day to tell a friend or family member what they mean to my life. I want you guys to know I think you are wonderful inspiring people. So many of you have met struggles be it financial, relationships, career, emotional and you persevere.. I appreciate you listening to my stories and your willingness to share your life stories with me. I wish you all the best that life has offer and that you stay encouraged no matter what your situation. I really think of the 4 Say It posters as a talking with a group of friends. although I have never met any of you and perhaps never will you are all dear to me.

God Bless and See you Easter Sunday,
Ad

Got my phone pickpocketed today. The worst part is that I caught the guy and had him in my hands, and no one stopped to help. I ended up running after the dude and then losing him in the metro. I feel awful.

It is hard not to because you're angry that someone thinks he has the right to take what is yours that you don't have time to be afraid. It sucks when people ignore what is around them, especially when a victim needs help.

I'll miss AdT. I gave up anxiety and anger for Lent. Not worrying excessively feels awesome.

The only snag has been my boss who calls me excessively and talks to me excessively when in the office about things that aren't important and sometimes aren't even work related. I have cut him off in mid sentence and told him that I have work to do. He either gets mad or apologizes later in the day. I think he needs to retire. He freaks himself out and then bothers me. If I could have quit a few days ago, I would have. Lol. Other people have noticed. I think someone with more power than I have told him something because he was more productive yesterday and didn't call me at all during the afternoon.
