Like how I am holding up this wall? It's my fave thing to do in social gatherings, but that is about to change.
I grew up a very personable person, even got best sense of humor in high school.Things started to shift in the work world.I got my first corporate job in retail banking.I loved it.I got to dress up and interact with new faces on a daily basis.Little did I know I was in a shark tank , and I was the chum.With praise from those higher up and consistent and high performance in my job, made me a target.A lady that I looked up to like a mentor hated my guts, well she hated my drive, ambission, and the fact that I was seemingly attractive and petite.I was stealing her thunder.I worked hard and got a promotion and ended up being her supervisor.She hated me more.I got a brand spanking new car.It was so new nobody have eever seen one in town. I got the '14 model Acura MDX in 2013.I was living the life, or so I thought. A promising young professional cut short in her career by sharks.A envy-fueled call to HR cost me my financial career.I was lied on.I will spill the specifics later because this is running long.Just know I have never been so hurt, betrayed, and embassed on my whole life.Embaraased because I had never been fired.I was always a stellar worker.My work spoke for itself, but they didn't care.

I learned alot from that situation.Main thing was don't be great at your job and attractive.People hate that.It also made we weary of my place in this world (Solange speaks to me, ok?).I distanced myself immediately after that.I second guessed almost everyone's intentions.I paid attention to how they looked at me.I observed them observing me and sized them up immediately.No need to waste time on someone if I can see their ill-intentions from a mile away.
My mentor-in-my -head, Claire Sulmers (Creator of Fashion Bomb Daily), just wrote her first book called 'The Bomb Life'.I recieved the book yesterday in the mail and finished it by lunch time.Keep in mind, I haven't read a book since Chris and Rihanna were together.This book was for me it seems.She experienced some of the same hate and more.Her story is such an inspiration to me.Despite what seemed like set backs to her, she kept it moving.I am pledging to do the same.Regardless of the haters, I will trudge forward (in the highest of heels or furriest of flats...y'all know I am extra).So no more holding down the wall for me.Front and center I will be, and everybody is gonna see me shine, and IN THAT ORDER!
