I am happy…

This is taken from my Facebook page. FYI, please don’t add me as a friend on Facebook. While my blog is family-friendly…my Facebook is not. It is full of drama, and my vocabulary is very ‘colorful’.
I don’t understand why some people are so close-minded. A person shouldn’t be judged by their race, religion, or sexual orientation. The only member of my family that knows is my sister, and it hurts that I’m afraid of telling anyone else. I’m not ashamed, but I’m afraid of the retaliation that I will receive.

It hurts me so bad that certain people feel like I’m trying to hurt them by dating someone that they don’t approve of simply because of their race. I’ve become physically sick over this. I’ve been crying for the past hour or so because I want to be public about it SO bad. I’m a pretty open person, and it’s killing me to keep this secret (obviously it’s not so much anymore). This person has made me so happy the past 5 months or so, and nobody cares about that fact at all. He has more going for him than any other guy that I’ve dated in the past…and, once again, that fact doesn’t matter. He’s the smartest and most ambitious and driven guy that I’ve ever met, let alone be with. I can actually hold a conversation with him without feeling like my IQ is dropping.
And people always bring up the fact that I need to think about Isabella when dating someone. I have. He has met Bella two times, and he is great with her. She is all smiles and giggles when she’s around him. I wouldn’t bring Bella around someone who I thought was going to be a negative influence on her or would hurt her. I love my daughter too much to put her on the backburner. Isabella has and will forever always be the number one person in my life. She is the LOVE OF MY LIFE! No man will ever come before her. He understands that, and he’s okay with that. He realizes that she was here first and she’s here to stay.

I don’t understand why they think I don’t like my family because of who I date. In school, I was always taught about diversity and acceptance. Too bad that was only a fairy tale. My happiness doesn’t mean anything anymore to people. I’ve already been through way more than enough…can I please just be left alone and be happy for once?

    At the end of the day it's your life to live and you deserve to be older. My fiance is 16 years older than me and I get grief over that. In the end no matter who you are with SOMEONE will have SOMETHING to say anyway. Those who really love YOU will be supportive and anyone who can't be doesn't deserve to have you OR your daughter in your life! ((hugs))

    Thank you for following Life or Something Like It. Following you back.
    Just remember two things:
    Love does not discriminate, it knows no color.
    God loves us all, no matter who we are, what we do, what race we are or nationality. So who are we to love any less?
