People say I love you all the time - when they say, ‘take an umbrella, it’s raining,’ or ‘hurry back,’ or even ‘watch out, you’ll break your neck.’ There are hundreds of ways of wording it - you just have to listen for it, my dear.

Story time!

Decisions is about a group of friends in a family they created within themselves, struggling with adult concepts like rent, jobs, and relationships while still kind of being kids; and how the choices they make reveal who they are as people.

decisions, friends, story, writing,

Hey kids, gather round for story time!

I’ve made a new blog for a story I’ve been trying for ages to write, about a group of twenty somethings and how their choices affect their lives. Go see it here: http://bookofdecisions.tumblr.com

Later when I’m at my computer I’ll make a proper post, promise.

I don’t know why I’m bothering to say anything

It’s not like tumblr has ever helped me out before. I’ve just run out of people to talk to.

I’m at the end of my rope. For real this time. I can’t get a job, even at fast food (they say I’m too overqualified), even with the recommendation of a current employee. I can’t get any assistance from the government - I’ve been denied everything. I can’t afford to eat and rent is due on Sunday. It will be the second month I don’t have it and I’m afraid what Kareem will say when he has to cover me again. He can’t keep feeding me forever.

The only option I’m finding is to move back in with my parents’ - but I can’t. I’ll lose Kareem if I go, but more importantly - I’ll lose my recovery. The very thought of moving back there gives me panic attacks. There are so many triggers - people I can’t see, places I can’t go, even my own HOUSE is a trigger, with its constant drama and fighting. If I go back there, my depression will come back and I won’t be able to break free again. I have no support system out there - my own parents haven’t even SPOKEN to me in three months. Going back home is a death sentence.

And it’s starting to look like the only choice I have.

These are easily the three most important men in my life. And the three I am most conflicted about.


Kyle, b. 1988, Oregon

  • I’ve known Kyle for ten years. In those ten years, I’ve been his friend, been in love with him, been destroyed by him, and befriended him again. I’m not sure how I feel about him. I’ve let him into my life again, I flirt madly with him… But I’m… honestly, a little afraid of letting anything else happen.
  • Pros: He’d choose me and only me and does not have a string of other girls he has feelings for. He says sweet things that I want and need to hear, and he seems to really like me.
  • Cons: I don’t really know him, other than the sociopath he’s been for the past ten years. I don’t know if he’d be good to me or for me.

My dad, b. 1967, Pennsylvania

  • I am my dad’s miracle child. I wasn’t supposed to exist, and my dad is fiercely protective of me. My dad is also racist, and hasn’t spoken to me in three months, because he thinks I’m dating a black man. No matter which I choose, he’ll cut me out of his life for good. I’m his miracle baby, and he’ll trash me just like that because of the color of my husband’s skin or the shape of his eyes. And I don’t know how I feel about that. My dad and I were very close, until I met Kareem. 
  • Pros: My kids would have a grandfather, if I gave up Kareem and Kyle and married a white boy. I’d have my father back.
  • Cons: My dad is racist as fuck. I’ve have to give up the love of my life to get him back. He has anger problems that give me panic attacks.

Kareem, b. 1990, Michigan

  • Kareem is easily the reason I am the person I am today, a much more confident, relaxed, accepting woman. He’s my best friend, always there for me, never lets me slack off or sink back into my depression. I’m completely in love with him, and he’s the reason my father no longer speaks to me.
  • Pros: He’s everything I ever wanted, could give me everything I ever wanted and needed, and we have the same values and goals.
  • Cons: He has strong feelings for five other women that he can’t let go of, and there is no guarantee that he will ever choose me.

I’m unsure what to do. I can only have one. And it’s ridiculous, that either of them will lose me my father, but it’s true. And I think I can live with that, because I know Kareem is the kind of person my dad always wanted me to end up with; and I think Kyle could be that person if I gave him the chance.


What should I do?
