.Think Like A Man.
This weekend "Think Like A Man" premiered and took over the number one spot at the box office. All over my timeline on twitter, I saw everyone's verdicts and opinions about the movie. Takes me back to sophomore year at Hampton when the book first came out. You saw tons of girls walking around campus with the book in the face and hi-lighters in their hand. I've heard great things about both the book and movie, about how it's such an "eye opener" but honestly, I'm personally not that interested in seeing it or knowing "how to think like a man." I'm a dramatic person and I take somethings very seriously and I can be sensitive aka I am a woman. I'm learning as I'm going and I have experienced some hurtful things dealing with guys. That's fine. It's a part of life, however I don't want to read something or watch something that's just going to make me feel even dumber for allowing what I allowed or falling for what I fell for. I don't want to beat myself up over anything and most importantly feel sorry for myself. I know that I would. I'm being completely honest. Who wants to feel sorry for themselves? There's NO need for me to read or watch my personal humiliation and pain again. I don't need to be reminded. Also, I know that men plays tricks, but women do alos. I don't want to learn the tricks of a man. Yes, it would be great to just automatically know what to do and what the deal is. To avoid the game, but I don't want to think like a man. That's why I'm a woman. I don't want to be rational about things that shouldn't be looked at as just rational thinking. I like to challenge certain things and I like to be emotional and all that makes me, me. Eh.. All I'm saying is that I'm not super anxious to see this movie because I don't want to feel sorry for myself. To watch someone play the role that you once did. To see just how you got played out right before your eyes. To relate to the pain and embarrassment. Who wants to deal with that?? Not me.
