Listen and read to receive, not to respond. —my tomorrow’s are never promised. Today was simply a gift, gifted with no instruction. Miles away from home and all I want to do is return home to sleep my days away, shunning myself out from reality. Social media is powerful but can be vicious too. May 13th 2013 I joined Instagram @sadestyledme
to promote my services to clients. Hid myself from my brand to protect my personal sanity. As much as you like to see my talent I’ve grown daily to dislike my talent. I even continued my studies in college to earn a bachelors that has nothing to do with HAIR just in case one day I woke up and retired #SADESTYLEDME
I’d have a solid piece of paper to fall back on. Making money is cool. Being booked is cool. But IMAGE the image many of you, including the people who don’t follow me but have both my business and personal account in your recent search bar because you watch and wait daily for my uploads out of spite, envy and fascination. The only image all of you hold dear to is how I decline clients I have the right to refuse service to, how I’ve routinely ran a business out of my home with strict structure, how I get on instagram to speak my mind either with a calm or frustrated emotion, how I’m not the average 26 year old, how I’ve been homeless on a number of occasions, how the public found out about my suicide attempt because a family member decided to go live on Snapchat to joke about my episode, how I’ve been on the shade room for FREE twice, how I’ve made a decent living for myself which appears that I have a team but it’s only be myself since January 3rd twenty eighteen, how holidays y’all have shit shows in my comments about how I’m so lonely, when in truths it’s by choice, everyone wants you doing good but not better than them, everyone have a hidden motive because THEY see my status, success, fruits of my own labor, my genuine heart, my humbling spirit, ...but the only image YOU hold dear to is the negatives. The negatives that’s unpredictable and unintentional. One day ima hang #SADESTYLEDME
up and never look back. Being in the public eye has cost me a lot but has also gained too. It cost me companionship. Continued..
