Let Me Be Me 3/27/2014

Earlier this week, my dearest uncle and I had a conversation about me and my life.  I had been spending some of my vacation time with him seeing as I had free time and didn't have to worry about going to work.  I was going to head home to my lovely abode to have some me time and he got upset and said "I thought you were going to spend some time with me."
  My reply was "I have space that I pay rent for and I'm going back there...Dang, Let me be me."  He then goes on a tirade about me taking certain jobs to benefit him and my family.  Again I looked at him and said "not with me you won't. You're a grown man. I'd help you if you needed but you're not about to live off me."
Of Course I can tell that we was heated. I really don't care. That's one reason why I'm like Cheryl Pepsii-Riley, LET ME BE ME!!!  I've lived for my family for far too long and I know they are pissed because I've decided to please myself and G…

@CherylPepsii Riley - Let Me Be Me

Cheryl Pepsii Riley has been on of my favorite singers since I was a kid. I can hear her singing "Thanks for My Child" and me smiling because I was a kid. SMILE!!!! Recently I've been listening to her album "Let Me Be Me"and I can truly say that one of my favorite tracks is "Let Me Be Me," which is the title track.
  It describes how after a show someone asks her what did she want most in the world and it was simply "just to be me."  Right now that is how I feel.  Ever since I came into being for real in 2010, a lot of people have been trying to make me fit into what their perception of Bradley should be. I continue to be me despite the remarks, slick at the mouth comments, and open shade thrown.  It doesn't bother me.
  The lyrics simply say:

With my music and movies 
Good food and some real sleep 
Best friends and my family 
Yeah, that gives me peace 

My Chuck Taylor hightops 
My laugh and my Bible 
If you wanna see happy 
Just let me be me
