What will the future hold.
Friday, October 10, 2014
It's been almost a month since my break up with my last lover. Things seemed to be going well for the 2 months that we were together, however entering
into the third phase or third month I noticed that his communication would get slack, unless he needed money or needed some type of assistance. My ex, whom we'll call "Anton," turned out to be a sweet dream and beautiful nightmare.
Anton seemed like the perfect one for me, but then there were too many red flags and I began catching him in several lies. He would complain about me doing church work and accuse me of not making time for him, when I would sacrifice time with friends and family for him. However, Anton could not sacrifice for me. So , I had to let him go.
I know my worth and I know what I deserve, and I deserve better than a quickie and more than a relationship out of convenience for what I can do. I need someone that can value me as whole and will treat me like the King that I am.
I didn't really want to write about the break up, but I needed to get it off my chest. For some reason this week, I felt overlooked and rejected when it came to dating. Granted I've been getting hits from Facebook and other dating apps, but it's always the same games.
You know: the nsa, you have to fit certain criteria, and stuff that make you feel like you aren't good enough, or either you must be DL and masculine.
I'm sorry but that's not what I'm seeking. I'm seeking a lifetime commitment and not a fly by night operation.
I've resolved within myself to stop searching for love and the perfect relationship and it will come to me in due time. I want it to be right now, but right now, I have so many things that I want to do for myself and I'm not sure if I'm ready. Only time will tell.
I've learned that good things come to those who wait. I guess I'll have to wait.

It's a New Day and a New Week. What will you do with it? Will you spend it regretting and worrying about missed opportunities?
It's time to start fresh and to continue on. It's time for you to aim high for your dreams. Speak positive things over yourself. Don't stress yourself. It may be, Monday, but it's a new day for new opportunities to arise in your life!!!

I pray that you all had a wonderful Sunday. Mine was great and I enjoyed every bit of it. I spent the day with my Grandmother, Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, and Nephews as well as my Dad. It was restful!!!
I had a great dinner and I had a peaceful day of movies and smack talking with the Suber Clan. It was a joy for me because lately, I rarely have time for Sunday Dinner with the family. Growing up and even before I graduated from college, Sunday Dinner was a staple in my upbringing and even into my now, adulthood. T
Thank God for Sunday dinner. I can't wait to start my own family and continue on the tradition,

It's been 4 years since I started the Bradley Show on Youtube. Many of you know that I love singing and love doing music. I'm currently working on starting my own independent label and music career. Many of you have seen the link entitled Bradley's Music. This is a link that I'm using to crowd to help start my music career and trademarking some things.
Below is a cover that I did of Chrisette Michele's "If I Have My Way." It is one of my favorite songs. I hope you enjoy it. Love ya,

There is nothing wrong with regrouping yourself. The reason why I'm writing this piece is that right now I feel a little burnt out with life, blogging, and what not. However, I'm still going to continue to write.
I often wonder, if what I'm writing interesting. I ask myself "how many people are viewing this blog," "why do you keep blogging for," "what's your point." For each question I have an answer.
First answer, Just as long as one person views this blog I am happy. Second Answer, I keep blogging to help others and to ease my mind. Third answer, Everyone needs an encouraging word, some news, or some truth. I may not be a celebrity or media
I believe in being positive. Now granted some people want me to shut this blog down, but if it happens, it will be on my own terms and not theirs. I'm going to keep blogging. I may not have much to say. I may not make sense, but this my blog.

Many of you are familiar with the Salem Witch Hunts that took place in the earlier part of History in which people in the Puritan Colonies would be called a witch and be put through water boarding tests and tortured which would force them into confessing.
In today's society the witch hunt is in the Black Church and it is thrown at the Gays, Bisexuals, Down Low Men, and especially Transgender. It is nothing new to hear a pastor in the pulpit say "I'd rather have a son that's a murderer than a sissy," or my personal favorite "God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve." These are all things that I've grown up hearing all the time. When I was younger I didn't understand it, but now that I'm older and I am who I am, I've learned a lot more about myself and life in general.
As I've grown and have left and have come back to the church, I've learned that in most traditional churches, there is a witch hunt much like that of the Salem Witch Hunts. Only it isn't with witchcraft, it is with homosexuality. It seems as if the church has forgotten about all the other sins such as fornication, adultery, lust, envy, hatred, lying, stealing, covetous behaviors, just to name several. However, homosexuality is the biggest of these.
I find fault with this because the Bible clearly says that no sin is greater than the other. It's all an abomination to God. So why, pray tell, that people always wants to call out the Gays and Lesbians? Didn't God create them and doesn't he love them as much as the thief, the liar, the adulterer, the whore, the deceiver? Through all of the religious doctrine and ex gay therapy, and I can say this from experience, there is often times where LGBT Christians are taught to hate themselves because of something that they couldn't control. As a result we have suicides and people getting married and forced into relationships in order to be accepted by so called "Christian People."
This is not Christ like at all. The Bible teaches that we are to help and approach people out of love and not out of hate. Why go up to a person and tell them that they are going hell, when they really just need to be told that God loves you as you are?
It's nothing worse than coming into a church and being called a "faggot"or a "sissy" because you aren't super masculine or because you wear an earring in each ear. Not only that being called gay because you did the latest fashion trend, but the other guys in the church can do it AFTER you've done it.
It seems today that a lot of, and I hate to say it, Self hating, Gay, Down Low Pastors and Prophets are looking to "expose" people for being gay if they listen to Lady Gaga, Beyonce, wear skinny jeans, or is the least bit androgynous for their gender. Really? I didn't know fashion or taste in music determined your sexuality. It even goes down to if you say certain words or if you even hang out with someone who is LGBT? So the church has reduced itself to a judging house? Last time I checked the Bible says not to judge lest we'll be judge in the same manner in which judged. Yes I said it!!! I don't understand how the church became such a place where people can't come as they are without church folks looking at them side eyed and whispering or the Pastor throwing stones. Not to mention all of the "Pastor Said this and that." Honey you better study for yourself and stop listening to the Pastor like he's God himself. The Pastor is a mere man who can wrongly divide the word of God.
I guess that's all I have to say...for right now.

After I came back in town, Don and I went out Sunday after I got done with my religious duties and he and I talked and cuddled. I enjoyed it, but for some reason, I am apprehensive. I can't figure out why for the life of me. I feel like I'm afraid to trust him. I can tell he cares and he's not shown me a reason not to trust him.
Could it be that I've been hurt and played so many times that I'm just a bitter person? Could it be that my intuition is right? Could it be that I'm over analyzing the situation?
I'm just going to be honest, falling in love scares me. The thought of giving that intimate part of me ie my soul, heart, and inner most me, scares me. I've been toyed with so many times, that I'm not willing to go through that any more.
I'm 28 years old and have never had a relationship that lasted longer than a year without that person cheating, leaving me because of me not being "masculine enough," or the fact that I'm going forth for my dreams. I admit I am apprehensive about approaching my 30's and being alone.
What is a guy like me to do? I'll guess I'll have to take a chance and learn any lessons this experience my throw my way.

|Warning this is me venting don't take it all for fact unless it is historically noted.|
Now although the Separation of Church and State is not in the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence, it is a concept spoken and coined by Thomas Jefferson Danbury Baptist Association in 1802. He clearly states:
"Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church and State."
What's so freaking funny about this bullshit is that people will pick and choose what part of they Bible they can manipulate whenever its convenient for them. Let's not forget we have some thieves and politicians showing hatred, which goes against the Bible. Not to mention they over indulge, commit adultery, but I'm denied the right to marry the man I love and others denied the right to conception in the name of religion.
When it comes to the Separation of Church and State Sam Lloyd of South Carolina states "There never has been. It's all rhetoric.." Isn't that most of what these damn politicians speeches are is rhetoric and eloquent, yet meaningless words? Mr. Lloyd goes further to say "The state was largely created for religious freedom, so how could there possibly have ever been a separation?"
And Sam Lloyd is right. Since this country was founded for "religious freedoms" how could it be a separation of church and state? Apparently and unfortunately it rules the world. Just because you interpret God one way doesn't mean I interpret him the same way. We believe in different things. Apparently, in Modern America Freedom is neglected when it comes to the main religion, Christianity. Granted I am a Christian, but I don't think that Christ would be pleased at how Judaism and Christianity is twisted to down other people, to enslave other people, cause harm to others, and justify things that are unjust. Aren't we supposed to deal justly with all men and show love?
All I see right now is a lot of hate and bigotry. I need a freaking answer.
