Watching this video took me all the way back to my childhood. This is so true for many Bahamians. LOL

Some of you may know that I'm an island girl born and raised in the Bahamas. One of the customs we've adopted when the country was under British leadership was drinking tea. You're truly from the Caribbean if you grew up believing tea had some miraculous abilities.

Is it better to follow your heart or your head?

Follow your heart by Gretlusky
art by Gretlusky

Most of us have heard the saying "follow your heart." I don't think it's necessarily a bad idea to do so, but there are many instances where our heart can lead us wrong. Why? Because our heart is based on feelings - mainly feelings we feel at the very moment when we are to make a decision. Feelings that are based on conditions. Conditions that change. Thus feelings of the heart change.

Short Story by Khara Campbell - Life After

Life After…
Written by: Khara Campbell
(This has not been professionally edited so please excuse any errors I may not have caught.)

            “Whaaa, what are you doing?”
            “What does it look like I’m doing, Bree?” He looks at me like I’m a complete idiot.
            “Why?” I shriek with fear.
“I’m done! You and those bastard kids can keep this dump of a house and that lemon you call a car. Don’t call me for a goddamn thing!” BANG! The front door slams shut behind him. Tears sting my already red and puffy eyes. Why am I crying over him? Why is my heart feeling like it’s going to stop because of the pain of watching him leave my life for good?
            Crying over a man that cheated on me repeatedly. Who denies he’s the father of our two sons. Who does nothing to help financially take care of our kids and our home. I walk toward the dirty living room window and peek out to see Mark throwing his suitcase into the backseat of his new model Dodge Charger, seconds later he’s slamming the car door shut, revving the engine, reversing then driving away.
            Tears pour from my eyes. I hate that I’m crying over him. I hate that his leaving is making me weak. But when you’ve repeatedly heard: “You ain’t nothing, and never gonna be nothing, and you sure as hell gonna drown without me,” you start to believe it. Even if it’s a lie.
