“My girl so insecure. She always looking for shit.”
“Yea. I tell mine, if you look through my phone it's a wrap. You got ta go. Why they always looking fa stuff?”
“What do you mean, looking for stuff? What kind of stuff?
“Man, they be lookin’ for other women numbers and shit.”
“So, what you got a phone or a grenade? You leave your cell phone down and she see a message from baby, and it will blow your whole shit up. You'll be starting the New Year in a shelter or in jail.”
“That's only if she lookin’ for something. Why they so insecure?”
“I hate to tell y’all this, but you will not date secure women,” I said.
Every man in the room paused, cocked their heads to the side, and looked at me like the RCA dog.
A voice shot out of nowhere.
“You will not date an secure woman because you are insecure.”
The looks on their faces indicated in no uncertain terms that I needed to resolve the tension.
“I'm not insecure. She’s look’n fa shit.”
“Remember the meditation we just did? Remember how noisy it was all the shuffling, fidgeting, and stuff that was going on. That's insecurity. The inability to just sit still and breathe. What about all the girlfriends? You're supposed to be in a committed relationship and you're cheating. Cheating is a form of insecurity. Violence is the biggest form of insecurity there is. There can be no attack without fear. We all date and get involved with people who are equal to or less than we are. I suggest that we account for and learn to manage our own insecurity, and stop believing that it is a force outside of us, moving toward us, rather than a feeling inside of us, moving out.
The room got quiet.
