From The Desk Of Dr.Shapiro: "Sugar"

I used to hate having a bandaid on when I was a kid. It wasn't so much the fact that I had hurt myself, it was the anticipation of ripping it off. Unlike my friends parents, mine where very straight and to the point. I was fed information as direct as ripping a bandaid off, with no hesitation. My parents felt that too many people around me were "sugar coated" and not enough were served straight up. Seeing as half my friends were from the hills, and half were from the hood, I had a really interesting well rounded view on life at an early age. I was able to take the good from each of my surroundings. Fast forward 20 years my "sugar coated" friends have no clue about real life. As some of them do have money to fall back on, some of them don't. They were brought up with such a "sugar coated" view of life that everyday they strive to find reality in a world that laughs at their pampered disabilities. My less fortunate friends have had nothing to expect in life except their own accomplishments or successes. They had NO "sugar coating" and appreciate every single little thing that comes their way. They turned their disabilities into abilities. At the end of the day people need to realize as tasty as a little sugar on top may be, the reality is it could be masking a really shitty underneath. Before buying into something, look at the inside, nobody cares about the topping. It's #thursday and my #tbt is not about putting up some retro fucking pictures it's about remembering where the fuck I am from. I will leave you with this, you are only as good as what you have inside. Fancy #louboutin#sneakers#balmain jeans, #rolex #watches, and #gold #chains are just "sugar". Without being right on the inside, all that shit is doing is masking a shitty muffin. #morninginspiration #vintageframes
