Love Series

This series hopes to explore love using different words. I am just going to write what comes to me. I hope you enjoy it and learn something.


You know those scout drills where some pitchy boy always shouts, At ease, Alert, Attention, I wish we could shout like that and get attention from the people we are simping over.

 Simp is an Internet slang term, used pejoratively for someone who is seen as using excessive sympathy and attention toward another person in order to win their affection, sometimes in pursuit of a sexual relationship.

 Yeah, I had to bring this up. If our keyboards could speak, we would all have that time that we banged on the keyboard really hard as we sought the attention of that specific someone. It is very easy to feel shame for this, but I am learning to see this as something different. No, I am not saying that you be a doormat. Listen to me for like a minute, though.

I have been looking at myself and my behavior towards certain people in my life, and I wondered if I was a simp. I did that test, and I am the Queen of Simpness. I could start a school on simping. They need to let me take my simpness to the bank because I could be a millionaire. Yeah, its that bad or that good. My first temptation was to feel silly and embarrassed that I show up like that for certain people, especially those that dont necessarily show up for me like that. But then I asked myself why I show up. Is it because I want to get reciprocation and praise? Then I realized it is because I care, so I kept simping. The internet will make you think that it is dumb to care while the users behind the keyboard message are busy giving their loved ones the best love.

What if being a simp is the way? Sometimes I feel like my generation is holding a competition and unable to care the most. I have tried being in those competitions, and I wind always being invested than in situations that I really care about. I now try to be my truest and most authentic self in a world that has become so superficial. Where ignoring has been translated into blue ticks, and there is always so much lost in translation. So yeah, I am going to out here in these streets being a simp so that if things go south, I will know that I did my best. I am learning to go into the world with a bigger give mentality than a receiving mentality. I am learning to find joy in the fact that I give, and it has given me so much peace. I am not saying that you stick around places that you are not appreciated but learn to give without recording an inventory of debt, and you will find peace. I hope you find the courage to be a smart self-loving simp.


Are you a simp? Can you be a simp?
