Always trust everyone to be themselves but trust in the fact that you can see them well.
– The Late and Great DMX
When I heard him say this on the last interview that I watched on YouTube and he went further to give the meaning, it made perfect sense. A person is going to be who they are. He stated how he saw the good in people but he also saw the bad. Trust a snake to bite you and so forth. It made so much sense. A person is going to be who they are. Not so much what we want them to be and it made me once again realize that we sometimes get caught up (especially in relationships) expecting a person(s) to be who or like we want them to be instead of who they really are. This is where accepting someone for exactly who they are comes into play and helps us deal with them and situations more wisely and it really does save time.
I don’t have a lot to say on this today because so many people are but I will say this: he lived a life (like many of us) that had it’s ups and downs but Somehow he fought to the end believing in God and acknowledging his mistakes but he seemed to always keep trying to be better. His honesty was highly admirable. He had a rough life but he lived it the best he knew how. I cried when I saw an interview that he did years before now when I learned the pain that was physically, emotionally, and mentally as a child on up. I cried when I heard the prayer and the song that he did with Faith Evans titled “I Miss You”. It was real. It was from his heart and I could relate on missing someone who loved you unconditionally despite your faults and realizing that that person was gone. He was a fighter to have survived through all of it and you just can’t hate on a person for that. We all have made mistakes. At least the man, from what I saw through the years, was real about himself; the good, the bad and the ugly. We have lost a real artist. He was like no other. My condolences to his family.
