Prince protecting himself

I’m beginning to think I understand more than ever why Prince would run away from people he didn’t know - even employees who were in Paisley Park or people who came there. And why he wasn’t comfortable until he observed someone for a while. And why he questioned and had long conversations with young women he mentored and also other young artists both men and women.

He was keeping himself safe, and I thank GOD for that. Cuz humans have animal instincts, and he would’ve been stolen from in much more serious ways and eaten up in a minute by people who might look NORMAL to you, or even who you think of as normal today if he hadn’t seriously protected himself.

He had WAY too much to lose.

He didn’t keep walls around him, meaning he chose who was in his life and HAD one. However he was only able to do so because his incredible talent allowed him to have financial stability and create his own world.

I get it, because at this time in history? I am ready to go somewhere alone... until this storm blows ova!

What. It’s not crazy out there?

I’ve always been ahead of everyone else. Taking some time solo right now til this societal storm passes, is most certainly a good idea!

I’m no5 talking about politics or the stories in the news. I’m talking about the day to day stressors in this world. I’m taking some time to de-stress.

If you can do it, why not?

Later, I’ll start a new life. But for now? I’m taking cover. And I’m not the only one who is doing this.

"conversations", "mentoring".

I get ya.

I wish i had taken that lesson from P as to being careful who u let into and let stay in ur life. I was always the opposite kind of person to that. I would let people in and in and suffer their slings and arrows before I had to shove them out again. I just had to inform my boss today that this co-worker of mine was verbally harassing me who I thought was sort of my friend. I've gone out of my way for this person and done favors them only to have myself exposed to their verbal abuse. You just shake your head and go didn't anything I do make you not want to bully me? ironically I think it's because of Prince's music that I let people in before I've gotten to know them well. He's always preaching about a higher love and all that but I guess I should have taken that with a grain of salt. Well, that's all changed here in the 21st century. Sad but true.

And I thought this was going to be a thread about his usage of condoms.

I don't think that's why he had long conversations with girls.

Why is it so difficult to upload an avatar?

prince sang about ideals, platitudes when it came to a lot of his lyrics, (love 4 one another, paisley park and the rest of the utopian tunes going back to Dirty Mind) but reality is not idealism. They say that the prince thing of running from people was part act, it's hard to say.

as far as how fucked up people are, you're right, i learned that from my parents who'd come home from work disgruntled about someone at work fucking with them. I never trusted, never, i've had few close friends, lost many more close friends and been betrayed in small or great ways by everyone I've ever known. These days people can do me a helluva favor by just leaving me the fuck alone. Sometimes I really do believe that there are demons running around getting into people because a lot of the things they do and quickness with which they'll change and turn on you has to have something spiritual going on. One of the wierdest things though is how people who'll fuck any chance they get and they want to make small talk or maintain normal manners like saying good morning or what have you, people are fucked up. Prince still let too many people close, let too many people into his home and into his life. In fact, that was one of the more shocking revelations after he died, how many people he got around to, opened his life to, was accessible to. They say towards the end he let down a lot.

He shouldn't have used condoms tbh. Should have let his seed fall anywhere like his dad.

A certain kind of mellow.
