Hey BaeFriend! It’s Britteny Floyd-Mayo, wellness expert, mindset-hacking coach, and founder of Trap Yoga Bae®. And guess what? It’s cuffing season, y’all, and I’m back with some sophisti-ratchet tips I’ve learned and picked up along the way to get us through this season healthy, healed, and hella happy. Let’s get into it.
Trap Yoga Bae®’s 10 Ratchet Affirmations for Cuffing Season
1. It’s crazy how fast sh*t can change.
BaeFriend, keep in mind that just as fast as the weather can change, feelings can change, too. One minute you’re all in love, and the next minute you can’t stand the way that sucka chews! Remember to go with the flow and pay attention to the lessons learned in the experience.
2. If the feelings are mutual, the effort will be, too.
Lissen … ain’t nothin’ worse than a one-sided relationship. If you find that you’re the one putting in all the work, that sucka ain’t as into you as they may claim, sis.
3. “Let’s go eat” is my MF’n love language.
Love languages are a whole vibe! Imagine expressing your feelings to Bae without even saying a word. Shift your focus to what makes your partner smile. It could be a lil’ token of affection, some time spent together, a simple love note, a playful smack on the ass, or bringing them their favorite food (clearly my choice).
4. Listen to your damn intuition, sis.
Them Spidey senses be tinglin’ for a reason. Your gut intuition knows way more than your brain and your heart will allow. Listen to your intuition even if it’s telling you some sh*t you don’t wanna hear. It’ll ultimately save you from future BS.
5. If someone ghosts you, respect the dead and never f*ckin’ disturb them again.
If they suddenly stop responding, let sleeping dogs lie, BaeFriend. This is probably the universe blocking some BS you know you don’t need in ya life anyway. Casper’s ass may SEEM friendly when the one who ghosted you one, two, or even three times pops back up (usually around Mercury retrograde)—but are you really gonna allow that sucka to make you relive the feels you went through during the LAST disappearance? Respect the dead and block that sh*t.
6. Remember that sucka you thought you couldn’t live without? Now look at you happily moving on. The pain never lasts.
I mean … This is self-explanatory. Just know that it gets better, sis.
7. Some sh*t be fun while it lasts, but it don’t really be for you.
Enjoy the moment in the moment, and let it go if it ain’t for you. Continue preparing yourself for what is to come your way.
8. Stop accepting f*cksh*t you’re really not OK with … it’s draining AF.
This is the one. Been tellin’ you don’t settle for no f*cksh*t from the beginning. Disrespect is unacceptable AF, and you are way too worthy for that.
9. Just take it one ghetto ass day at a time.
Chiiiiile, sometimes you gotta just make it through the day to deal with the sh*t some folk try to bring into your life. It ain’t always easy, but it’ll def be worth it on the other side. Protect your peace.
10. Remember: you’re never an option, you’re a privilege and an MF’n honor.
Remember your worth. A sucka should appreciate you for who TF you are, and if they don’t, f*ck ’em. Simple.
Enjoy whatever cuffing season sends your way, whether it’s getting cuffed by someone or cuffed to something during an extended hot girl/boy summer. Ayyyeee! Whichever way it goes, enjoy that sh*t!
