Few days into the month and Cardi B drops a shocking announcement. She posted a video, which has been removed, to let everyone know that she is no longer with her baby daddy Offset. She explained that they "grew out of love," and regardless of filing for divorce, she will "always have a lot of love for him because he's [her] daughter's father."

The duo had only been married for a little over a year since they held their secret wedding in September of 2017. They welcome their baby girl, Kulture, this past summer. The same night that the Bronx native announced her separation from the Migos rapper, she finally shared an adorable picture of their daughter on Instagram.

In response to the announcement, Offset commented, "Y'all won." But, he did not just stop there. He also tweeted, "F*CK Y'ALL I MISS CARDI." He seemed to be blaming everyone (but himself) for what went down between him and his former wife.

Offset has been doing the most just to win Cardi back, but it has gotten quite messy.

He unexpectedly showed up during Cardi's performance at the Rolling Loud Festival to make a public apology. With the Invasion of Privacy rapper looking uncomfortable, he equipped himself with a bouquet of flowers as well as blocks of flowers that spell out TAKE ME BACK CARDI.

But, was Offset supposedly endearing move appropriate? No, of course, it was not. He did not have the right to take Cardi's spotlight away from her as she headlined the festival. She was minding her own business and doing her job. He should not have put her on the spot in front of thousands of people, and he knew exactly what he was trying to accomplish.

This narrative has been around for ages. We encounter guys like Offset every day. They have caused so much damage in their relationships that they refuse to acknowledge. Instead of accepting the fact that they are in the wrong, they find other people to blame. Better yet, they use the guilt tactic on their significant others to make them feel bad for walking away and realizing their worth.

Women do not have an obligation to stay with someone who does not care enough for them to respect their decisions. If a woman wants to be left alone, give her space and let her be. Do not keep pushing yourself on to her; you are only going to push her farther away than you already have. If she wants the best for herself, do not deprive her of what she can have. Women already endure so much, so they should not have felt bad for leaving something that is so toxic and unhealthy from them.

In a world full of offsets (pun fully intended), give women the freedom to do what is necessary for living their best life (see what I did there?). "I wish the spirit of Paula Patton on Cardi B," as one viral tweet said. "Paula ain't give two f*cks that Robin Thicke made a whole album and tour that he apologized for every show.

Without you, there would not be a him, so first things first, thank you.

1. Thank you for teaching him to love a woman the right way, to put God first, and YOU before me always, the respect he shows you is so attractive, and you deserve it.

He talks about you like you hung the moon, I don't doubt for a second that he will be an amazing father one day, I owe all of that to you.

2. Thank you for giving me a chance, learning to love me when you knew your son was doing the same.

I can't speak for my own first impressions, but hopefully mine was not THAT bad...when we both slapped him on the arms for his rude remark at the same time, I knew our relationship was already blossoming.

3. Thank you for every meal you have ever purchased me.

And chocolate, and candy...you know just as well as your son does that food is the way to my heart. Especially Taco Bell and cheesecake ;)

4. Thank you for your advice, suggestions, and opinions...and asking for mine

Whether it's telling me to slap him for being a smart a$$, or you're asking me about color swabs for your kitchen makeover, you come to me as if I am your own, and I am so honored to give you my own input.

5. Thank you for including me

You never fail to leave a spot for me, and I love family dinners/outings with you guys just as much as I love my own!

6. Thank you for teaching your son to never give up, and that if he does it is only to better himself, or it's the only choice he has left.

He is so focused on his future, he wants the best for himself, and he is constantly reminding me that these are things that YOU taught him, you deserve to be so proud.

7. Thank you for letting him love my family, and allowing me to love yours.

He is so loyal and loving to my family, and I don't even have to ask myself why because I see him with you and yours. Thank you for letting us double up on holidays when we can, and making sure we get the most out of our time with you!

8. Thank you for being his best friend.

I think of him as mine too, but I couldn't think of a better person to also hold that title, you know him better than anyone else and you always will.

9. Thank you for teaching him how to treat a woman

He is constantly telling me "You sound like my mother." Thankfully earlier in our relationship, he told me that the woman he wants to be with, should do just that. He always tells people who try, "No, no one calls me by my full name except my mom and my girlfriend."

10. Thank you for your honesty

We all know that he and I can drive you crazy sometimes, thank you for telling us like it is, and making sure we know you still love us anyways.

11. Thank you for teaching him to work as hard as possible in anything and everything he does.

I have never met anyone with such a desire for success, he and I are constantly discussing how we can better our futures, and I know exactly where his drive comes from.

12. Thank you for teaching him to clean up after himself

Even though sometimes, it takes him a minute to do so.

13. Thank you for teaching him how to love, and letting him love me.

I have never felt so loved by a man, probably because anyone else who came into my life was just a boy. Thank you for your unconditional love for him, he is your entire heart and that is so easy to see, I am happy to share his with you.

You and I both know that even years from now we will both occasionally probably be closing the fridge that he left open, cleaning the crumbs he dropped, demanding he take a shower after playing soccer, or reminding him 20 times about plans we made weeks ago, we both share such a great love for such an amazing man. I could never be more thankful that you brought forth into this world such a comforting, supportive, protective, steadfast, driven, handsome, and hilarious guy. Thank you for everything you do for him, for me, and for us, I love you a lot!

How College Changed My Relationships

Living three and a half hours home isn't always easy, a lot has changed.

115

At eighteen years old I was still young and naive about leaving home. Athens, Ohio was going to be this wonderful place where I always had a good time and I would be unstoppable. Literally, unstoppable. How could anyone tell me what to do in my own dorm? That was my space... DUH. I have family in both Pennsylvania and Michigan so going to school seemed like no big deal to me. My mom and dad always packed us in the car to see family, to me three and a half hours didn't seem too far. Along with changes within myself, many personal relationships changed as well over the course of this year.

Mom, my number one fan and my gossip buddy was hours away from me! Of course, we talk on the phone, shoot each other texts and silly screenshots, but it's not the same. It can be difficult to maintain that "close as can be" relationship over the phone. I wouldn't consider myself to have gotten homesick until very far into the semester. There is nothing like your mom taking care of you when you're sick! Our time apart has only made our time spent together more special, our laughs a little louder, and our hugs a little tighter.

Ryan, leaving your BEST FRIEND behind made making new friends a little awkward. I felt like I was cheating on our friendship, we literally have tattoos for each other and now we have to make new best friends?!?! Our contact with each other would decrease and pick back up when one of us had something juicy to talk about. She was busy with school and soccer, and I with school and friends here. At the end of the day, we always knew we had each other back through thick and thin, that's how best friends are. We could understand that every minute we had couldn't be spent on the phone finding out what was going on hours away. I have to tell you though, there are always a few tears saying see you soon when we head back to school.

Tyler, going into college in a relationship was definitely a difficult road ahead for the two of us, but we cared enough for each other to take on that road together. The first ten months of our relationship were spent within 20 minutes of each other and most of those ten months we were by each other's side. By no means was it easy to not see you every day when had the freedom to do so over summer. As the months passed, times got easier and harder and we are still figuring out how to make the distance work. It's a whole different level of effort with a significant other. I hope for better and easier times, only the happiest future.

God, coming to school I wanted to reconnect with God and become more spiritual. I had looked at some options on campus but didn't make the time needed for the one person I should have. I regret this decision the most, which I rarely regret in life. College feels like I'm moving 100 miles an hour and I can't catch a break. There is a heavyweight I cannot lift on my own and the only guidance I can ask for at this moment is yours. I know that my change in relationship with you is the answer.

At the end of the day, I'm thankful for all this year has brought me. With summer coming I hope to spend quality time with those I love and let them know how much I appreciate them.
