Whether you love or hate her she says the craziest, realist, funniest things. Many have emphasized on some lyrics where she states “I gave you more than I give myself. So loyal to you that I betray myself.” Cardi B saying that in one of her songs, hit home for many women. It’s a downfall that many women have lived where they have given their all to the wrong person. Those women that have been in domestic violence relationships know this line right here could do something to the soul.
No one expects to be in a violent relationship. Women don’t look forward to having to deal with abuse no matter what kind of abuse it is. Even the strongest, most independent, self loving women have ended up in domestic violence relationships. So when she states “so loyal to you that I betray myself” that’s how an independent and strong willed woman feels when dealing with a violent partner. Each time he abuses her she is betraying herself because she knows he is no good yet she thinks she can help “fix him.”
Women naturally overextend themselves especially if they are “in love” with the person. They’ll do whatever to make things work and ensure the other person is happy. Sometimes it comes with the cost of dealing with an abusive person. Ladies it’s time to stop shorting and betraying yourselves for someone who isn’t worth it! Leave the self betrayal behind and give yourself more. Remember there’s no love like self love!
