Keke Palmer Says 'Everyone In Your Life That You've Ever Loved Will Eventually Disappoint You'

"People you love are going to betray you, but it's how you move forward from there."

Keke Palmer

Keke Palmer is a jack of all trades: actress, singer, entertainer, viral sensation, and so much more. Stop trying to box our sis in, because time and time again, she makes it very well known that you can't, and never will be able to. In fact, she's never been a one-trick pony in her entire career, because when she's not gracing our timelines with her hilarious skits and Reels, she is out here working like no other, filling us with all the anticipation for what she has coming next.

But the one thing we can always count on our girl for, are the gems she droppeths. From interviews to Instagram, Keke Palmer will always get your edges together with a word.

Particularly, one of her latest gems caught my eye and had me re-evaluating all of my relationships and friendships. While sitting around and surfing the web, I came across an interview where she opened up about legacy, representation, and more. But it was her approach to expectations of other people that stung the most. She told LADYGUNN:

"Being a human being is a very scary experience because everybody is going to disappoint you. Your mama's gonna disappoint you, your best friend's gonna disappoint you, everybody in your life that you've ever loved is going to disappoint you."

She then referenced the story of Jesus and the betrayal of his disciples, and continues:

"People you love are going to betray you, but it's how you move forward from there. No matter what you go through, do not let this world make you bitter, jaded, and cold because this is just part of the experience."

Chiiiiiile. Listen, as someone who is always in her head, girl whyyyyy'd you have to hit me like this, dang!

And with working in the entertainment industry, Keke knows a bit about disappointment, and has touched on the subject in the past in reference to a few of her upcoming projects (the Strahan, Sarah, and Keke show being canceled, and her music and films having to be pushed back multiple times--which, each were majorly affected by quarantine and COVID).

Twitter

Yet despite it all, Keke has found solitude with life's disappointments, and knows how to filter through. She even learned to cope through finding the key silver lining of quarantine for her: becoming her own best friend:

"I really don't think I realized how much I benefited from being alone. [I] admittedly enjoy being alone more than I thought I would and I get to be my own best friend while cooking, prancing around her house, doing pilates, and getting lost in a good Netflix binge-worthy series."

Just when I thought it wasn't possible to love her even more.

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.
