When you’re struggling within yourself…
It’s like being trapped in a tall glass.
You scream, hoping you’ll be heard .
You stand there with your arms up… waiting for someone to pull you out
……but no one comes, you are trapped.
Stuck standing there; mouth wide open, arms up, screaming at the top of your lungs “HELP!!!“
Just you and yourself.
Now, you’re tired and your energy is gone. You slowly rot.
……because no one came???
But all the while… you, you were there.
When you lose yourself…
When you become unsure of yourself… When you become unsure of the company you keep…
It’s time… it’s time for solitude. Recapture yourself. You have to disconnect from the external noises… and PLUG YOURSELF INTO YOURSELF!!
That means it’s time to step away from the drugs, it’s time to step away from social media… and sometimes that includes family… sometimes that includes friends.
We have to nourish our mind, body, and soul… mind you the saying isn’t just “body”… it’s “MIND, BODY, AND SOUL”…
no one says it’ll be easy because it’s not… especially in our black community. We need better, we deserve better, the change starts from within yourself…
I am tired of seeing us run this cycle where we exclude our mental/emotional well being…
I really hate that people would rather you sit in what you consider unhappiness… by means of just making it in this crazy world and doing what society expects you to do/be. Rather than being happy and pursuing your happiness… because that’s when you truly thrive.
As a woman, you’re expected to carry everyone’s shit and not complain… God forbid if you cry about.
Why is that okay? Who says it’s okay?
Ladies, you are invincible. You are wonderful. Your looks do not define you. Your job does not define you. Your marital status does not define. Your kids do not define you. Your wealth does not define you. Your lack of does not define you.
YOU DEFINE YOU. You have the power to choose who you are. You can’t choose how a person views you. But you can choose who you are and what you represent…
So that leaves the question who are you? And who aren’t you? Who will you become… who won’t you become? ❤
Sometimes you have to step away from the things you think you need/want, in order to receive the blessing you actually need.
When I see people with my same ideas and thoughts I have it makes me feel a little more sane lol… but sanity and insanity both create a certain beauty… when balanced. I can only speak for myself though. Currently reading Creative Quest, and I am loving it…
Nature tells no lies. Clear skies making way for sun rays.
But oh how I miss the clouds.
Curious squirrels and nesting birds.
Trees that stretch, with leaves that glow.
