Wow..it truly is up to us to live every day as if it is a gift and find a way to make it memorable.Do something nice for someone, eat at your favorite place, watch and old/new movie..it doesn't take a lot. One only has to focus on the positive.
A-Starting to feel discomfort because of my growing awareness of a HUGE contradiction, like a CHASM, between my politics, my consciousness and my spirituality. I'm going to have to choose soon. I can't keep looking at oppression, exclusion and rejection and expect to experience something else. At this time in my life, I can't afford to attract negative experiences. My focus needs to be back on Black beauty and love, which felt better. Looking at reality fills me with rage.
Just remember that the vast majority of violence against women AND MEN is perpetuated by men, but abusing someone NO MATTER YOUR GENDER is not okay, and it's DEFINITELY not okay for WOMEN to abuse men either.
