The Strength You Possess
One of the things that get overlooked is the strength of a woman, even in our own eyes. For me, I always feel so weak and feel like I can’t make it through, but I always do. No matter how much I break down and cry, I almost always seem to find my way through. People often commend the strength I have and I won’t lie, I be lost as fuck. I don’t always see what other people see.
During my transformation, I focused on looking at the positives in the negatives. Whatever I had control over, I controlled it and whatever I didn’t, I buried that aspect. I learned if I spent time focusing on what’s wrong, I can’t truly enjoy what’s right. The strength that I possess is undeniably the reason I am where I am today. I know that a lot of the things I’ve been through, there are people who wouldn’t be able to handle it without a mental break down.
That time is approaching where I’m seeing everyone is beginning to go through a change, and it’s gonna be hard, but you got this. Sometimes we really just need a cheerleader that’s just like “yes bissshhh!!! You got that shit!” so
YYYYAAAASSSS BISSHHHH, YOU GOT THAT SHIT! YOU GOT THE SAUCE! YOU SAUCY AS FUCK BOO, YAAASSS!!!
I’ve been spending time teaching my daughter and her friends that we as women of color are magical and the reason why society tries to place us at the bottom, is because they know the strength we possess. Some of us might be loud and fuck shit up, some of us might be timid and know how to handle things on the back end ←- that’s me!. But, put a difficult problem into the hands of a black woman, and see how we turn that negative into a positive.
Tap into your inner strength, boo! Don’t let this surface level shit break you. In the end, we fucking rule, Beyonce stamped that!
Until next time…
