…”feel like God is still with me”.
so #weoutside again. woohoo!
the parties are lit and the brunches are plentiful.
i’m sure each one of us has been to a concert this year.
many of us waited patiently,
to get back out there once the pandemic was over. truthfully, there are many who haven’t returned to this new normal.
it brought us further into a peril where we suffer silently. one thing we aren’t fontin’ enough about…
two things can be true at the same time.
i don’t think many of us realize this,
especially in the black community.
we expect everyone to be as pretty andperfectas what we see on instagram.
you can have a very pretty life and be very sadtoo. hell…
There are people who post their pretty pictures but literally waiting to die.
can you handle their truth? or do you want them to always be pretty? to entertain you because you are dying inside too? you don’t come to this foxhole because i post pretty pictures, pretending to be better than you…
during my time offline for my birthday, i decided to watch a movie called “the whale” starring brendan fraser.
in the movie,
he played said whale. no seriously, he was pretty large.
the movie touches on truth, addiction, and forgiveness.
even with how cruel some of the people were to charlie (brendan fraser),
he still tried to show love and see the positive within their disgust/hatred.
from the start, middle,
i was bawlingin all kinds of ugly.
ever so often,
a movie comes along during a time i need to watch it. “the whale” was it for me and i thought to myself…
sometimes, we learn quickly that there are others in worst positions than us.
our problems are molehills compared to the mountains of many others.
i asked my therapist to try out group therapylast week. i was very excited about taking my therapy journeyto the next step, but itended up draining me for a few days…
