There’s nothing to fear but fear itself.

Spike Lee as “Half-Pint” in the cult classic “School Daze”

𝑼𝑵𝒍𝒆𝒂𝒓𝒏𝒊𝒏𝒈 and 𝑫𝑬𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒈𝒓𝒂𝒎𝒎𝒊𝒏𝒈 is more than about race, gender and capitalism. It is about peeling back EVERYTHING you were ever taught to be and every way you were 𝒕𝒐𝒍𝒅 to show up in the world. Why because it was likely taught through the lens of a racist white man...

Your soul began losing its identity beginning with your parents forcing you to sit at the table and eat as a child. Crazy right?! But it’s true. We have to get back to how our soul craves to exist before college, before sports, before schooling, before being told you can’t play in the dirt. Can you imagine what you would look like now if could have just gone about life freely? Like without expectation and meaningless rules?

It’s hard to imagine isn’t it?

Well if you want to heal truly, then start by rejecting anything that doesn’t speak to your SOUL. It’s not easy because the traumatized self is louder but just get really quiet and start asking yourself does this feel good to my soul and if not what can I do to help myself out of or into a better space. You may cry and you may resist because it may cause REAL shifts in your reality but isn’t your soul worth living in 𝑫𝒊𝒗𝒊𝒏𝒆 𝑻𝒓𝒖𝒕𝒉?

This time in our lives is about 𝒖𝒔, as individual beings. If you didn’t have time to do the work on you Mother Nature just did you a solid so go ahead and start it now. Take the drivers seat and save your own life, you have the time to do so until 🤷🏾‍♀️. This is literally our “grace period” to do better by ourselves. And if the pot gets too hot, phone a friend. That’s what they are there for or even better call your therapist.

"I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning how to sail my ship." --Louisa May Alcott

One thing for sure is we will all look different on the other side of this but its up to you to determine the 𝒘𝒉𝒐 that will be you.
