Today (Yesterday) I did nothing but lay down.
It was a very hard day.
Something triggered me so bad I literally just laid in bed all day crying and watching ”Georgia and Ginny” act like whole fools.
I just refuse to pretend like everything is OK when it’s not.
People throw the word “healing” around just like “love”.
Everyone’s definition of the two differs tremendously.
We all don’t see nor comprehend nor do we receive or reciprocate love the same.
The same for healing.
Healing is different for everyone.
You can’t SPEAK for everyone when it comes to healing, only yourselves.
That can be so triggering to others you telling them that they need to “go heal.”
I saw it on a post today.
Where it was people arguing back and forth about “growing up in struggle” or “growing up in love.”
Lol baby we are Black in America.
Our parents and their parents and their parents and their parents were born in a struggle that we are STILL within and all of them found a way to LOVE us and nurture us the best way they could.
Neither is badges of honor.
It’s a sick and sad cycle that our people keep enduring and despite so many odds being stacked against us we keep on being resilient and managing to get through it.
I can only speak on my healing tho.
It’s an every day struggle.
There are highs and lows.
Today was a low day but I’m up now cooking and playing basketball in the living room with my son.
I can’t emphasis enough the best thing we ALL can do and work on is just being kind because we don’t know what folks are going through.
PS do you like Georgia and Ginny?
They remind me a lot of my Mama
