As much as I admire depend upon and am inspired by all of the many beautiful Black womxn and MAGEs who do it all… providing us with the very foundation and the very best content…
I always like to take my time to observe and compliment the BW who are instead of producing and working, relaxing. Doing nothing. Spoiling themselves. Being highly melanated, unbusy, and unbothered. Chilling. Resting. Healing in unseen ways.
“Sometimes you have to be a high flying bitch.”
— Grace Jones, Grace Jones: Bloodlight & Bami
Unseen being the key word. Healing like it is: none of our business. We don’t get to see it or hear about it it just is. It simply is happening, unstoppable healing.
These BW teach me something super valuable, more valuable than any product or content they offer us, BW setting — and modelling for us how to — set life sustaining boundaries.
Magic is the key; our life is the lock.
Impeccable boundaries are the key to shaping a new world. Boundaries are a means of shaping and creating the society and world that we truly deserve.
I like to think of boundaries like a trail or like a dance in either case where I am always free to step away, as far away as necessary, for whatever amount of time required.
Boundaries must be breathable.
BW are not going to save the country this time. BW let’s just not do it. Sit this one out. Divest.
BW, continue to heal, it goes without saying. Let’s save ourselves and each other, our sisters, our siblings…
This is Full Circle.
Truth is a value.
LATERAL VIOLENCE IS REAL AF AND NOT TALKING ABOUT IT IS NOT SAVING US & I DONT HAVE TO SAY WHAT YOU WANT ABOUT IT
IMO TALKING about LATERAL VIOLENCE *as such* gives us the means to attack the problem and not each other.
It’s weird 😒 to me that folx are refusing to name that SILENCING IS a huge part of lateral violence
