One Day last week I woke up to a Facebook post of an old friend stating that she tried to commit suicide. Immediately everyone began to encourage her telling her to hold on and the she matters has a purpose and is needed. Check on your friends and family. People wear smiles every single day and they may be hurting inside.
As black people most of us were raised with the teaching “oh i don’t need help”, “counseling is for white people”, or “ i don’t need anyone in my business”. Sometimes you have to reach out to people for help. Do not be afraid to ask for help. If you cannot call on your friends to help you when you are in need why do they have the privilege to be in your life?
We were not created to live our lives alone, in some way form or fashion we have to depend on one another to survive. If you are feeling some type of way and need someone to talk to reach out to a friend someone you can trust to listen and not judge you, we all need that sometimes there is nothing wrong with seeking help. If you do not want to talk to a friend from fear of them sharing your business find a professional there are programs that will offer counseling services for free or cheap. Talk to someone.
I have been wanting to start a blog for the longest time! Along the way I made up various excuses of why I needed to wait and now I have pushed all of those excuses out of the way and taken that leap of faith! I am always encouraging my friends and family when they are down and in need of an extra umph. I decided that I would like to share my talents with you! This blog will be all about the spread of love and positivity, starting with yourself.
I believe that people get so caught up in their own little world; often filled with anxiety, stress, or anger, and forget that other people are having those same experiences. I believe that people need to get back in tune with love and compassion. I believe that if we as human beings remember to do all things with love that the world would be a much better place.
Fear and faith cannot exist simultaneously what makes a person think that love and hate can? It can't. You cannot love yourself, close friends and family but hate another person. How Sway? Don't worry I'll wait. If you truly love yourself that same love extends to everyone around you. The same compassion that you give to your family extends to strangers.
We have all heard the saying "be the change you want to see in the world", so lets do that. If you want to see more kindness and love be that. Let's start a revolution of love!
I will post a new blog every Wednesday. I will be back next week, Until then do all things with love! XOXO
