Things I must do today:

1. Go somewhere w/o my sibling bc she’s the kind of person who doesn’t say she’s sick of you…she just starts being passive aggressive, until you back off, (but then it’s her who confronts you about “Why are you not talking to me?”).

2. Plan what I’m stuck on…in order to leave this city again.  ASAP.

3. Take time to take care of myself and get some alone time…while sorting stuff out.

4. Be excited about the new therapist I’m meeting this week…but also realize my problems will NOT be fixed in one appointment.  And also realize I can look for another one, if this one isn’t right.

5. Have empathy for my family, who may or may not be working on their problems…but I should keep in mind that no one can SEE clearly, if they’re in denial.  I’ve been there.

The stereotypes that plague our lives teach that the characteristics of empathetic understanding are feminine: listening, sensitivity, quiet consideration and gentleness. Empathy is feminized and boys learn quickly that what is feminized is, in a man, the source of disgust. While parents, teachers, coaches, grandparents and others whose ideas shape children aren’t sitting around telling boys, “Don’t be empathetic!” they are saying, in daily micro-aggressive ways, “Don’t be like girls!” The process of “becoming a man” still often means rejecting almost any activity or preference that smacks of cross-gender expression or sympathy.
The important people in our lives leave imprints. They may stay or go in the physical realm, but they are always there in your heart, because they helped form your heart. There’s no getting over that.

Nicki Minaj speaking up about the backlash she received for her “Anaconda” cover. There will forever be a difference in how black bodies are viewed even when being marketed the same way. When black women show their bodies they are hoochies and hoes. But when white women show their bodies in a similar or even more revealing manner it is ART or fine. It can be sold in stores, seen in households without a second glance. I’m not agreeing or disagreeing with women showing skin but pointing out there’s no difference between the two. Intersectionality is real. Hard out here for black women. Feminist movement never claimed us.

Not even mispronounced. Straight up “Americanized”.
