I Love Black People. When I see us? I see where our humanity meets our divinity. I see where our wounds meet our completeness. I see where we hurt. I see how we heal. I see when we rise. I see US. And because of that - I will do everything in my power to never harm us. If I see a Black Person being harmful - I will speak to their completeness.
Do not be discouraged when they try to intimidate you. Do not be discouraged when they try to silence you. Do not be discouraged when they refuse to see you. They are afraid of what we are here to teach. We ask them to love and they seek to silence us. Why? Because they do not know love. Because they are terrified of love. Even as it hopes to help them.
Given the day I’ve had, I want to go ahead and say this out loud: I believe my body was poisoned by the Mirena IUD. I believe my IUD is the cause of a plethora of health complications and 9 months after having it removed I’m still figuring it out. I’m significantly better, working with a variety of practitioners, but I’m still healing. I have good days, bad days, and days where I can’t get it together.
