Lessons Learned From ‘She Called Me Woman’ (Entry 15)

Lessons Learned From ‘She Called Me Woman’ (Entry 15)

LESSON 15

From the chapter, ‘To Anyone Being Hated, Be Strong’, BM has this to say:

“To anyone who is battling and being hated, I tell them to be strong. You feel it’s the end but there’s always a better day. I’m living testimony of that. I’ve cut myself. I’ve bled in a bathtub. But right now, I can’t see myself not living my life … My life matters. Let us just live.”

 

Sometimes, when I am striving to talk myself out of the darkness, I do not disregard the pain. I tell myself that this pain is real. I acknowledge it. Sometimes I let the heaviness out in the form of the tears that flow from my eyes.

And then when I have dried the tears, I acknowledge that the pain may be real, but it is not all there is. There is more beyond it. I look beyond it. I search. I focus on the possibilities beyond the pain.

Because I must live – and these possibilities make it possible.
