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.
