{Letters From Her} Dear Black You

image

Dear black you.

(yes, my light brights, paper bags and chocolate bars all alike)

  There has to come a point in your life when you say enough is enough. A time has to come when you say that I will take control of my life. You have to be brave enough to stand up against stagnation in your mind. I want you to recognize the value that your life possess. Understand the best love is self-love. But you won’t know self-love until you get to know the Creator.

 With so many issues being surfaced in today’s society it’s important that we have to be appreciative as to who we are and who we belong to.

I just want to let you know a little about yourself since we have seemed to forget…

 

Black man, you are a leader.

You are valued, respected, loved, admired, protecting, providing and cultivating. Thankyou for your boldness and the courageous moves. I support your dreams and will motivate your ambition. You are or will be a great father. You are a wonderful son, brother, cousin and friend. You don’t need to sag or wear your clothes 3 times too big. Thankyou for working on yourself to set us free from self-esteem slavery. Without you our tribe dies… so I thankyou for producing life.

 

Black woman, you are needed

.

You are respected. You are trusted and sought after. Your hands hold power to change this world. The land needs your support and strict rules. The children need your teachings and nurturing love. Enough with sink sitting booty pics and only focus to swing around the pole. Love on you so that you can love on those around you. Cook dinner, clean up and be a LADY. Watch what comes out of your mouth and don’t yell at men. Keep your hands to yourself and be slow to get angry. Wear more dresses, stop caking on makeup and walk with your head high.

 There is potential and purpose in YOU. I see it and will tell you EVERYTIME I feel the need to.

Stay confident & be easy,

          Her.

{Letters From Her} No Role Models

image

How do you expect to have a real conversation with someone that watches reality television?

Everything is fabricated and filtered so it seems.

No one wants to have a role model because they’re too concerned with being models.

With no one to follow after and learn from the only goal is to have a K behind the number of followers on Instagram. The question I ask now is… where are you leading these followers? To school? To the studio? To the pole? To church? To HELL??

 

No one loves themselves so they hide behind pounds of makeup, push up bras, waist shapers, spandex and drawn on eyebrows. Not to mention the FEET Of weave that covers way more than just their shoulders. Oh! Not one of those “Barbies”? Hmmm Okay!! I’m coming for yall natural divas too. You knowwwww…. The ones with pounds and pounds of product in their natural hair and full face of makeup. I’ve been told that makeup is to enhance your beauty.. some folks dun painted on a whole lie.

This RANT not to bash anyone or display my displeasure of reality television, makeup or eye brows… it’s to bring awareness to self-hate. Only someone who’s unhappy with themselves will attempt to be anyone else.

 

Baby girl… embrace yourself!!!

If you’re an A cup. Be happy. If your face is bumpy… wash it and stay away from pop/soda. If you have a few extra rolls go for a walk. Baby love, DO YOU.

My fellas, stop looking for validation from the ladies by the complements you receive on your Jordans, rims or Cartiers.

Quit flashing money for likes on Instagram.

Please be confident and get a grip of YOUR LIFE.

Understand that life doesn’t just happen. YOU have the ability to LIVE.   

Let’s turn off MTV and look at the man/woman in the mirror… the truth is in there.

Be Easy and True to YOU,
        

Her

{Letters From Her} Breaking Out of Religion

Church hurt leaves the church HURT. Stop looking for God to appear in humans. Yes, He uses His children BUT they are NOT Him! Yes, you can have the anticipation of His love and mercy to be displayed from the church folk BUT how many people are in the church and not OF IT? YES, I went there!!!

LET’S BE REAL… ENOUGH WITH BEING RELIGIOUS!!!!!

 

So now all your hope and faith rests in the decision of fellow believers versus the ONE we ARE to believe IN.     

Sounds crazy right?    As crazy as it sounds, it happens EVERY single day!

 

Leaving the church because someone hurt their feelings or because someone didn’t acknowledge them. Folks don’t know how to receive the walk of their neighbor in the congregation. Being defensive of their emotions versus defending the faith. Quick to put on a lamp shade when placed in a dark area and even faster throwing shade when Godly correction is given.

If no one else tells you this let me go on record and say…

Your pastor is NOT God.

Your neighbor that sits next to you is NOT God.

The nurse, worship leader, First Lady, Deacon, server, usher nor is the greeter is God.

You dun held their words and opinions to such a standard that now you’re mad at God because YOU indirectly and unknowingly made these ”church folk” an idol. Now if it’s ONE thing we all know about God is that He is a VERY jealous God! He does NOT like when we put things above Him nor does He like when we place opinions of others over the facts that He provided. Stop holding them accountable for the growth of YOUR relationship with God.

“The church” can’t heal you!!!!! Stop using Sunday Service and fellowship as band-aids. The wound can ONLY be healed when it is exposed to what it cannot see… only feel (air). Allow God to be the only one you have the expectation of healing from. Let Him be the air. Do not depend on a hug from the greeter or a complement from the most virtuous woman in the church. THEY ARE NOTHING BUT HUMANS.

FULLY rely on Christ and watch as He grants you EVERYTHING you could possibly desire.

 

Go to church empty BUT with the expectation of being filled ONLY by God. You don’t need to be filled with processed revelations. Get to know God for YOURself.

 

   Be Easy and Remain Honest,
           Her
