#30DaysUP Day 22: un-fucking-apologetic
pardon the profanity but it’s necessary to exorcise the demon of perpetual apologies.

maria asked why am i apologizing? is it necessary? aren’t just claiming what’s right for you? who + what are you apologizing to + for?

well, gangsta… def a doable + righteous topic to sit on. this is the week of kicking off the asking of ourselves on, “how do I create suffering in my life?”

internalized oppression is real. it takes on many, MANY forms + the perpetual reflex to be apologetic for, let’s face it, no reason at all is as real today for me as ever.

this is a real source of suffering in my life. sometimes i feel it. sometimes i am even aware of it. this is where i will stay in my practice until i can unpack it in a way where i may then shed it from my leadership.

love is gangsta, folks. g-a-n-g-s-t-a!

thanks for the love, maria.
