I have hear people say that we must know ourselves. This seems like common sense but what does it really mean?
I have been pondering this question a lot lately.
I think that to know yourself, you have to commit to learning about and accepting yourself. This may look different from person to person but, essentially, it starts with spending time by yourself.
In this time, treat yourself the way you would a person you are dating. Feel free to laugh, go out to dinner, see a movie, go to a museum, etc. Have fun with it and remember that dating is not all fun and games. Take your time. Ask yourself hard questions about the attitudes and behaviors you notice.
Once you take the time to know yourself, you can begin to move toward being the kind of person you would like to be.
Just some thoughts.
Do it unconditionally.
Do it radically.
You deserve to be loved by well….. YOU.
That’s it. That’s the post.
Yet another black trans person has lost their life to violence.
His death comes at a time when people are rushing to the defense of a comedian who has a history of transphobic jokes. A comedian who literally says he’s team TERF.
This shit is not funny.
As a trans man who is called to ministry, I’ve been slacking.
I’ve been afraid.
I’m not afraid anymore.
Now I’m hustling and building. Challenging systems and cistems. I’m grinding.
It’s not about me.
It’s not about the money.
It’s all about the message.
God is love.
God is in all of us.
We should be love.
