I have a bunch of blogs waiting to be “born,” yet nothing felt right this week. I think because it’s time to listen versus talk.
I think we need to listen to the pain, to listen to the experiences that aren’t ours. To acknowledge and hold space for those whose voices have been diminished or ignored.
Yes, it may be uncomfortable. You may want to fix it or make it better. Maybe you even feel guilt or shame.
Allow all of it. Don’t deny it by rushing past it. Give it space so you heal on a deep level, to ultimately be a stronger light for those in need. You can’t be a powerful light if you refuse to look at your own shadow. The old needs to crumble.
So this week, listen to those in the black community speaking their pain. Hold space for them. And listen to your own deep pain. Give it a voice as well. Heal your deep wounds so together, we can all create a world of incredible unity and equality.
Me, Tina Germain, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
