I’m tired, Y’all.
I’m tired of seeing and hearing women embrace the patriarchy, and shit on and minimize other women.
I’m tired of witnessing women refuse to do the work required to see the truth below their lack of empathy: that they don’t like or trust themselves.
If you’re a woman, and you feel the need to slap hurtful generalizations onto other women, you’ve got some work to do.
And I feel for you, babe. It’s not easy work. But being awful to your fellow females is gonna make things even harder for you in the long haul.
‘Cause, it feels so shitty to be mean – just awful.
To be clear, when someone acts shitty, it’s not the human being that’s awful, it’s their behavior.
It’s much more humane to separate the human being from their actions – This opens the door to forgiveness, which opens the door to connection.
I’m tired of doing the empath/narcissist dance, too – Lord grant me the strength in that department.
I don’t want to be better than anyone else. I just wanna get clear on how to not enable behavior that attempts to minimize other people’s feelings, without having my soul sucked dry in the process.
I’m tired of feeling like I have to fight for what’s right, but hyper-aware that it’s what I need to do at times.
I’m tired of feeling uncomfortable, but cognizant of how prevalent discomfort is in the growth equation.
What I really want is for things to be easier for everyone. And I want things to be easy because I occasionally subscribe to the greatest indoctrinated falsity: that life can somehow be easy.
Now, to my dearest full moon, the biggest and most powerful one of the year:
You are making me tired. I love you girl, but I just can’t wait until you leave town.
Seriously. The last week or so has been madness. Absolute emotional madness.
See you all in a few days, on the other side of all of this very human frustration/confusion.
