If anything, I’ve felt the complete opposite.
I have a self-confidence and self-esteem that is rooted from deep within and my self value and self-worth is not defined by anyone else’s perception or misconception of me or who I am as an individual.
I am grounded within spirit as there has most definitely been something intangible watching out for me, caring for me, loving me and just awe-inspiring me, while the accommodation remained steady to follow through out my journey here in this life.
The state of being informed, guided, directed and protected stems from an innate condition yielded by destiny yet decided by fate which both in the same provides a total difference.
I am a human being before I am female. I am female before I am African-American. I am African-American genetically dressed in multiple ethnical flavors of culture as a decorated adornment of my soul/spirit.
