A friend of mine recently sent me some words of encouragement that I would like to share. It’s entitled: If I Was A Black Girl In Love With Myself….
The title is catching and the words are [for the most part] gripping. I really liked this piece, although it negates itself a bit by playing up some stereotypes that black females could endure. However, if you get past that part, and focus on the core of the message and love yourself you can reflect on the shoes you’ve walked in and evaluate where you’re going.
So, whether you’re a Jewish boy, a white woman, a veteran, a black man, a part of a minority, a part of a majority, I encourage you to read some (or all) of this piece. Irregardless of how you feel about the execution or the target audience of these words, I am sure that you can find some truth and potentially some growth as you reflect on what the author is trying to say.
