The 25%: “Swoosh” It.

I will admit that I have changed since I was 7 years old and watched Child’s Play for the first time…and the last (I’m sorry…I will never expand my risking to that movie.). I have to remember that what I am doing is not a waste of time.  Self-exploration is how we grow into better people.  We get to know ourselves so we can tell others who we are.  Self-reflection, a definite lost art,  provides us the ability to assess who we are to ourselves.  I fear what is to come, but I fear staying stagnant and ignorant to better possibilities more.

My fellow millennials, Utsha Khatri and Anish Agarwal, say it best:  “This is going to be a long, hard fight, but we, more than any other generation, have the potential to shift the tide and make lifesaving differences. And maybe the term millennials will mean so much more when we get through this.”

Let Her Learn the Hard Way.

Granted, I know this will be extremely hard because you don’t want to see a sistah dear to you go through pain. However, you also know she doesn’t know how to manager her pain, and you must be responsible for your energy. If you take an account of your life you might find that you are having trouble getting things done internally and externally for self because you are drained and hurting. Replenish your energy and protect your emotional state; let her learn.

No More Apologies Purely for Peace.

It is very important to be careful of how we use feelings, and apologies. If you are not wrong in a matter nor your presentation of such you should reconsider apologizing simply because the other person is taking out their frustrations on you. Furthermore, it may be time to re-evaluate the nature of that relationship. No one deserves to be abused in a relationship, and continually apologizing in spaces that are not warranted will make those you interact with feel justified in their thinking, and mistreatment of you. Sometimes you will have to stand up for yourself, and sometimes you are the one owed the apology. Peace and compromise are important, but so is fairness. This peace that allows others to mistreat is not true peace, and eventually something in that relationship is bound to break in a very harmful manner to all parties involved.

Do You Need New Friends?

It took me until my 30s to realize why I had issues with keeping effective friendships in my life.  I did not know myself.  I was scared of sharing myself with people.  I also did not know what I wanted, but I expected everyone to read my mind. For the record,  people can not read minds.  Since they can not do that,  I had to learn myself in order for me to develop a love for others.  Now, I’m grateful to have a village of people who I consistently practice reciprocity with.  I take joy in having these people in my life, and I hope you are able to find the same joy.
