And this is also why I refuse to be silent, or be "nice" when I see oppression in all its forms. I will not sit quietly and allow LGBT rights to be eroded further, I will not sit and speak softly about women's rights, and I refuse to be silent about racism. "Being nice" has never changed governments, it has led not revolutions, and it has never given power back to the people.
"BLESSED ARE THE SINGLE-HEARTED, FOR THEY SHALL ENJOY MUCH PEACE... If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, if you stay your soul on God, nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit which is life and peace. In that stillness you know what His will is." ~ Amy Carmichael
When someone makes you feel miserable, treating you badly. To the point you are sad, hurting and crying. It’s time to move on. Don’t even accept this. You will learn to get into a pattern to get treated as such. And this is unhealthy. So next time you are saying to yourself this is bs and you know your feeling are being hurt. It’s a good time to bail.
For my teenage daughter, for myself, & each person who compares themselves to someone else. CHIN UP & CARRY ON! :)
