"Even when letting go of people hurts, face your heart towards Allah and run. Whatever is meant for you, will come after you. Whatever is not, will stay behind."

"and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love"

Africans all over the world we derived from spirituality but now we follow religion. Always remember there’s a difference between spirituality and religion. Regardless of what they may try to brainwash into you, you don’t need religion to have a relationship with God. Why are we afraid to go back and practice the ancient spiritual forms of our ancestors? The scariest thing to us is believing in a Black God, an African spiritual system, a God that looks like us…

SEE WHAT THEY DO TO YOU? ALWAYS MAKE YOU FEEL ONE STEP BEHIND. ALWAYS STRIVING FOR SOME FABRICATED IDEA OF PERFECTION CONCOCTED BY THOSE WHO DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR INHERENT WORTH.
DON’T. BELIEVE. THEIR. BULLSHIT.
YOUR SELF-LOATHING IS THEIR PAYCHECK.
YOUR SELF-HATRED IS THEIR CHRISTMAS BONUS.
YOUR FEAR IS THEIR SUMMER HOUSE IN THE HAMPTONS.
YOU’RE WORTH SO SO SO MUCH INFINITELY MORE THAN THIS JUNK.

"Then a woman said, Speak to us of Joy and Sorrow.
And he answered:
Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.
And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.
And how else can it be?
The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain."
