It’s not happening to you, it’s happening for you
My spirit chose to be born in a very religious family. My mother, I would say was and still is, and we lived our lives in fear and sacrifice. Although I would often wonder why things were as they were and why I even had a brain because I was a girl, I would just go ahead with things thinking there wasn’t anything I could do. There was always a little voice inside me that would not accept the status quo – It refused to believe this was the life I had to live, I don’t know where that voice came from, but it would always question rituals and cultural norms even if they were all internal voices.
When I became older and wiser, I wanted to leave all this behind and move forward living the life I wanted, but I look back to all those who are living as I did, believing what others are telling them and quietly living a life of desperation, sadness, and fear of questioning the norm. I have a purpose and each day, and each week it becomes more transparent, more straightforward and directional. By becoming free and asking questions that may frighten others, I will break my emotional chains and maybe become an example for others to remove the blindfolds from their hearts and see what life could be.
