Take time today for self-care, self-love, and self-respect. When I was single “back in the day” I always celebrated ME on valentines day. I never sat at home whining or crying that I didn’t have a date, if nobody asked me out – I took myself out to dinner and a movie.
“So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure . . . that you really are strong, you really do have worth. And you learn and learn . . . with every goodbye you learn.”
Chanel Miller is the kind of young lady that will motivate you to do the right in a wrong.
I wish I had this brave young lady to listen to when I met my monster in the night, she would have empowered me to do the right in a wrong and not sit in my garden of shame and quilt. That’s what I did, what other woman did in the past. We would set up our “silent garden” where we cultivated our shame in silence not telling anyone of the hurt that was put upon us. When you suffer in silence it keeps the secret alive, but once you tell the TRUTH it’s like cutting a major artery . . . it can’t live.
