My Body Is Not An Apology Continued. Thanks for sharing your truth, Vee!
I take more pictures than I used to; I remember vividly that I was constantly told that I was too far, too tall, too masculine, that I didn't pass well. Funny thing is that they made sure I knew that *scoffs*
Self love was a mothafuckin journey that I had to endure to get where I'm at today. I still have flaws and insecurities, but I look in the mirror and I see my ancestors; I see the sistas that has mentored me and saw something in ME I had to unleash myself.
My sexuality is mines. My body is mines. My brilliant brain is mines. I show up unapologetic as to who I am, and I disturb those who wanted me to crawl under a rock.It took me a while to find my light again...my message: don't let anyone take that light from you.
