Value and potential

Have you ever fell victim to an other person’s opinion of you?
You knew the truth… and knew that what they said of you was a lie… But for some unknown reason you gave in to a spirit of powerlessness and allowed yourself to become a prisoner to it.
I grew up under such a cloud of oppression.
My desire to learn and to express myself creatively was not appreciated outside of the classroom.
I was told that I was lazy.
I was called rebellious and was the topic of gossip.
People who should have protected me found ways to oppress me.
It came to a point when I struggled to believe that anything good could ever become of me…..
Thankfully I had an awakening. I came to the realization that I was born to be me. I came to the realization that the parts of me that others wanted to kill off are the very things that this world needs. I’ve come to recognize that the world is a better place when we rise up and be all that we were created to be.
Need a safe place to find yourself? Send me a message. It would be an honor to coach you out of the pit and set you on the path to climb the mountain that you were born to climb.
Bendiciones! 🙏

  1. Me too, John. The teachers, preachers, family who could have coached me to be the best man I could be were absent. 🙏 I spent much of my life just trying to fit in finally realizing I cannot fit into another person’s peg hole. Good post, brother.
