A few months ago, I posted a piece about juggling the self-worth dissonance I face on a daily basis. Consequently, it was also when told the world I was headed back to graduate school to pursue a PhD from the University of Maryland.
Fear guided that inner-debate around self-worth.
And outside of that headed-to-school processing, the worthiness questions appear in other forms and life capacities. The shooting in Orlando, leaving 49 mostly black and brown queer folks dead, reignited a reminder that I cannot and will not be shaken.
A dear friend shared this on my wall, and today I am letting it shine as a bright reminder. You won’t shake me. Period.
Thank you for sharing this piece with me, Brandi. Much love.
