Once again, I have to ask that in this #MeToo era we not forget our young boys!!! Yes, I support all the women who have been raped, sexually assaulted, and/or abused by any man. I ALSO support our BOYS who have also been subjected to the same vile and inhumane treatment at the hands of women and men also. It seems women predators are being pushed to the background. Well, as long as I have a platform I will continue to be a voice to all the young boys and men who have been molested, abused, and sexually assaulted at the hands of a women. DON’T FORGET OUR BOYS!!!
I notice the masses allow celebrities to have too much influence on their lives. A lot of it has to do with the media as well, but mainly I see people putting celebrities on pedestals they haven’t earned. It’s ok to appreciate someone’s art, music, acting etc.., but that doesn’t make them authorities on all things. Learn to think for yourself. Just because a person is famous, it doesn’t mean they’re smarter than you.
Be responsible for your own happiness. Stop depending on other people to make you happy. You will be let down every time relying on others to do for you what you should be doing for yourself. Your happiness depends on you and you alone.
Life is full of ups and downs. How one reacts to those ups and downs are key. We only think about how we would handle a dire situation, but we rarely discuss how to handle our success or victories in everyday life. I fully believe you should stay even keel whether you win or lose. There is a fine line between cockiness and confidence. Cockiness can put you in a situation that you are not ready to handle. Yes, there is pressure that comes with winning. Pressure to keep winning, to keep racking up those victories. Just understand, sometimes a loss is a lesson that needed to be learned. Stay even.
In order to have proper communication, you must set your ego aside. Being right isn’t the same as being understood. Also, don’t imagine what someone is saying. Ask for clarification on what they are saying. Too many times we create false scenarios in our heads because we heard only what we wanted to hear, and not what was really said.
Protect yourself at all times. Not only physically but mentally as well. Do not put yourself in situations that will constantly drain you. Mental defense is self-defense.
Taught from books of the same bias, trained by caucasians of the same prejudices or by Negroes of enslaved minds, one generation of Negro teachers after another have served for no higher purpose than to do what they are told to do. In other words, a Negro teacher instructing Negro children is in many respects a white teacher thus engaged, for the program in each case is about the same.
