Lateral Violence

“Displaced violence; that is anger towards members within a marginalised or oppressed community rather than towards the oppressors of the community”.

Lateral violence is what Indiginous people are suffering. We are all so against each other. I am white skinned but I am an Indiginous woman. I suffer from lateral violence. I forgive those who have unintentionally hurt me. It is their fault but not. I understand this.

I wish I could snap my fingers and the world would be a much better place. I cannot do that as much as I would like to. It is unrealistic. If I want to be realistic, I have to accept that things are hard now. I believe good things are coming. I have faith that our Creator will bring us all together and we can all be a community.

It is the knowledge that needs to get out there. You are not alone, You are Loved even though you feel like your not. S**t is very hard. It will continue to be hard if you don’t make a choice to be the best you that you can possibly be. You are so, so Important and your life is worth living. We can rise but we all have to do it together. My thoughts on the subject.

Forgiveness

“Generally, involves a decision to let go of resentment and thoughts of revenge”.

This is so Important. I am finding that Forgiving myself for my past and Forgiving others has made such a Positive impact in my life.

Forgiving has brought out the Truth which is Honesty. Honesty is a breath of fresh air. It lifts a wieght off of the shoulders.

Guilt, is another reason why Honesty, Forgiveness, and Love are very Important to me. I am always Thankful even if at the time it was just that bad. I have let people bring me down my entire life. I also have brought myself down.

I have always been a forgiving person, sometimes it takes a while but my eyes do open and see the truth. I also have no problem admitting my wrongs. It is a Strength of mine. I can learn to take it easy on the sorry. It has been apart of my language my entire life.

To Forgive is to Love. To know that everyone makes mistakes and we are humans. I will bring that up a lot. lol

Swimming Pool

Oh yes, My best friend for life! I got more than one. Although this woman was my partner in crime at times.

I remember moving to the states, my Mom took me to the swimming pool that was in the trailer park. I met this girl. She was so friendly and accepted me right away. We were pretty close. Every friend has falling out sometimes but in the end she was Always there for me.

We drifted apart as a lot of us do growing up. We got back in contact. I was so happy to have my friend back. Lol She is a Beautiful Mom, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Friend.

Bad story but we went to the park and smoked cigarettes. I remember going to visit and as I was walking up to her place, a bird pooped on my shoulder. Hahaha

I want you to know how Important you are to me. I thank you for being my rock. You are such a Beautiful Soul! Can’t wait for the day I can come and see you, your family. Love you

Childhood Friend

I remember the kindness you showed me when we were so little. A good memory. You made my childhood better. You showed me Strength. I remember I just Loved it when I was going to be coming for a sleepover. Nothing else mattered.

I hope you can forgive me for getting lost at such a young age. I understand your Mom was doing what is best for you. Your Mom is a Boss! Lol I miss you all the time. I still have a picture that I was supposed to give to you when we were little. It even says to your name, Lol in my scribbly writing.

I always remember you sticking up for me and being such a good friend. The best friend I had ever had. I have people I like lol but that bond we had as kids was so Awesome. We are adults now, I am working through things to become a better me.

I hope you can forgive me and I hope we can reconnect. won’t be like when we were kids, thats what is so Phenominal about it. My entire life, you have always been in the back of my mind. Not creepily. Hahaha Thank you for being my friend. You made my life that much more brighter as kids.

Open for change

There is so much good happening in my life. I believe what my friend said. Channeling in good thoughts, positive feelings. Not to ignore it all but accept it. Good and bad.

I used to sit around and mope all day. I lied to myself a lot. Actually come to think of it, a friend from a blog that I follow had opened my eyes to what Positive Toxicity is. lifesfinewhines. I do believe that is her blog. Smart Woman go check out her stuff. Knowledge after all is what we\I need to become a better me.

Positive support, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Courage, Strength. List goes on to the positive attributes that everyone can have. Dang world has been turned upside down. It’s okay because positive change is coming and I feel it.

So no matter what pain anyone is feeling in this m oment and time, Keep your head up. Hold it high because you are Strong, You are a Fighter, and you are Loved.
