“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.
