I feel powerful and amazing.
My head feels clearer than it has been for a long while
for some reason I’d been confused (again) by white rhetoric
I’m not sure if I should (but I might) unfollow the few white people I follow. I still seem to be in a delicate place re: working out how I want to get to a better place in terms of embodying my genderessence.
but it is a powerful and amazing thing to study your history and remembering your place
knowing your history/past/heritage is a great tool for resisting colonialism
I am part of a long line of people whose role it is to nourish, health, and support our community
I do not need validation from white institutions, people, or anything else
I do not need white medicine to for me to be what I am
I am human
I know my role
I have a place
all these things are mine and always have been
