Pearl Quick ( @Pearl Quick
) has his #me
"Your hearts too big." "You love too much" "You want too much." "You give too much." "It's too much." I grew up with: sticks & stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.
That has never been my understanding. I'd rather you break a few things in my body than tell me my ability to heal & be healed causes others to be insecure, more broken, and resentful towards me. The mountains come from those I love/ loved the most. Still I can't choose the moments where I am called to love on another person ferociously and without fear. I should be cautious & weary & instead I am overflowing & always ready. To tell someone they have worth, that I see them truly, that I love them deeply.
I've been trying to reel it in my entire life, to no avail.
I would rather be ripped open by loving, than closed off because I was told my love is too big, to full out, "too much." I don't know where to go from where I am. I do know-- Either we will grow, transform, surrender, & evolve ... or we won't. That is okay too-- that is exactly as it should be. Just do not ask me to die so that there can be no resistance to you not wanting to live. I can't change another human being but I can't stop wanting them to know that they are deeply loved & affirmed in a life meant to silence & discourage. My love may be overwhelming, at times, but it is also revolutionary & given as a gift from God ... I don't see the downside. #health #God #Love #Life #Home #Family #Friends #Lovers #Emotion #Emotional #mountains #Give #Peace #Together #blackgirljoy #carefreeblackgirl #blackgirlmagic✨ #laughter #hugs #loving #me #stillness #revolution #evolution #change #wellness #bodies #smile #rest #us
