▼Why Some Black Women Refuse to Settle for Less▼
○ ○ ○
You can often tell how far your life and career will go based on the five people you spend the most time with.
If I have a problem with my life I should have a problem with the people in my life...God is my source,
my clarity...Let go of the people who don't add to your life...This mentality, while seemingly brutal,
is held by some of the most principled women I've worked with, was raised by, or known.
The idea that someone works hard, chiseling at the concrete slabs of life's turmoils
in the pursuit of their own intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and holistic
personal development and therefore it follows that they have perhaps
a great argument in meekly seeking to protect their values and/or
hard-won achievements and high standard, is foreign only to
the unsophisticated man or woman. The most inspiring
(black) women I've met, watch and/or look up to, are
above the sensual, "strong", sexy body view of
man. They want intelligence, worldliness,
ambition, responsibility, respect (not
foolish competition or pride),
honesty, motivation, moral
support: Love, in deed.
Or nothing at all.
