When someone doesn’t know their own self my Black female self can seem like arrogance to them.
My love can look like lack of boundaries
My gift giving can look like approval seeking
My truth telling can look like harshness
My leadership can look like being bossy
The space I naturally take up can look like an inflated ego
My strength can look like dominance
My clarity can look single mindedness
My obedience to spirit can look like stubbornness
My standing up for myself can look like a lack of consideration for others
My soul gets lost in their trauma story. After all this is what the patriarchy was set up to do.
And in not seeing me they don’t have to claim and own their own projection stories in themselves.
