The context of this song is a bit out dated, but it was definitely revolutionary during its time. Today I feel this song is more relevant when used as an affirmation or to empower a woman's perception of self. Training the mind to only accept respect because anything less is simply unacceptable. As a woman, when I focus on self-respect it becomes an outward demonstration of respectability. Understanding how I appear and what I should receive in turn, makes it easier to identify an inadequate mate because receiving anything less than respect appears nonsensical. Folks respect you or they don't and you can't make people do anything!! So I don't see the point of demanding respect. A word to the wise comes in knowing that disrespect is a sign of a lack of self-respect. And I don't have energy to spare for that sooooo ✌🏾#ShoutsOutToAretha #DetroitMusic #SweeterThanHoney #SistaEmpowerment πŸ’‹#Respect #ArethaFranklin #iNeverLovedAManTheWayILoveYou #BlackMusicMonth #LyricalMeditation #iFeedMySoulThroughMyEars #Classic #SoulMusic #QueenBehavior #iAmRoyalty

Recently the lyrics to this song crossed my mind and I rushed to look it up to listenπŸ‘‚πŸΎ, for old time sake ☺️. I use to sing this song in the cherub choir at church, as a child. But as an adult I was taken back by the powerful lyrics as I listened 🎧. I recall my mom playing the album for us in the car πŸš—, around the house for leisure πŸ’ƒπŸΎ, and so we could practice for choir rehearsal β›ͺ️. It's these moments that make you grateful to grow up in a Black church, in a Black community, surrounded by Black leaders and to have Black parents. I may not have known what I needed as a Black child, but the gift was my community exposing me, even to lyrical gems πŸ’Ž that would help guide my life. In the moment as I listened 🎧, I realized the value in this particular childhood experience and having a Black mother to make sure I had these resources accessible. We've been given gems throughout life that feel second nature and we often don't realize they are there. But as an adult I can now pass these gems πŸ’Ž to my community and one day my own. #WhoSaidBlackWomenAintValuable #TheyCanNeverTakeOurWisdom #TheyCanNeverTakeOurRichExperiences #OurBeautyIsRedifinedInHowWeAreSocialized #ThereIsKnowledgeInNavigatingTheStruggle #BlackGirlMagic #WeGold #BlackLove #iUnderstandItBetter #HeyDetroit #HeyTabFam πŸ‘‹πŸΎ #ImAprroachingThisDayWithASmile #HappySunday #HappyFathersDay πŸ’‹#iBelieve #SoundsOfBlackness #AfricaToAmerica #BlackMusicMonth #LyricalMeditation #iFeedMySoulThroughMyEars #Gospel #SoulMusic #QueenBehavior #iAmRoyalty

It's interesting in this song they suggest they want to escape this life, together, in a "taxi cab". But I wonder if a physical escape (in a taxi cab) is inclusive of a mental escape, which is not bounded by social conditions. πŸ€” Does the taxi metaphorically represent access to true freedom? πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ #WhatIsFreedom #WhatIsLove #WhoDefinesIt #WhoHasAccess #MoreToLife πŸ’‹#FarAway #KindredTheFamilySoul #SurrenderToLove #BlackMusicMonth #LyricalMeditation #iFeedMySoulThroughMyEars #NeoSoul #SoulMusic #QueenBehavior #iAmRoyalty

When I worked on my Masters Degree πŸŽ“I woke up most mornings listening to this song on repeat from my stereo πŸ“». I would dance πŸ’ƒπŸΎ around my apartment as I got ready, and sung with the biggest smile on my face 😁. Talk about a fun way to start the morning ☺️☺️! Not sure how my neighbors felt about it though πŸ€”πŸ˜‚.

Some experiences enlighten you in ways that even a song you've known all your life can have brand new meaning. You understand every word in the deepest way because it's now a lived experience. And well, I'm reassured Angels walk among us πŸ˜‰. I also have a better understanding of why I'm often defined as one πŸ˜‡πŸ˜˜ #ShoutsOutToAnita #AnitaBaker #Classic #SoulMusic #iFeedMySoulThroughMyEars #LalahIsLife πŸ’‹#QueenBehavior #iAmRoyalty
