Credit to @sana_ny : I know this much...I've never met a #Woman that wasn't a warrior. I guess I've been lucky in that way. I only know the strong ones. The resilient ones. I only know the doers and the creators. I couldn't point out a damsel in distress if you asked me to because I just don't know any. I know that shit is hard and people make it harder--especially people you love. I know men can be terrible and they can also be great. I know that we were not all created equally. I know men (most that I have encountered anyway) were never given the space, time, teachings, support to know how they feel, like REALLY feel about shit. They move through space and time so agressively because its the way they've always been--hunters, fighters, rulers, leaders. They were never taught how to live through the heart. It was never a smart survival tactic to do so. I know women had to learn this, own this, live this, teach this. No one knows oneself better than a woman. I know we learned how to fight emotional warfare, spiritual warfare...and win. I know we have not evolved equally. I know there are voids to be filled and gaps to be bridged. I know we are complex. I know we need to heal. I know we need to do the work. I know we cannot fix everything but we keep trying. I don't know much but this I know because I've always known. Like my mother, and her mother before her, we have always known this truth.
