(refresher: I very very abruptly became homeless a few weeks after quitting my job to deal with the loss of a best friend who was murdered, due to a break-up. while my ex-partners had agreed to help me get on my feet, they suddenly withdrew…

Today my best friend stayed on the phone with me while I figured out whether my attraction to a certain type was healthy, pathological or just where I was in life. I figured that shit out and felt SO.MUCH.BETTER. The attraction to “the” type is about my need to believe in human transformation….

Had a convo via text (I didn’t want to talk cuz I didn’t want to cry) with my bestie in this same vane - had been holding in too much too long and I knew speaking with her would help but not necessarily dissolve my issues! It’s def good to have those type of people in your life!

@msinsatiable Girl. It is hard to find people who are willing to challenge you, who know you are hella smart, but won’t kick you when you’re down.  Someone who can ask you to check yourself, but does so out of Love who KNOWS your archive so they can say “Harpo, YOU WERE ATTRACTED TO THAT KIND OF PERSON IN ‘05, this ain’t new.” I am so glad you have a homie like that too. They are precious. I am also glad that you got it off your chest. Untold stories make us sick. I think.

You are not going in circles

You are making progress in a spiral. You do come back around to where you were at the start, since recovery and healing take time, but every time you come back around to that point you’re a little higher up because you’ve got more experience, more knowledge, and more strength.

You ARE making progress

I really needed to read this!!

Pray about it as much as you think about it.

I figured that shit out and felt SO.MUCH.BETTER. The attraction to “the” type is about my need to believe in human transformation. GIRL.  It took me 10 minutes, on the phone, walking around a tree, talking it out. Her capacity to look inside of me and NOT judge. Man listen little bears. I want ya’ll to have someone like that. Someone you can show all your raggedy shit to and know that they will never throw it up in your face. We don’t talk often, actually rarely, but she helps me problem solve like a mug; exactly when I need it. I humbly hope that I do the same for her.

really excited to be quoting/citing gardenia’s in  goldchains in the work…with her permission of course. :)

OMG I figured it out.

New Media goes first.

Digital Feminisms Goes second.

Then third I talk about the two together and how Black girls voltron it. Geesh.

#Progress.
