The patriarchy is deep. We’ve created this environment where it’s taught for some to not feel, push down, be good always.... it creates these vampires ... . All just desperate to be loved. We all just want to be loved. We’ve created these vampires that pull because they don’t know how to properly give or receive. It’s sad and it breaks my soul for these men and then women who know how to love and get hurt constantly by this.
The patriarchy is not serving us anymore. We just need to keep embracing who WE are. Each of us. Uniquely... We all feel. We all experience all sides of things (sad/happy, rich/poor (not just in money), infatuation/depreciation, etc. So why do we need to keep trying to classify some as one and the others as another? We should consciously work on stopping this. We are all just beings mixed with a completely different set of DNA. So we should try to exist as ourselves and treat others as unique beings. We need to enter with curiosity and openness to allow for us to see who we each are uniquely. We can exist fully open (with boundaries set in place), loving all and being present to what each circumstance or person needs.
Now that's life.
(And also, this is totally unrelated, but yet could be threaded within... I'm noticing people have a tough time standing up to themselves or others... Is this because we all are secretly people pleasing because we are scared to actually be who we are?!? I mean maybe ;).. Listen, every single one of us is enough. Right as we are.)
