I recorded a podcast, but I am not ready to share it yet. It is called acceptance and I share a personal story about my journey.
Acceptance is a form of love. Loving someone even if they are different from you. Loving someone who ex
presses themselves differently than you. Loving someone even if their relationship or nonrelationship with God is different than yours is. You and I can be different. Our journey doesn’t have to look the same. Our experiences do not have to be the same. We can still choose to love and accept each other.
In recording the podcast, I became emotional and realized that I have more healing to do around this part of my journey than I realized. I knew going into this story that there was healing because I have a lot of anger that has been triggered by all the hate going on today especially towards the LBTQIA+ community. There are certain things in our lives that we don’t have a choice in like our skin color, how tall we are, our gender, our sexual orientation, and others. How we love each other in our differences is a choice! But for some people our differences scare them and part of me knows that is part of their own healing journey. However, that fear is affecting a lot of people like the transgender community. I don’t know what it feels like to be transgender or the pain and struggles they go through. I don’t know what it is like to be disowned by your own family.
I do know what it's like to be bullied and kicked out of the lady's room and told to go use the boy's room as a kid because of the way I expressed myself. It was scary. I can still see the rage in those mothers' eyes. However, that was only a few years out of my 47 years of life on Earth. Some people have endured this hate and anger towards them almost every day of their lives. Some people are trying to erase people by forcing them to be something other than their true selves. This is part of the anger that is bubbling up inside me. Instead of spreading love by accepting beings for whom they are, they are spreading hate and trying to divide the World. Love will unite us. Love will set us free. Love will help evolve us. Hate and fear will always divide and burn us down.
I choose love. I choose to heal. I choose to grow and evolve. I hope you all will go on this journey of love with me. It may not be an easy journey. There may be a lot of questions, healing, and self-discovery that happens, but it will be rewarding. It is a journey to find a deeper understanding of love and you will find peace, joy, and happiness if you allow healing and love in.
Respect yourself and respect others.
