Conscious Release  

roydashme:

The limit exist in the mind alone.

The ability exists in the mind alone.

I sit here and I ask myself, what is holding me back?

Why can’t I ask questions?

Why can’t I defeat bad habits?

Why can’t I set good ones?

Why do I let things get to me?

Why can’t I be open to others?

Why am I…

Take control of your life :)

"when she was 7, a boy pushed her on the playground
she fell headfirst into the dirt and came up with a mouthful of gravel and lines of blood chasing each other down her legs
when she told her teacher what happened, she laughed and said ‘boys will be boys honey don’t let it bother you
he probably just thinks you’re cute’
but the thing is,
when you tell a little girl who has rocks in her teeth and scabs on her knees that hurt and attention are the same
you teach her that boys show their affection through aggression
and she grows into a young woman who constantly mistakes the two
because no one ever taught her the difference
‘boys will be boys’
turns into
‘that’s how he shows his love’
and bruises start to feel like the imprint of lips
she goes to school with a busted mouth in high school and says she was hit with a basketball instead of his fist
the one adult she tells scolds her
‘you know he loses his temper easily
why the hell did you have to provoke him?’
so she shrinks
folds into herself, flinches every time a man raises his voice
by the time she’s 16 she’s learned her job well
be quiet, be soft, be easy
don’t give him a reason
but for all her efforts, he still finds one
‘boys will be boys’ rings in her head
‘boys will be boys
he doesn’t mean it
he can’t help it’
she’s 7 years old on the playground again
with a mouth full of rocks and blood that tastes like copper love
because boys will be boys baby don’t you know
that’s just how he shows he cares
she’s 18 now and they’re drunk
in the split second it takes for her words to enter his ears they’re ruined
like a glass heirloom being dropped between the hands of generations
she meant them to open his arms but they curl his fists and suddenly his hands are on her and her head hits the wall and all of the goddamn words in the world couldn’t save them in this moment
she touches the bruise the next day
boys will be boys
aggression, affection, violence, love
how does she separate them when she learned so early that they’re inextricably bound, tangled in a constant tug-of-war
she draws tally marks on her walls ratios of kisses to bruises
one entire side of her bedroom turns purple, one entire side of her body
boys will be boys will be boys will be boys
when she’s 20, a boy touches her hips and she jumps
he asks her who the hell taught her to be scared like that and she wants to laugh
doesn’t he know that boys will be boys?
it took her 13 years to unlearn that lesson from the playground
so I guess what I’m trying to say is
i will talk until my voice is hoarse so that my little sister understands that aggression and affection are two entirely separate things
baby they exist in difference universes
my niece can’t even speak yet but I think I’ll start with her now
don’t ever accept the excuse that boys will be boys
don’t ever let him put his hands on you like that
if you see hate blazing in his eyes don’t you ever confuse it with love
baby love won’t hurt when it comes
you won’t have to hide it under long sleeves during the summer
and
the only reason he should ever reach out his hand
is to hold yours"

"I just think that it’s important to take a moment, and I always take a moment in the show. I need you all to take stock in your life, I want you to really think for a moment. How much do you really love yourself? Do you really give yourself enough credit? Are you too hard on yourself sometimes? Or maybe you’re not hard enough, maybe you could work harder. Take a second to reflect on all the things you’ve been through, the challenges, whether they are personal or at work, your dreams. Take this moment to recognise how truly valuable you are. Look out, into the sea of people, you are all here together to rejoice. Pick one thing about yourself that you truly love. One thing, and rejoice with me right now. And my favorite thing about myself, I’ll share with you so that you don’t feel so alone. I like the way that I deal with my insecurities, the things I don’t like about myself. The way I deal with them is that I’ve devoted my whole life to making other people feel good about themselves. It’s my way of giving back, its my way of understanding who I am. I guess I see a bigger picture of the whole thing.I’m not here tonight to play a show to you all so that you all say “Wow, she’s amazing” I want you to come here tonight and say ” Wow, I’m amazing.”"
