Often do I hear it --- "You are too strong."
These people who are telling me this. They want me to "soften up" so that people will like me. But then I look around and there are some women who are still with me for better or worse. I look around and there are people around me who accept me for who I am and what I do for a living. I look around and there are supporters of my craft and the way that I speak and "show" my mind.
Truth of the matter is. I am strong. But whether or not it is too much, depend on who is taking it.
No need to apologize dear, Erzulliesta.
If you are too strong, then thank goodness you are! It is definitely better than a host of a pity/victim party right?
Now, I am not saying that there is not "strength" in softness. We are Erzulliestas. We will use whatever we got inside of us and we are rarely a one-tune thing. What I am saying is that you may be at your "softest" point and people will still find something to say about it.
Let them talk about it then, Erzulliesta. And you? You be you, boo boo.
Keep the fierce,
