This is a picture of my grandmother (paternal), my mother and me. There is also my grandfather and my grandmother’s aunt. We are a bunch of strong women who have battled their demons even though I know not much about my grandmother’s and my mother’s demons. However, I know they had trouble with their mental health as well. Seems to be part of a woman’s life experience. My passion and compassion come from both of them and I am proud to follow in their footsteps no matter how crazy they have often reacted and no matter how crazy I sometimes react. I am not apologizing for my rage anymore. It is time to respect that rage and let it teach me and others my boundaries. It is time to listen to my rage and teach me and others about my innate power. It is time to respect all parts of myself!
