Self-Empowerment: Judge Your Own Self

Coming out with your hidden successes will reveal to you more about people places and things currently around you than anyone could ever tell you about yourself. If everybody seems to know you…are you truly seeing yourself through your eyes or others? From which point in your life?

What is your answer if God asks, “Tell me about yourself?”

We are absolutely never as bad as people judge us. Open your destiny and be engulfed by your own light. Nobody judges the past…they judge what they see right in front of them and even that can be skewed, without knowing the past and no inclination of a future.

People grimace at physical scars…but have no idea how they got there.

I’m not wearing scars yet people grimace at my revealation of having been raised through the foster system. Then suddenly they change up on me as if a thousand scars suddenly appeared…and then with the closed off comments.

“Oh! You don’t look like it!” ๐Ÿ˜
“I’m so sorry!”๐Ÿ˜
“That’s terrible you had to go through that!”๐Ÿ˜

I’m like,
What does foster care look like?๐Ÿคจ
Why are you apologizing?๐Ÿคจ
Who said it was terrible?๐Ÿคจ

The appropriate open-ended response would be (if at all),

“What was that like?”๐Ÿค”

Curiosity would ask,
“Tell me more.”๐Ÿค”โ˜•

This is why I say,
Be your own judge…you know what you’ve been through, have done and have not done, and are doing. The best way to consciously have the future you desire is to work at it now…whether publicly or in private.

If you see a rock planted in the dirt that doesn’t mean there’s nothing under earth to trip you up. If you see a boulder planted in the dirt, that doesn’t mean there’s deep problems under earth.

Reach back and share with the people that struggled with you and encouraged you and helped you out of those dark places…then launch yourself forward into your season!

Whether I write or speak I intend well to have a positive impact and good influence when it left my energy. That being said, if you resonate make changes, if you can't resonate, make changes still.

I have many different interests as this world is huge and there are so many places and things to explore. Such an advantage of foster many differences and similarities wrapped in the word FAMILY.

I am a Bachelorette of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies and an Associate of Science in Human Services. I possess 20 years as a Human Service Professional and bring training and experience in coaching self-development. I provide empowerment to persons in need of spiritual redirection and can make mental health referrals. I am an Ordained Minister, Certified Life concentrating in Spiritual Re-direction, and a Mental Health First Aid Responder.

I currently work as a human services supervisor with my team who serves close to 400 persons in underserved communities under an inclusive care management organization. Our clientele response is very satisfied and we are able to connect people to medical, mental health, and substance recovery programs, housing, and other entitlements. We provided services during the Covid Pandemic, earning us the Team of the Year Award in 2020.

Even though I was raised through the NYC foster care system and exposed to several religions, I was born into a family of spirituals, pentecostal/non-denominational pastoral leaders, and builders of two church houses, in Laurens South Carolina, and in Chicago Heights. We believe all humans no matter pit or wing, have a universal right to experience their inner soul's actualization right here on Earth.
