A Letter to You… Insecure Black Girl

“If any female feels she needs anything beyond herself to legitimate and validate her existence, she is already giving away her power to be self-defining, her agency.” – Bell Hooks

Dear Black Girl,

Know that you can rise above this common feeling of restlessness and displacement; that these insecurities can only thrive if you let them. Don’t allow the stressful demands of the world require more than you’re willing to give. And, if you’ve been hurt, forgive and forget. Forget the people who bred your insecurities; forget the moments you fed into them; forget that there were ever any in the first place.
