What do you need to face up to in 2023?

What do you need to face up to in 2023?

What do you need to confront about yourself or your situation in 2023. What have you been avoiding that you need to trust yourself to be able to confront and resolve in 2023?

As we awaken to the realities of living and working while black; When we realise the odds that are stacked against us. We inevitably go through a phase of rage and victimhood. By victimhood I mean externalisation of all of our power. Of holding our advancement ransom to someone else’s recognition of our worth and the error of their ways.

What we struggle with acknowledging when we are deep in this victimhood state; is that we can hold people 100% accountable for their racism and sexism against us and simultaneously acknowledge our part in this dance; Where our power lies and ways we have given that away.

By waiting for ‘them’ to act right, by not leaving when we should, by not having the difficult conversations when we should, by not acknowledging our own worth and agency, by neglecting our own development, by being comfortable with calling people out, cancelling them.

By running when it’s time to do the difficult work of building and coexisting with those we are in disagreement with. Even when in their imperfections, they are willing to listen, to learn, to be disrupted.

What do you need to face up to what the circumstances in your life are reflecting the inner work that you need to do? With self compassion, no judgement or self shaming; Are you willing to take the first step? You don’t have to overwhelm yourself by plunging in, maybe all that’s required right now is to get your feet wet.

What do you need to face up to in 2023?
