I am too intelligent, too demanding, and too resourceful for anyone to be able to take charge of me entirely. No one knows me or loves me completely. I have only myself Simone de Beauvoir

Forgiveness

Tonight I had to explain the importance of the act of forgiveness. Which I never thought I’d have to do outside of high school. No that I think everyone is ethically evolved, but it hasn’t been a thing that I’ve had to talk about ever, so it’s just something out of the blue.

I have spent a number of years being able to forgive those who have hurt me. And not to be all evangelical after school special about it all, but I found that I had to. In order for me to move on as a healthy person, I needed to forgive those who had hurt me before to be able to do so. And believe me, some of them were terrible. But I persevered and realized that holding anger to those who have “done me wrong” was more taxing on me than anyone else.

Who have you had to forgive?

“Preference is all that truly matters and it’s an individual choice. The pressure to date Native or non-Native shouldn’t be external, it should be internal. It’s everyone’s prerogative to act accordingly. Do you feel a calling to continue your bloodline, to keep the culture and tradition more intact?  Act accordingly and be true to your search for love.” Lawrence Santiago
Some of my interviews get used over and over again - this one was first for Urban Native Magazine, and then for CBC Aboriginal, and now for my second book with Annick Press on Urban Native Millenials. Santiago was a gem of an interview, and I’m glad to get his POV across to multiple audiences!

I’m more House of Cards & Suits than most people can handle. Do not ask me a question to deliberate and expect me to shake my pom poms, I will not. I will strategize it to death and figure out a winning game plan. That is all. *drops mic*

Too bad, only like 5% like this approach … Those 5% are my besties though.
