Can I Speak My Truth by Bianca Toussaint
ConGradulations Queen : Can I speak my truth?
I was academically dismissed twice from Borough of Manhattan Community College, I swear I was going to give up. I was chasing some boy, my gpa was trash, and life was throwing the craziest curveballs. I preferred partying and smoking weed because it was the easiest and it made so much of my failures feel better & momentarily disappear.
I was so undisciplined - even to the point that I was ready to rule out getting my associates degree because I felt like the 9 dollars I earned at Abercrombie & Fitch and then the 11 dollars I was earning at Uniqlo could get me through anything - because I always could buy fly shit. Nah, glad I snapped out of that quickly.
I proudly come from an educated household, so I'm not sure how I fell victim to this worlds tricks. I started following people that were actually following me. The cycle of an oppressed mind.
I still don't know how I made it to this point, because of how my mind made me forget -almost like human instinct didn't want me remember the most humiliating parts of my story.
Gods grace and mercy brought me here, I was as lost as we consider the generation behind us to be... um yikes!
There's so many more layers to this but I just needed to tell you guys that I'm so thankful, all the words in the world couldn't express the love God has for me - but, the greatest thing is that He has this love for anyone who chooses him. Choices people.
