Yea, that’s right white women get angry too. Tyler Perry movies happen to be some of my favorites, Diary of a Mad Black Woman makes the top of the list. Funny thing about anger sometimes it just wells up inside you and you start to remember things about yourself that you never knew existed. Like how I never used to let anyone make me feel worthless or that who I am isn’t good enough. I am done being a doormat. I am done with ultimatums and being told how I should act, what I should feel, how I should dress and who I am. Starting now I am taking my life back.
I always believed in quality over quantity. I know who my closest friends are and I know who will stand by me through everything. I will share what I want to share when it is best for me. I am entitled to my opinions and I will no longer be forced into a corner and told how to express them.
Emotions are healthy to have. Anger happens to be one of those emotions. This is my journey and I am going to do something for me. There are plenty of other ways I could express my anger and trust me I have considered them. Taking a sludge hammer to walls, releasing 100s of crickets, leaving behind a snake, etc. Instead I am going to write and write and share it with the world. Anyone who doesn’t agree with it can just deal. That’s the beauty of the situation. I have had to deal with the cards that have been dealt and not it’s my job to put all the pieces back together and rise up out of the ashes.
So I am here to say, go ahead and judge me because quite frankly I don’t give a shit. And yes, women are allowed to swear and use vulgar language too. That’s another thing I am done being told how women are supposed to be. No one has the right to define how women should and shouldn’t act except for women. Every woman is unique and should be given the space to define herself and what femininity means to her.
Lessons learned from Diary of a Mad Black Woman:
“What’s this gonna solve? Nothing just gonna make you feel better.”
“I’m not bitter, I am mad as hell.”
“Good thing about being this low there is no where to go, but up.”
