A few weeks ago I drew a line in the sand and told my family I deserved more than tolerance. Tolerance is why there's so much indifference in the world. Tolerance is why so many people refuse to take responsibility for the atrocities that have occured in communities over time. We don't deserve your willingness to tolerate you. We deserve your support, love, and commitment. We deserve the commitment to ensure our lives are cared for and that we will be safe and our rights will be guaranteed. Their response? .
"Ok. Have a nice life." .
That's why I remind myself that the blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb. So, here's to the blood of the covenant and all the chosen members of our family we choose to bring into out lives, who will always have our backs, and who will forever love us for who we are. .
Should any of you choose to get the same tattoo I hope you'll look at it and recognize an important fact. You're never alone, and there are always those of us around the world who carry this phrase near our heart right along with you. .
Much love my beautiful butterflies. Go be every bold, beautiful bit of yourselves. 💙💗
