This snap shot of Jully Black setting Jeanne Beker straight in regards to her feelings and the experience of indigenous Canadians is so real.
“I’m not the one responsible for your feelings” -Jully Black
The fact is that when she says, ” …I’m not the one that’s responsible for your feelings.” This may sound harsh for some people, but it’s so real. At the end of the day you are responsible for your feelings, your reality and your space. Some people can’t take hard truths and the immediate response is to get in their feelings. This can be distracting and debilitating for a creator. I was one of those people and at times I still am, but at the end of the day when you are faced with adversity or challenges it doesn’t serve you to live in your feelings. I’m not saying to ignore how you feel all together, but find a way to acknowledge how you feel, think on it, and ultimately take action to address the situation and keep moving.
Don’t get stuck in the emo fog
That moment when people get stuck in there feelings, I call it the emotional fog aka emo fog. You can’t see clearly, your moving slower or if at all and you’re so focused on the negative that you can’t even consider the upside. This doesn’t help when you have things to do, a vision to manifest or in Jully’s case people she’s advocating for.
Jully Black was speaking on what actionable steps are they going to make for the indigenous Canadians to address their circumstances. Thank you Jully for being a bomb as creator! A strong example of what it means to #justdekit In this space there’s little time to consider people feelings while there are things to be done to address your quality of life or that of others.
A little tid bit, but more to come! #justdekit #beacreator
ALL the best,
