Wow, this is so Saturnian. Bleh. LOL. And no, this isn't about "the resistance." It is about what life's obstacles could be doing for me (and for you).
One thing I didn't say, but I think I was trying to say--especially as a black woman, being strong isn't really a credit to me. It's more of a symptom of a world that doesn't really see my full humanity.

It's like that tweet I RTed a little bit ago about being superheroes.
So that's the tension that's always lingering around and doesn't tie up this blog post, or my life, in some American, red shiny bow.

The only way this won't become some complete tragedy is that this strength is used for the greater good. And I plan on that.
And that's the Sag side of me: I can't really make these linear thoughts. There are always connections to other thoughts that may even be a bit contradictory. But it all belongs. That post was as if there aren't societal influences affecting my circumstances and decisions.
Anyway, it's hard to write about things like this without feeling double-minded, but personally--I have to believe that this isn't in vain, that there is some purpose to it all, even if I have to create the purpose myself.
