People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.
A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life…

The lynching of Jesse Washington.
Washington was beaten with shovels and bricks,was castrated, and his ears were cut off. A tree supported the iron chain that lifted him above the fire. Jesse attempted to climb up the skillet hot chain. For this, the men cut off his fingers.
Jesse was 15.
They hate us so much..
white people voice: but why do black people complain about racism? slavery was like 400 years ago. get over it
it’s easy to look away and ignore racism when your family tree doesn’t include the names of black bodies hanging from trees
True, but eventually we do have to let go and stop the hate or it’s just going to continue.
Let what go
Let go??? That was a real Uncle Tom ass statement
Let go? How can we let go of something they don’t even care to acknowledge anymore?
Somebody’s gotta make sure American history is not falsified.
Never let go. Never forget. This was a crime against humanity that lasted more than just 400 years.
