Thank you so much for your stellar response and refreshing honesty. I appreciate the way you detail the progression of being trapped in the systematic rhetoric and emerging on the other side. Slavery ruined us for life and I hate to say that but until there’s an indication of impressive change — that’s all I got.

It’s going to take a lot of effort to shift us away from this crippling way of thinking and devaluing ourselves. Your response give me hope and proves that there are men out there who are willing to shed those damaging misconceptions.

Again — thank you for sharing your story!

Juggling Wordsmith. I have a lot to say!
