It's not your fault, but it's your responsibility

Where and how you were born is not your fault, but what happens thereafter is your responsibility.

Being born into poverty sucks. Living in a sexist society is draining. Experiencing racism is dehumanising. The burdens we are handed at birth are often not fair, but they are ours to carry. Ours to navigate.

There is power in ownership, owning your pain and handicaps allows you to face them; face yourself. We cannot begin to navigate truths we refuse to face.

Our problems are ours to address.
