Now, I have a confession to make: I used to love silly self help books. I mean, granted, I read a lot of things, to the point of nerdly compulsivity. But I used to think these books were cute, in an absurd kind of way: "How to land a man! How to keep a man! How to know if your single status is due to some kind of hex!"

It is necessary to my survival as a womxn of color to be compassionate with myself. The world already shoves lies down my throat, erases my history, and tries to rip away me and my family's humanity. It whispers wetback, illiterate, rapists, poor, illegal, no-good, third world and third rate, tries to make shame pool in the pits of my belly. I refuse to taste bitterness and pity.
