Don’t Heal Em’…They Don’t Wanna be Healed! #TristaDaniell

Not every person desires healing. Some prefer to be wounded because wounds create sympathy and sympathy, attention.

This Post is Gay: You know you wanna read it. 😏

I've seen waaaaay too much LGBT hate on my timeline and I am not for it. I stepped back from talking about LGBT issues, the Black community, and the church (specifically, predominantly Black churches), but maybe I need to start speaking again. Cause what y'all WON'T do is tell people like me we not welcome, … Continue reading This Post is Gay: You know you wanna read it. 😏

Are your prayers full of FAITH or fear?

If/when you pray: Be careful of praying under the influence of fear. There is power in confession. I confess, for the bulk of my life I've lived under a cloud of fear. Every single decision I made during that time was made our of fear - fear of lack, fear of being alone, fear of … Continue reading Are your prayers full of FAITH or fear?

Your faith is weaaaaaakkkkk! I SAID WHAT I SAID! #TristaDaniell

When Paul speaks of "the secret" to being "content in any and every situation" he tells us in the next verse that secret is his faith/trust in Christ and I AM (God).

You need to forgive…yourself.

Once during self reflection, I was tasked with the question, "Who are you really upset with?" ...after hesitation, I realized the root of the anger was towards myself. The reason is not important, but the outcome was like a healing balm to my soul. I was trapped in anger...that I was directing towards others out … Continue reading You need to forgive…yourself.

The Lies We Tell

I try to avoid lying whenever I can. I believe that whole "honesty is the best policy" thing embedded in our heads as children primarily because I got my 🤬 beat for telling "little" lies enough to develop an aversion to lying - or so I thought. Recently in self-reflection, I was mulling about being … Continue reading The Lies We Tell

Kindness should be…earned?

I've always been a gentle person when it comes to dealing with other people. I know what it's like to feel unwanted, tolerated, and shunned so I make it my duty to treat others as kind as I possibly can because I might be the only kindness they experience that day. These days, people celebrate … Continue reading Kindness should be…earned?

You say you want to be healed, but….do you? Really?

You say you want to be healed, But everyday you wake up You take a knife to your wounds And cloak yourself in the trauma of your pain. Refusing any alternative. You wail through the streets With blood stained garments Making a scene of your suffering every place you go.... A chorus of complaints arise … Continue reading You say you want to be healed, but….do you? Really?

Breaking point…(suicidal thoughts)

You can choose to let "it" break you or you can refuse to be broken. Easier said than done, I know, but the truth is what it is. Strength is a choice. Endurance is...a choice. Your survival? A choice. Most of us suffer more than we should because we choose pain over healing. Healing is … Continue reading Breaking point…(suicidal thoughts)
