What does oppression do to my mental health?
It stifles growth and creativity. It is detrimental to my health in every way. I cannot function optimally when I am experiencing oppression.
In my last blog I stated that oppression leads to death. Death of ideas, death of success, death of life. I cannot truly live under the suffocating presence of oppression.
So why do I see and experience oppression daily? I know that it is not ‘just in my head.’ Oppression is real and it is felt consistently throughout my being. I cannot pretend to assume the reasons why people choose to oppress others; however, I do know that it is not a feeling that anyone would wish on themselves. So why do people oppress each other unmercifully?
I do not want to live under the burden of oppression any longer. I cannot sacrifice my mental health and wellness to oppression any longer.
Today I vow to resist and oppose oppression in my life and in the lives of others forever!
