There is nothing more horrifiying, frustrating, and anxiety inducing than having your privacy violated.
In my 333 years on Earth I have been recorded without permission, stalked, had my emails hacked, and, I square to Bob, had a drone flying in my backyard.
Now the drone thing was around the holiday and could have been some man child playing with a new electronic.
I have never ever been a fan of email or social media.
Shit, to keep it 5000 I have never been a fan of computers.
The virtual mask is an especially wily one. People create stories about you and themselves and then act from this cloudy space in the real world.
About 4-5 years ago I linked up with someone my people ALWAYS told me NOT to speak to or deal with since I was a teenager.
There is nothing like a flock of older Jamaicans who don’t like somebody.
Shout out to y’all-I was hard headed- I am sorry.
Listen to the wise older individuals you trust in your life. They know.
Dealing with this individual cost me about $2k and who knows how much emotionally and mentally. It was the beginning of a spiral of bad vibes.
I was embarrassed, ashamed, and hurt.
I didn’t want to tell anyone for a while about all that happened – but holding on to negative emotions, thoughts, and stories is a recipe for disaster.
Things got a lot worst before they got better.
They began to get better when I sought out healthy help.
Today, as I was going through my emails his full ass name popped up on some one travel thing to redeem points (?)- just seeing his name made me want to throw up – why he would even be utilizing my email address is beyond me.
All that shame resurfaced but not for long- because I have the tools now to deal.
I thank God for Brené Brown because I am now unafraid to face shame.
I caught my thoughts before they spiraled – I called and spoke to the right people and have a plan of action.
Shame is the illest silencer-
DO NOT LET SHAME SILENCE YOU.
USE YOUR VOICE.
Don’t let anyone harass you quietly behind a screen or to your face.
God didn’t give any of us a spirit of fear and anybody trying to scare you is working for the other side of things.
You feel me?

Writer’s Note: Sir(s) this is a public request to leave me alone. It is all peace here and we would like to keep it that way.
