with Andréa Ranae Johnson
There is no sustainability in overriding your needs and capacities in order to serve your communities.
There is no sustainability in obligating yourself to show up in certain ways because you "should."
There is no sustainability in disregarding everything you do for others as not enough.
There is no justice in denying your power and privilege so that you can avoid doing harm.
There is no justice in forcing yourself to do labor that is not yours to do simply because you "can."
There is no justice in assuming what another person or group of people need based on their identities.
There is no liberation in withholding your gifts, ideas and visions because they aren't perfect.
There is no liberation in trying to control how others show up because it's the "right" way.
There is no liberation in carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders – alone.
