You think because he doesn’t love you that you are worthless. You think that because he doesn’t want you anymore that he is right - that his judgement and opinion of you are correct. If he throws you out, then you are garbage. You think he belongs to you because you want to belong to him. Don’t. It’s a bad word, ‘belong.’ Especially when you put it with somebody you love. Love shouldn’t be like that. Did you ever see the way the clouds love a mountain? They circle all around it; sometimes you can’t even see the mountain for the clouds. But you know what? You go up top and what do you see? His head. The clouds never cover the head. His head pokes through, beacuse the clouds let him; they don’t wrap him up. They let him keep his head up high, free, with nothing to hide him or bind him. You can’t own a human being. You can’t lose what you don’t own. Suppose you did own him. Could you really love somebody who was absolutely nobody without you? You really want somebody like that? Somebody who falls apart when you walk out the door? You don’t, do you? And neither does he. You’re turning over your whole life to him. Your whole life, girl. And if it means so little to you that you can just give it away, hand it to him, then why should it mean any more to him? He can’t value you more than you value yourself.

They call me stubborn, I call it loving myself.
Black Family is The Foundation of Black Power. Remember as @Oba_tayo posted that BLACK POWER DOESN’T MEAN ANTI-WHITE. It means Black Solidarity, Black Unison, Black Economics, Black Independence, BLACK LOVE and most importantly Self-Love.
When Black Men and Women can resist this society built to keep them apart magic is created. Humanity started with Black Love. We don’t say these things to come off as some superior, we say these things because too many black people don’t realize the power of the black family. We have fallen so far from striving to keep the black family strong, and that is why our civilization suffers as a whole. The first step of Black power is a strong black family. It’s the foundation.

Love is so free and it should feel just like that. You don’t own love so you gotta give it freely. Love is divine.
