- The Law of Attraction says that whatever you put into the universe you will get back from the universe. Think negative thoughts and you will receive negativity, think positive thoughts and you will receive positivity.
I apply this to my everyday life. If I expect shade from the community I will get shade from the community. If I expect to fail, I will fail. On the other hand if I expect to have supporters there will be people who genuinely support me. If I expect to positively change someone’s perspective and life then it will happen. Now that is not to say that haters and shadiness simply goes away. The haters are meant to hate. It is their job to do so. Lord knows, if you put a group of gay black men together in one place shade will be thrown. The difference – I have a positive outlook on life, I don’t see it. I am able ignore it with ease. I am able to remain confident in my life purpose. I am able to overcome and move forward regardless without even addressing any negativity.
I say this to say to my fellow young gay/bi black men, do you above all! Always strive to change yourself, grow and learn. When things grow, they also change. Any living thing that is not changing is not growing and anything that is not growing is dying. Choose to live! Choose to be the best you, you can be. MPowered People Make Healthier Choices!
