Do I have the right to cry ?

Do you accept me with my wounds ?

Do i have the right to complain even though some aspect of my life can appear good ?

Do i have the luxury to be vulnerable when you see me as a strong person and all I need is someone I can lean on?

Can I lean on you without upsetting you?

Can I be me with the world without fearing to be accepted?

Can I just take a moment to cry, be on the floor and feel sorry for myself without fearing of the gaze of the society or my “friends” ostracizing me?

Can just I just be me even thought i do not know who Me is ?

“Accepting you”

Accepting you

by Saran P King

For many years people have been trying to change what God has made perfect. I don’t know what is happening all around the world apart from what I see on the television, read on the internet or hear on the radio. I can therefore only speak about what happens in my neck of the woods, here in the Caribbean and, more specifically, in Antigua and Barbuda where I live.

To me most of us here in the Caribbean are still unknowingly mentally enslaved, a consequence of the days of slavery under the UK rule. We believe that if something is from another country then it is better, or the lighter your skin the more beautiful you are, or the longer your hair the “nicer” or “better” it is, and for me, that is mental slavery.

Below are a few tips you can use to guide you to make lasting lifestyle changes. And the great thing about it, you can start them at any time of the year.

  • Get an annual medical checkup even if you don’t have any underline condition. Visit your doctor more regularly if you have any chronic illness like Diabetes or High Blood Pressure.

Maybe I’m just one of those people who as my mother would say won’t take telling but I want to try this again. This being an Antigua and Barbuda Readers Choice Book of the Year thingamajigee.

Hell, we don’t have any other kind of book award and there was a time when we weren’t producing enough books to merit one. But for a 170 square mile country – if we’re counting only the two main/inhabited islands – we have considerably increased our output in this area (there are 43 44 books/CDs listed here). So, why not give it a go. With no Wadadli Pen 2019 Challenge planned, this #readAntiguaBarbuda initiative fills that void re community engagement (in a comparatively low maintenance way). Realizing that we launched this very late last year and did not leave sufficient time for readers to read and recommend (though that doesn’t explain why authors didn’t…
