You're entitled to live a life free of drama and baggage. You're entitled to have the freedom of self. Most times the rights we fight so hard for are the ones we need to let go of in order to be truly free. Society teaches that we have the right to have low self esteem. That we have the right to feel inferior to everybody else because of facts in history. People teach us that's its okay to harbor hatred in your heart for someone even if all you do know of them is the color of their skin. People teach you that no matter how hard you try there will always be someone waiting to be a stumbling block in your way. The media teaches you that important matters and news are extinct. Instead the latest fashion and dance craze is the norm. You are entitled to feel how you choose about this world and the people in it. While you judge those things please understand complaining never solved a thing. The only one person you have 100% authority over is self and there is plenty you can do about that individual. You are entitled to wake up every morning with a smile on your face and say today I will make a difference in someone's life. You are entitled to go against the statistic that puts you in a failure category. You are entitled to walk in freedom not because a man decided to abolish slavery but because THE MAN came and freed you when HE went to Calvary. You are entitled to pull up your pants and pull down the barriers that have kept so many bound mentally for years. You are entitled to cover up and still feel beautiful. You are entitled to get an education and gain knowledge, to get a better understanding of where you came from in order to gain a sense of direction as to where you are headed. Feel entitled to do better for yourself. You are entitled to have a life that you can be proud of instead of a life that other people say you deserve. They say history will repeat itself if people don't learn about it. Thing is people learn about it but they don't care about it. Value is no longer a thing of the present for most. It's impossible for people to value others if they have yet to place any on themselves. You are entitled to feel valuable and treat yourself as well as others the same way. You are entitled to put down the guns and pick up a book. Let go of the grudges and grab a vision. Strive for change, work towards a change, expect a change...because you are entitled.
