Book Club Series Introduction
Unapologetic living for me is all about taking back my power to be myself without shame. Without caring about the boxes, people try to put me in. Without being upset about the lies, people have created with the hope of destroying my character. Without hiding or trying to convince people, I am kind, worthy or desperately screaming, “PICK ME!

During our discussion, I shared how I have the willpower to stop swearing because I turn it off when it counts. I do not curse at church. I don’t curse while servicing clients, or when in professional settings. I do not curse around my Aunties or around any other person I admire.

I have to cease to be reckless with my mouth even while joking. Continue reading
