#Repost @biancajasminelawson with @get_repost ・・・ Many of the representations of Black people dealing with substance abuse on television often has a weird comedic undertone, but Darla’s struggle isn’t; it’s full of dignity. How does it feel to give a character like her, such a redemptive portrayal on Queen Sugar? . “..I can hope and pray and cross my fingers and hope that I’m doing something truthful, but you never know 100% because you’re trying to do the best you can—as true to life as can be. You don’t know if you never lived it. But then when people come up to you and tell you, “No, I really went through this, and I’m telling you this is so true to my life,” that [confirmation] is the greatest gift ever. Better than any award for me. It means that you, in some way, are giving a voice to people’s stories that no one ever hears or sees, and shining a light in a way that’s not funny or this heightened thing. Just showing someone’s real life—and maybe it’s healing or makes them feel not so alone, and it makes them feel seen.” Thank you @radsadblackbry @bust_magazine For this lovely interview 💜💜💜.

Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there. For those of you who are asking the question should I call my father today ? Even though I’m pissed at him. My advice would be yes… Take The burden of unforgivenes off of your shoulders , forgiveness is a powerful beautiful thing. It frees you! So call or text your dad today. Even if he doesn’t deserve it ! Do it for you !! Life is not promised we never know what’s going to Happen. Some people wished that they had been the bigger person but it’s too late . You cannot give what you didn’t get ! Some of the dads out there never received love , so it’s hard for them to give it but you can be the bigger person. ❤️❤️❤️❤️🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
