Sometimes to heal we must do the very things we try to avoid.
Dr. Maya Angelou said that courage is doing what needs to be done before you're forced to do it. And sometimes we don't do it, because we go into resistance, denial, fear.
Intimacy means "into you I see."

Your breaking point is your breakthrough.
—Bishop T.D. Jakes
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
There just comes a moment that no matter how much you want them to or how hard you try or how loud you talk, people simply cannot hear you above their wounds and brokenness. And to continue to talk or insist, or to try to get them to hear becomes an act of violence.
You are not sorry. You are not sorry. You are keeper of the temple. You [are] just cleaning the temple, baby. You're not sorry. Don't ever be sorry. Forgive me, yes, but never sorry.
All I have to do is [to] show up because I know that my presence is enough. My presence is enough. The clearer you get in here, the more you will attract people that will support you.
You get to be the master of your own fate. You get to be the captain of your own soul. If you just manage that. If you just [take] care your own territory.
What are you resisting? What are you pushing against? What are you not allowing? What are you blocking?
Every path has led to this moment. Every breath, every mistake has brought you to this right-now moment so that you [can] make another choice. Don't diminish that. You're going to be held accountable for the good that has been sown into your spirit.
