Unsuprisingly, the root of these perceptions lie amongst the said tribes and then spread across the board.

You’re sexual. You’re soulful. You’re emotional. You’re spiritual. You’re magic. You’re both of the light and the dark. You’re Human! DON’T DENY ANY ASPECTS OF WHO YOU ARE. A healthy soul is a ”whole” soul.

” Yes! I am of the Yoruba tribe, I can still be all of these things”

….a broken mindset is when you think it’s perfectly ok to show up to someone’s house without notice, & expect to be fed.
