Forget about others stereotyping us at our expense; drop it for one moment.
Think of the self-imposed limitations we place with no external help.
Self-stereotyping is a hidden alliance against our person.
Become aware of it. Challenge it. Change it. It’s very much open and pliable to our circumstances, and we’re more than our circumstances.
Allow the truth to bear itself — not ours; God’s. It’s a beautiful truth beyond any stereotype we can dream up. God’s into reality, truth; not dreams — inflated or poisonous.
The truth about us is always wondrous.
