    Overcoming Feelings of Hopelessness

    in Self Help






    April 3, 2014 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE: with Tiny Stallings-Clark, Celebrated Poet, Motivational Speaker and Author of “I Choose to Live”

    THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:  As a result of your hopelessness, you don't see your friends, you isolate yourself, you don't exercise and you don't try anything new. All of this just adds to your depression and hopelessness. You spiral down in a whirlpool of sadness. If you're hopeless, you're bound to have thoughts like: "It's hopeless, so it would be a waste of time to try." Because of such thoughts, you don't do anything and you remain hopeless. Because we are what we think, this further confirms that you're right. Your hopelessness becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. How can we overcome our feelings of hopelessness?

    Tiny Stallings-Clark is a celebrated poet and a spirit oriented motivational speaker She is a graduate of Tennessee State University and works professionally as a Civil Engineer. Tiny has spoken at many venues around the country, including Women For Incarcerated Women, The Women Unlimited Association, Churches and various Writer's Conferences. Tiny has been inducted in the International Society of Poets as a Life member.

    Apart from God, you can do NOthing

    in Spirituality

    John 15:5

    New International Version
    "I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing"

    Some of us think that we brought ourselves here, therefore we abuse the body that he gave us, whether it's sex, alcohol, drugs, tattos and many other things. God is your maker and it's time we recognize that.

    "The emergence ofthe Black Panther Party in Oakland, California, in 1966 was one of the great moments in the history ofthe struggle for Black free­dom and deep democracy in the United States of America. This courageous and visionary group ofyoung Black people decided to highlight the fundamen­tal pillar of white supremacy and antidemocratic practice against Black peo­ple-namely, the vicious and unaccountable repressive actions of white police power over Black folk. Like Ida B. Wells-Barnett's heroic stance against the red terror of lynching and Jim Crow over a century ago, the Black Panther Party tried to exert democratic control over the arbitrary public violence of the U.S . nation-state that maimed and murdered Black citizens. Such organized efforts are rare in American history because they always result in Black leaders and activists paying the ultimate price of death and destruction. The Black Panther Party led by Huey Newton, Bobby Seale, David Hilliard, and others-took up this gallant challenge in the midst ofthe great awakening in the 1960s. 
    The founding of the precious experiment of democracy in the United States was based, in large part, on the niggerization of African peoples. This centuries-long process of niggerization was not simply the enslavement and exploitation of Blackpeople. It also aimed to keep Black people scared, intimi­dated, disrespectful, and distrustful of each other and doomed to helplessness and hopelessness. The basic goals of niggerization were to promote white greed and hatred; its primary strategies to secure these goals were racist ideology that degrades and devalues Black people and racist violence that terrorizes Black people.

    Stop The Killing, Start The Building Pt. 4

    in Current Events

    I don’t condone the violence on our streets or in our homes or work places. I believe that anyone that commits a violent act against another except in saving his own life or the life of someone else, should be punished under the laws of their country. Violence in the Black community is the result of being put in a controlled environment and all necessities taken away and we are forced to survive.  Anger builds up as we are denied real jobs that can pay for food, clothing, shelter, and recreation.  This feeling of hopelessness is passed down to the younger generations.  Alcohol and drugs are introduced as a anesthesia to numb the effects of the reality of their present situation of being homeless, no money, no food, but everyone can put on for a cheap drink or a bag of reggie (weed).  Parents and children smoking and drinking alcohol creates a powder keg with a short fuse.  Generic food and medicine are introduced into this controlled environment and we become #1 in all health issues.  Then you flood the community with quick kill automatic weapons of mass destruction and make the readily accessible.  Distrust is at an all-time high.  You can’t trust the doctor, the police, politicians, justice system or each other.  You can’t relate to most of them because they don’t look like you and they can’t begin to image what you are going through.  and if they did look like you, you won’t trust them. Frustration, hopelessness, and fear mounts.....................
