Me Against the World or So I Thought

I was told once, when I was younger that it would be me against the world. Me vs the world. I believed it, and it served me well for many years.  I was driven to be the best. It strengthened my wall, and I kept people out. No chance of being hurt here! Not me. It was me against the world and doggone it, I was going to win!

How many know having the “me against the world” mentality was a breeding ground for other things? Self-centeredness, isolation, selfishness, being suspicious and defensive—all a result of adapting this mindset.  Thank God I’ve been delivered! No one should feel they are alone in the world. No one should feel that the world is out to “get them.”

There’s no denying the fact that the world is and can be an ugly place—cruel even.  Now that it’s my turn as the adult to impact a future generation, what do I say?  I’ll tell you.  I remind them of their strengths! I tell the girls and young women in my life they are beautiful, talented, and stronger than they can imagine! To the young men, I remind them of their power and ability to create a positive life even though media vilifies them.  

I’m available to listen and be fully present when needed, because I never want those I love to feel alone in the world. I want them to be aware that their voices are important and their feelings are validated. I want them to feel free to experience all emotions fully, because God gave them to us for a reason (according to my Mom. Love her!).

I’m not a mother by the way.  I’m an…

I’m so blessed that my siblings and friends allow and encourage my relationship with their children. I know this is not true for everyone which is why…
New blog post on Feasting on the Divine with Trinka Polite

My prayer is that speaking life and empowerment to the young people in my life will take root in their hearts, minds and spirits. So, when they are toe-to-toe with the world, they will not be consumed. They will be confident in who they are! And, if the world knocks them down (because it happens from time to time), they’ll know those who love them are in their corner, ready and more than happy to help them get back up!

So tell me, have you encouraged a child or young adult lately? I believe someone needs to hear from you now.

I’m Trinka Polite! Georgia native! Aunt Extraordinaire (at least I think so)! Lover of divinely delicious food! Servant of God and I gratefully accept my calling as counselor, poet, and speaker. My mission? 

As a counselor, it is to empower you to access your full potential and live more authentically!

As a poet, it is to share words to inspire love, deliverance from hurtful situations and encourage a renewed relationship with God.

As a speaker, it is to provide a dynamic experience which will actively engage you and your group in learning and growing.

My professional background includes over 14 years as a Career Counselor providing education planning and career guidance.  I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia and National Board Certified Counselor with a Master’s degree in Psychology.  My publications include After the Sixth Day: Notes from a Spiritual Journey and Pain is Fertile Ground—poetry collections focused on spiritual awakening and growth.

On a more personal note, the southern lady that I am loves to cook (have you seen my Pinterest board?) and have fun with my family!  Are there any two things that bring more joy to a G.R.I.T.S. (Girl raised in the south)? Lol 

I hope we stay connected because new ventures are on the way to enlighten your mind and to partner with you to chart a course for your success!  

Peace & Blessings!
