We're left to deal with it in our own community without outside influences, judging it, but we got our own ship that we have to deal with, but on top of that. We have to fight on the outside. No. When we were when we were brought here, we were stripped of our dignity. I don't know I don't know. You. Know I know that my roots are Cameroonian in Ghanaian, but I don't know what tribe I was from I. Don't know what my my family there. I don't know traditions I. Don't know our our link, my original language. Can you imagine being put on a boat for months? You're laying in other. People's throw up and feces and dead bodies laying on a boat. You get to a country. And you're just you don't speak the language and you're being yelled and screamed at to work to built. And you have no clue what is going on. All you know is when you don't do what they tell you to do. They beat you. Learn to do what they tell you to do. And to be quiet and that has been going through our culture.

You ever cry a lot, but. That's how cry bet with bear. With a licensed professional. I have to be honest on this show. We obviously talk a lot about therapy. We talk a lot about edifying yourself. We talk a lot about taking care of yourself. Your feelings resentments. Your fears at the and I realized that not has time to drive to a therapist. Not Everyone I mean. They're so expensive.
