Maya’s Pains.

“I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.” – Maya Angelou

Breakdown: Hmm hmm hmmm. I think everyone of us can totally relate to this one, cos it’s mighty easy to “lash out” when you’re under pressure, but then, what good fruit does that ever yield? A calm and collected mind always has an edge over a distraught and unruly one.
We are simply being admonished by (Mama) Maya here not to let our pain affect others. Watch the things you say and do when you’re in pain, because you just might set someone on an even more excruciatingly path of pain.#BearYourPain #DontBecomeOne #IhavePains #IamNotOne #Quotes #WisdomQuotes #LifeLessons…

Fact: This quote was taken out of the many lessons that Maya Angelou learned. This great poet, civil right activist, writer of essays, autobiographies, books, plays, movies, television shows, (and so on) lived between April 4, 1928- May 28,2014.
She actually worked with Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X at a point in her life. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays and several books of poetry.
Before she was ever a writer she did other jobs as a youth. For example, she was a fry cook, sex worker, night club dancer and performer to mention a few.
She did not let her background define her, nor her pain rob her of gain!

  1. Hmmmm….Lashing out under pressure is something that happens without even thinking about it, But well said “Watch the things you say and do when in pain” I believe the best remedy is to be silent…Stay silent when angry,when forced to speak against another or when a person’s reputation may be at stake…Believe me,there are people who are very good at “Poking” You know for instance Piercing through a fruit or solid-liquid substance till it burst forth,at those periods,Self-Control makes the difference…Plus let’s not forget Self control is also a fruit of the spirit…*Winks* #Okbye
