The extraordinary and extensively talented Queen Latifah has made it very clear that she places a high value on her privacy. However, back in 2009, she shared that she too is a Survivor of sexual violence in childhood. Link
It is often inspiring for Survivors of abuse & violence to see and hear from other Survivors. Sometimes, it’s just that flashlight you need to get through dark times.
10 Inspiring Quotes from Survivor Queen Latifah
“When I was around 18, I looked in the mirror and said, ‘You’re either going to love yourself or hate yourself.’ And I decided to love myself. That changed a lot of things.”
You just have to connect with people who believe in your vision and who will work with you and advance your cause.
No one ever got ahead by going through the motions. You have to constantly be improving yourself. Make your life the masterpiece you want it to be.
Fear can be good when you’re walking past an alley at night or when you need to check the locks on your doors before you go to bed, but it’s not good when you have a goal and you’re fearful of obstacles. We often get trapped by our fears, but anyone who has had success has failed before.
Let your inner queen’s voice come through loud and clear. Be strong, be authentic, be you, and you’ll do her proud.
I really don’t know how to be anyone else, and whenever I try to be anyone else, I fail miserably. Or I disappoint myself. It doesn’t build my self-esteem, and it doesn’t help me grow me at all.
Sometimes I pray when I really feel like I need God to help me with something, and sometimes we just have conversations. We just kick it.
