Ban 6 paragraph IG captions. This is precious rest time being spent writing and reading it.

If I send you a playlist I made it is not an invitation for you to send one immediately back. Vibe and listen to what I shared, then send something if you want. This isn’t a DJ Battle. 😫😂

Sent some friends this playlist and before the text could go thru, 2 of them sending one of their playlists back. You ain’t even listened to what I offered yet. Lol. 😂

I’m exhausted by the energy of buying/selling during the holiday season. It’s wild.

Spending a bunch of money then the labor of wrapping gifts/wasting paper, then all the labor of putting up 8 feet trees, and overeating. Why is this the way this culture celebrates a religious holiday? We end the year exhausted and broke. So on brand. So over it.

More human-ness. Less machine-like.

More telepathic, slow grieving. Less rushing to put up the perfect post.

I wish people could be ushered into their transition without all the forced, quick and press release feeling social media posts. I wish we could whisper our grief for them and their family into the atmosphere quietly without rushing to find the right photo to post on IG.

Work is overrated and this idea that you gotta grind yourself into exhaustion and make work the center of your entire existence is not liberating. I’m not doing it. Period. My Ancestors have labored enough for this wicked system. Imma rest. Join me.

To not be brainwashed by the lies this culture has taught us about labor, work and rest is life-changing. I’m so happy to be unrealistic about the ways I can navigate a capitalist world. I will say it again: the idea of productivity in a capitalist system is a scam.

Everything about living in this culture is gaslighting. Stay clear. Rest.

The Nap Ministry retweeted
WORTH HEARING: This is a great convo between @trymainelee and @TheNapMinistry's #TriciaHersey: "I think the time to rest is even more important now because we need new ideas. We need to heal. We need to create and imagine a new world." podcasts.apple.com/us/podcas…

When I tell you I know grind culture is brainwashing us - my vacation responder is so clear and direct. People read it and still request labor from me. Follow up and send multiple emails. Very zombie like.
