After all the buzz, I finally listened to Kelly Rowland’s new single, “Dirty Laundry.” She sings about her abusive relationship that she kept concealed,as well as her envy of Beyonce. There have been so many speculations about this song, but after carefully listening to the lyrics, she has freed herself, and that’s why she’s able to talk freely about it, and it has given life to her bottled up gifts.
We don’t always have the courage to free ourselves from the strongholds that mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically enslave us…We live lies, walk out that front door, as if all is well and we go on with our everyday lives. Our minds are twisted and hell ridden, but we haven’t figured out how to let go, how to ask/scream/shout for help. We begin to rationalize, because we’ve been taught, “What goes on in this house, stays in this house!” Well, some things need to be screamed to the rooftop. I think she opened a freeway for women who live lies all of the time, and are afraid to admit it. We want to pretend to have it all together, and we may want to even be happy for the next person, but we don’t know how, because we have no idea of what true happiness even looks like. That’s why we can’t even celebrate the next woman/person, because of our own insecurities – self-inflicted, or by someone else who didn’t truly love us. Sometimes, airing your dirty laundry, can be the your road to a clean slate of love, security and freedom. http://youtu.be/Kxgod9lSHTA
