“✌🏽of ☮️: Protecting YOUR Energy w/My Sis Tierra Whack
Do you ever feel like you have to protect your energy??? Tune in for some vibes and 💎 💎 @tierrawhack.” — Alicia Keys
Being our authentic self comes with many perks — including living our truth and honoring our highest selves from moment to moment. But as wonderful as it is to shine, it does sometimes come with some obstacles.
Namely? Haters. Naysayers and judgment-makers tend to see our light as distracting rather than inspiring — a projection of their own unwillingness (and fear) to dare to be who they really are. In this Instagram post, Alicia sits down with Philly native rapper and R&B artist Tierra Whack about how to deal (or not) when the occasion strikes.
“I used to focus on that person that’s not vibing, but instead I just focus on the people that are,” Tierra shares, before going on to say that cultivating inner confidence is a must. “You feel like people are looking at you like, ‘Wow, she’s really herself’ and it, like, scares them because they’re not comfortable in their own skin. They’re still trying to figure it out.”
Spoken like a woman who knows how to protect her vibe — while keeping her heart open in the process.
