If your life were a rubber band, would you be flaccid or a stretched one?
The secret is believing in yourself that you can do it. No human is limited and it’s always possible to break a barrier.
What if everything you are experiencing today is below your average potential? Have you ever tasted limit of what is possible? Don’t you think God expect more of you than what He gave you?
What if the goal of life is to become everything that is possible given what you have now? What if the goal of life is to become the best, highest, most loving versions of yourself? What if you are expected to take what you have and double it? What does that look like in each of your individual context? Where do you limit yourself ?

You are not maximizing your existence because you lack self belief. You are probably too lazy to test your limit. You will be surprised to know that you have more capacity to survive than you believe. God is just asking you to take everything He gave you and push to the next level.
For people who can’t or rather won’t understand because it’s easier to hate them if you can misinterpret them. The first quarter of 2020 MEANS April through June 2020. The new tax year begins in April. How are this many people reaching adulthood not knowing what Quarter 1 is???
From memory, and someone will surely have the receipt, the transitional year was meant to mean continued funding until Harry and Meghan had another source of income. That means initially Charles agreed to fund them April 2020 to end of March 2021 Charles cut them off July 2020.
Harry has an inheritance that’s likely into the millions, but they also need security that costs into the millions. Especially because the press has riled up the public into a hate filled frenzy which likely means death threats/ real attempts
To recap, after not being able to earn an income as a working royal, Charles cut off his son after 3 months knowing they had a security cost burden into the millions due to threat that they inherited and that the palaces at the v least did nothing to diffuse when it escalated
Why would you do this to your own child?
Yes we aren’t talking of them being instantly broke, but of a very real security threat that only exists because he is Charles and Diana’s son/the Queens grandson, and as a visible ex-serviceman and a cost of several millions to cover it
That’s not to mention the escalation in threat once the vitriol against Meghan started.
So yes Harry and Meghan began to look for sources of income that would meet their financial needs to cover security and their charitable ones. But why are the BRF/Bmedia so mad about it?
Well no one cuts off their child 3 months into a 1 year arrangement if they aren’t using finance and in this case the very real threat of danger to life to coerce them into doing what they want. It’s financial and emotional abuse and bad parenting for rich people 101
They wanted Harry and Meghan to fail.
To crawl back and quietly take whatever abuse they were dealt from the media with the knowledge that the physical safety it afforded them was contingent on their silence. That their mental health meant nothing & they could never leave.
All of this safety will go away if they stepped out of line again. They should take Meghan being demonised for existing by the media for wearing the wrong colour tights or nail polish, or eating avocados. As long as it makes the heir and his spouse look good by comparison.
And the warning shot was having their physical safety put at direct risk. No more funding for security, locations revealed etc. In the hope that the cost would send them running back. But they said no.
Wealth doesn’t mean that you can’t be made to feel scared, or powerless, or small in the face of the machinery working to keep you trapped & quiet. Harry and Meghan said no, despite all that. It takes a lot to walk away knowing it might be the end of everything you know .
But they did walk away. They negotiated multimillion dollar deals in order to be able to fund their security AND continue their charitable works. So what now? What can the BRF do now they they didn’t fail?
The media isn’t misconstruing every third word accidentally. You don’t accidentally misunderstand someone saying their child likes books read TO THEM as a 2 year old is reading their own books. You don’t pretend the meaning of Quarter 1 has somehow been changed.
And all of this ‘misinterpretation’ doesn’t just conveniently coincide with bad news about the ones who didn’t dare to leave. This is continued punishment, and an example to others stay in line or you will never know peace.
The BRF could have had everything the Harry and Meghan have achieved from books, to charity events to tv programs as part of their own successes. If only they’d been willing to stand up for them even a little.
But they’d rather not be made to look bad for doing barely anything in comparison. If the ‘journalists’ who supposedly report without ‘fear or favour’ actually reported THE truth rather than their own made up version of it once in a while I wonder if anything would change?
At the moment they seem intent on reinventing facts and added interpretation where the truth speaks for itself. They really are telling people to reject the evidence of their own eyes and ears.
Where is the article decrying use of a helicopter 47 TIMES by the man doing the environment documentary? Where is the reporting on the empty easy jet PR stunt that was used to make heir and spouse look like ‘normal’ people when Harry and Meghan were caught using private jet?
Harry and Meghan are human, they will make genuine mistakes. But they are out there trying their BEST in an environment/media that is waiting for them to fail, to stumble, to err so they can make money from writing about it, deflect bad news with it, say I told so.
So, many of my fellow Meghan Markle supporters and Sussexsquad members have been trying to understand why so many Meghan Markle trolls have turned out to be middle-aged white women from the U.S.
Let me break down my thoughts as why these women are so upset…..
The first thing most Meghan Markle supporters say is “They’re American!! Why do they even care who a British Prince marries?!!” To understand this, you need to realize that middle-aged white Americans were the first generation to be raised on Disney Princesses…
These women as children watched Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty all fall in love with, and be saved by handsome princes. As they grew up, many subconsciously expected their own lives to follow this narrative, at least in respect to finding Mr. Right.. .
Additionally, right around the time that many of these women were coming of age, Prince Charles and Princess Diana were getting married. Many of these American women saw this fairy tale wedding and marriage as confirmation that childhood dreams could become a reality.
It’s also important to understand that at this time, Ronald Reagan had recently been elected on the promise of restoring conservative values and American greatness. The U.S. had just come out of a brutal civil rights era, a failed Vietnam War, and the Iran hostage crisis…
So, Charles and Diana’s wedding did two major things for white American women at the time: 1. It showed an old, powerful, and white world power still holding prestige and tradition. 2. Made the childhood dream of marrying a prince and living happily ever after appear real…
These women got married and had children around the same time that Diana did. Their lives seemed to parallel. They saw a bit of themselves in Diana as their own marriages failed and they struggled to discern fantasy from real life issues and problems…
After Diana tragically died, many felt a strong connection to William and Harry. They placed on the boys the same dreams they had for their own children. They aspired again for the dream. If they and Diana couldn’t have it, maybe the boys could…
And the dream, for them, is the white Disney princess. Kate easily delivered this ideal in 2011, as was seen with this very popular image that circulated all over the internet after William and Kate’s marriage….
These women expected for Harry to one day do the same. But, alas, he didn’t. Instead, he fell in love with, and married a mixed-race American divorcee. Their dreams had been shattered…..
1. Because Meghan had been divorced. Disney princesses don’t get divorced! They are supposed to marry their first love and live happily ever after! 2. Because she is mixed-race…and this one is the big one… but probably not because of what you think……
Yes, some of these women are overtly racist. They just flat out don’t like people of colour, but I think the biggest reason that Meghan’s race is a such problem for these women is because it drags up racial sludge that permeates all of American society….
These women want “the dream” and divorce and blackness are a reality. Half of all marriages end in divorce. America has a long and sordid history of racial inequality and abuse. Meghan forces them to look at ugly truths in their own lives, while Kate still gives them the fantasy.
And Lord, these women are attached to the dream. They want the boys to have the perfect lives, wives, and children. William and Kate have been excellent at giving them exactly what they want. Until the last couple of weeks, they’ve seemed absolutely flawless in the press…
However, we’ve seen only realness with Meghan. From her awful half-sister, to her divorce, to her struggling as an actress, to her father selling pictures to the tabloids…we have only seen the real, and that infuriates these middle-aged white American women sold on “the dream”.
But their dream is their dream. They are entitled to it. To the rest of us, Meghan is an inspiration precisely because she is so very real. She is a beautiful new dream rooted in something very few dreams are….reality. ❤
And it’s important to remember that Not all white American women of age hate Meghan. Many, many love and adore her. I’m just trying to explain why so many older, white American women are so incredibly anti Meghan…
