Self-Awareness is Uncomfortable But It’s Sexy: I Cry, He Cry, You Cry, We Cry & Heal Together is a collection of thoughts, phrases, poems and essays that challenges black readers from poverty driven environments to go on a journey of peeling back the uncomfortable layers of their family history, relationships and personal identity in order to break the barriers that keep us from loving, depending on and growing with one another.
“Self-Awareness is extremely uncomfortable but it’s sexy. It requires Self-Accountability which is difficult for many people to do because it requires one to remove the filter from their lenses and see themselves for who they truly are and how their behavior affects others. “Leaving the Comfort Zone.” This journey is scary and it hurts. Those who are self-aware and who are fully accountable for their actions are the most attractive and rewarding beings. Self-awareness is very difficult to achieve because it requires being alone and many of us do not like isolation. But when its achieved the greatest love presents itself,” says Davis.
