Back in high school days, which was in the early 70s, there was a lot of racial tension in our school. I used to hear of stabbings in the restrooms, even in the girl's restroom. So I was nervous about being in the restroom whenever there would be more than one person of color in there when I was in there. I also used to be a target of a lot of bullying when I was growing up, regardless of who it was coming from. But I remember being especially nervous during these moments. So I used pot which seemed to help neutralize my fears and it made me less inhibited so that no one would bother me.
Now I no longer use pot, but have the Greater One living on the inside of me. He has given me boldness in the face of enemies.
