i'm not mad. i'm a writer.

There was this angel named Lucifer. He wanted to be like God, so he created a riff in Heaven trying to take away the shine from God for his own glory. He refused to give God credit for creating him,…This is how a lot of people operate today. I call it Demonic Inspiration.

Demonic inspiration leads to murder, hating, competition, comparison, ghosting, an inability to be genuine and supportive. This is a real thing. Some people are inspired by your take off but they won’t ever tell you. They try their best to downplay who you are. I’m even convinced those people who act like they’re cool with you but their behavior never matches their words or so called support, are DI (demonically inspired). You know who they are, you’re just too afraid to confront the truth. The truth is not hard to see when you’re ready to deal with it. There are some people around you who watch what you do intently and it gives them the inspiration to do what they do.

In most cases, there’s nothing wrong with this but not with the DI! Let me explain. If it’s a celebrity, most of these people who use you as their muse have no problem giving credit to them as their fav. They have no problem telling people about someone who’s famous, someone they can’t deny. But there’s a serious problem with people who think you’re still a secret or not at the top of your game yet, and they try to benefit off of that. In some cases they work hard to keep you a secret. They won’t support or tell people about you because they draw all their content from you. It’s definitely DI when they try to take off without celebrating you as a person who inspired them too. I’ll have people call me their mentor when it comes to me being a playwright, but they never come to my shows. That’s demonic inspiration. DI’s are the people who private message you asking for your help and resources. They’ll ask me “who does your sets?” “Who does your lights, costumes,…” They will blow up your email asking you for your secrets to your success and then in the meantime want to play it publicly like they didn’t get your support to get off the ground.

It’s disingenuous and fake. If you’re inspired by something you see from someone tell them, and don’t message them privately. Celebrate them publicly. Don’t try to keep people who inspire you a secret. That’s demonic and sneaky. This also speaks to your insecurity. There’s enough room for all of us to go to the next level, but when you refuse to express how much someone’s courage and creativity has inspired you, that’s not a good look for you. My real life coachable friends are not haters. They are not afraid to give honor where honor is due. There was this movie back in the day called Single White Female, and the girl got close to a woman she was inspired by only to try and clone her. It got really weird. That’s how you know it’s demonic inspiration. My advice for those struggling in this area – Get in the face of God and ask Him to reveal who and what He’s called you to do. I promise He will heal you. Then you won’t have to steal ideas from anyone and pretend they came from you.
