She’s Always In A Storm.

If your sista is in a perpetual story, you are burnt out, and need to figure out what to do. Please start with securing who you are, and where you stand as a sista. Look at your boundaries for a relationship with her, and others. If you don’t have any it’s time to create some so that you don’t eventually snap due to pressure and mistreatment. Allow yourself to demand reciprocity and balance. Allow yourself the space to be honest. If honesty, with care, costs you a sista you must consider that relationship may not have been for you. Being loyal doesn’t me allowing someone to mistreat you. Sometimes being supportive means stepping back; you can offer advice, but you can’t live for her. Sometimes she has to learn to calm the storm, and that doesn’t make you an awful sista…it makes you one that truly cares for her wellbeing.

Experience Can Be A Cage.
