The Price of Standing Still.

I will never tell you going from a state of standing still to moving is easy. Once you are in motion and it becomes what you do yes it gets easier. However, the initial steps can be difficult, and there can be some fear involved. No one is telling you to go from still to sprinting. Take your time and start somewhere….one step at a time until you are walking and then finding your pace. Regain your life back by putting it in a positive forward motion. The steps you take now can be the difference between you living the life you deserve, and merely existing. The choice is yours.

The Pros and Cons of Reality TV for Young Black Women.

However, reality TV also poses some challenges and risks for these women, such as the potential for exploitation and manipulation by the media industry, and the exposure to public scrutiny, criticism, and harassment. Therefore, reality TV can be seen as a double-edged sword for Black women in their 20s, who have to balance the benefits and costs of being in the spotlight.

Love is Liberating.

. I’m in no way saying run back to those that hurt and abuse you. However, I am saying building a wall that would keep out the village will love, support, encourage, uplift, and value you is suicide. As I preciously stated, we are not built to be alone…so let’s not use that as a mask to cover healing of pain and grief that needs to happen to move forward with the life you deserve. Remember love is something you deserve…and it’s how you stay free.

Womanhood is More Than a Feeling.

This is not a position of fear nor hate. It’s more so, all feelings and experiences need to be respected. You can’t strong arm a position and define others while demanding a self-defining space. When a biological woman says don’t call me cis-gendered…respect that as much as you want pronouns respected. She has the right to define herself. The biggest issue on the table is, if all don’t agree in silence they are branded as haters and told they have a phobia.

My Purpose Predates Being a Wife.

I strongly believe every human being is born with a purpose. None of are simply here by chance. Finding one’s purpose is important as it is central to the concept of fulfillment in life. Moving with a lack of purpose can cause one to feel as though they are like a hamster on a wheel…running but getting nowhere. When the understanding of purpose is missing there can be a misunderstanding of titles, and the role they play in your life. Titles come with responsibilities and expectation based on said title. The best example that comes to mind is that of a parent. The title parent comes with a laundry list of responsibilities, and if not careful the title can easily be misunderstood as purpose. This could be why some relationships are going through challenges, because the relationship has become a place holder for purpose.

Navigating the Complex Terrain of Romantic Relationships: Black Women, Faith, and Resolutions.

Navigating romantic relationships as a Black woman involves confronting societal pressures, communication barriers, and the complexities of intersectionality.

Leave Him in Your Past.

If we’re going to be completely fair, honestly must lead the discussion. Sometimes he’s the past because the man he is simply isn’t build for the woman you are. There might have been healing that needed to happen on you part as you might have been the toxic party. If you have you healed before going back to someone you hurt. This is a difficult self-discussion because no one wants to be the one at fault…especially us. However, in this we must give the same thing we want to receive. Furthermore, in terms of growth you may have found your purpose and truly got to know who you are and what you need in a partner. Even if the brother is gold, he might not be what you need for who you are now. Of course, there are exceptions whereby the ex becomes the spouse they were always meant to be. However, in most cases…he’s an ex for a reason. We respect our past, but it is wise to move forward in purpose and that includes love. If you find yourself recycling the same relationships, and meeting the same unhappy ending its time for a new experience.

Tearing That Woman Down Won’t Help.

If we want to see progress amongst our people, our children…our community we as the women of said community have to learn how to deal with one another in love. Where there is no love there must be respect for self and principle. How we engage with one another is a reflection of the respect we have for self just as much as the woman in front of us. We already know we face adversity and harsh treatment outside of the community. Many of us have been allowed to harbor ill feelings and ones of mistrust against our own as a result of trauma, unresolved conflict, and being caught in the web of another sista’s trauma. At some point we must come together and rise in unity and respect if we are to ever thrive as a whole.
