Tell me how you deal with difficulties in your life and I can tell you about the mindset that you have.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For me, I focus on building a growth mindset. Achieving success (no matter however you define it) is really difficult when you constantly focus on your limitations, and stay rooted in the belief that you are not good enough and that you cannot improve yourself.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Building a growth mindset is necessary, and more importantly, it takes time and consistency to deepen this mindset as you move through the stages of success.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Link in the bio on my post on mindset. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo by @IamKrystalCJ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Linkinbio #Mindset #growthmindset #fixedmindset #mindsetmatters #mindsetquotes #mindsetmastery #mindsetshift #mindsetmakeover #mindsetiskey #blackwomenandtherapy #blackwomen #blackgirlsrock #mindset #abundance #mentalhealthtips #therapytips #mentalhealthawareness #blacktherapist #blackmentalhealth #kingdombuilder #faithfilled #faithfilledlife #faithfilledcaptions #faithfilledwomen #faithfulness #faithquotes #graymatthewsproject

Before, I used to dread the calendar. I felt like the days and weeks moved slower than a snail.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It took a while to realize that I felt that way because I had no sense of direction, no purpose, and no clarity. I was just drifting.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today, I am grateful for God for the shift. For shifting my perspective, my focus, and aligning me with the proper source. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am thankful for finally understanding that the things I was seeking were already in front of me and in me, I just needed to change what I was looking at and change how I saw what I was looking at.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, time is clarity. For everyday that He wakes me up, it is my privilege and wisdom to understand that I’ve been given 1 more day to live out my calling and purpose. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #purpose #calling #purposedriven #purposedrivenlife #purposefulliving #wisdom #grateful #purposeconsultant #purposebuilt #spiritualwisdom #wisdomoflife #wisdomoftheday #wisdomfeed ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blackwomenandtherapy #blackwomen #blackgirlsrock #mindset #abundance #kingdombuilder #faithfilled #faithfilledlife #faithfilledcaptions #faithfilledwomen #faithfulness #faithquotes #graymatthewsproject⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sent via @planoly #planoly

My wish for you this holiday season is that: 1. You feel loved; 2. You have the opportunity to give love without expecting anything in return and watch God multiply your faithfulness; 3. You boldly embrace, practice, and maintain the boundaries that you’ve created prior to the holiday season; 4. You remember that this too is a season and will pass, especially if this is a difficult time for you. 5. And lastly, that you dream wildly and hugely, and walk boldly in those dreams after the holidays, especially when no one is looking. Happy Holidays from @Graymatthewsproject

‼️EXTREMELY LONG POST ALERT‼️ . I read somewhere that, “happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like, and celebrating it for everything it already is,” and as I meditated on it, I immediately felt a shift in my soul. For the past couple of months I had been self-ruminating on what I felt was life crisis and what shallow material things seemed to have slipped from my grasp. It wasn’t until reading that quote that I realized I had been “doing it wrong ,”all along. While I’ve always known that happiness comes from within, I focused more on the appreciation of what our able bodies can successfully obtain. Sitting down and really being grateful for everything my life has already prospered, every person in my support system, and the fact that even when I feel knocked down, I’m never defeated, instilled a peace in me I’ve never experienced before. I thought I knew joy and peace before this day but I truly feel it now, and at a time where I literally have NOTHING. The minute I began to bask in every moment and take charge of what I already had was the minute things began to shift for me in the physical realm. I say all that to say, with the season of giving and Thanksgiving being literally around the corner, there really is no time like the present to shift your thought process on what you deem to be success, true happiness, and joy. Until you find the silver lining in your everyday life, your striving and hard work towards where you want to be will always leave you feeling some type of void, and constantly wanting more. You, right now, in this moment, are more than enough and I want you to know that you already possess everything you need to be truly happy and obtain true WEALTH! Anybody else felt all types of knocked down & defeated over the past few months? Are you struggling with finding the silver lining in your life? Or maybe you’re striving and can’t find contentment ... either way I wanna hear from you.

Okay, tell the truth, what are some bad habits that you have? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ll go first! Even with being a therapist and consultant, patience in my personal life remains one of my weakest areas. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My patience wears thin quickly for drama, mediocrity, and with myself sometimes. A lack of patience can lead to pridefulness and rigidity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is one of my ongoing self-work. I must accept responsibility when I fall short, and make amends if I hurt someone.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What about you? Name one bad habit that you will work on as we transition to a new year and decade.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #badhabit #badhabits #realtalk #realtalkquotes #realtalkonly #realtherapisttalk #reallife ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blackwomenandtherapy #blackwomen #blackgirlsrock #mindset #abundance #mentalhealthtips #therapytips #mentalhealthawareness #blacktherapist #blackmentalhealth #kingdombuilder #faithfilled #faithfilledlife #faithfilledcaptions #faithfilledwomen #faithfulness #faithquotes #graymatthewsproject

Following up on last week’s post, 5 Things To Consider When Seeking Therapy, consider these additional things to think about when seeking therapy for yourself and others. 1. Consider the style, personality, training, and specialization of the therapist you are seeking. Mental health professionals fall under various licensing boards, and across various fields within the mental health field. Again, do some research because this is an important journey that you are taking. 2. Do you have an expectation of how long you will participate in therapy? Take time to clarify your expectations because they set the tone for your behavior in therapy. In general, counseling is usually short-term and focused on resolving 1 or 2 issues. Therapy is longer and focused on healing and wellness, and doing the deep emotional work to promote healthy relationships and boundaries. 3. Be open and understand that you may go for one issue that you thought was the problem, but upon going through the therapy process, you discover a deeper truth that needs healing. You are not alone in this experience. 4. Understand that during times, such as above, therapy can get worse before it gets better. Many people will stop showing up for sessions around this point. And people will quit because the work is more than they expected. 5. Healing is not one session and done. Therefore, neither is therapy. For some people with severe and complex trauma, therapy can be lifelong, whether continuous or intermittent. For others, therapy can be weekly, bi-weekly, or even monthly, depending on the need. Some people continue in therapy for maintenance and a safe space. We all process experiences and trauma differently at different stages of our lives, so our needs are different. 6. Lastly, generic social media posts and blogposts, FB groups, and online articles are not substitutes for a personalized therapeutic relationship with a mental health professional. I hope that this post was helpful to someone, and also encouraging to help you seek out your own therapeutic relationship with a mental health professional. Please leave a comment if you have any questions.

Some days it takes more energy to find a smile than I would like. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, on those difficult days, when I make an effort to redirect my thoughts, I find that I have taken my focus off God and the opportunities in front of me and have begun focusing more on my problems.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A redirection in thoughts doesn’t mean that my problems go away...it just means that I’ve stopped making my problems bigger than my God and my own abilities.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thoughts #thoughtredirection #myGod #thoughtstoponder #thoughtsoftheday #thoughtstoliveby #thoughtsandprayers #thoughtsinmyhead #faith #faithfulthoughts #faithfilledthoughts #faithfilledlife #faithfilled #faithfilledcaptions⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blackwomenandtherapy #blackwomen #blackgirlsrock #mindset #abundance #mentalhealthtips #therapytips #mentalhealthawareness #blacktherapist #blackmentalhealth #kingdombuilder #graymatthewsproject

Consistency is a skill that we all must master if we want to pursue goals.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Most of us believe that we should do something a few times and become a master.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But consistency is a true gift that builds longevity. Take the time to build consistency through the creation of healthy habits that turn into behavior patterns. Your behavior patterns reveal so much about you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And the beauty of consistency is that it can be used to build all kinds of other skills and can be used for personal and professional goals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blackwomenandtherapy #blackwomen #consistencyiskey #consistencyisthekey #consistencyquotes #consistencyoverperfection #consistencypaysoff #consistencyiseverything #consistency #perfection #perfectionism #blackgirlsrock #mindset #abundance #mentalhealthtips #therapytips #mentalhealthawareness #blacktherapist #blackmentalhealth #mentalhealth #kingdombuilder #graymatthewsproject

Have you ever wanted to seek out therapy? But felt unsure because of fear, or judgement, or lack of knowledge? Then check out this post. For Black women, therapy is a place where we can confront the stereotypes of the ‘strong black woman’ and ‘ride or die chicks,’ among others. We need to be take our time with finding a therapist that we feel comfortable and safe with, so that we can lay down the internal loads that we carry daily, and discover who we are without the weight of others and the world. 1. Consider your motives...why do you want to participate in therapy? What outcomes are you expecting? What is your expectations of the therapy process? 2. Are you willing and prepared to do the emotional work that therapy can require? The amount of work that is required is in proportion to the healing that is needed for you and your life. 3. Will you quit when it gets hard? And when you begin to come face-to-face with difficult truths about yourself and your relationships? Therapy is not about blame, it is about promoting wellness and healing. 4. What kind of therapist do you want to work with? Do you require a specialist within a particular area, such as eating disorders or severe depression? You must do your homework on yourself and preferences, as well as on the therapist. 5. Consider the style, personality, training, and specialization of the therapist you are seeking. Mental health professionals fall under various licensing boards, and across various fields within the mental health field. Again, do some research because this is an important journey that you are taking.

Feeling love and appreciation for myself...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Love and appreciation for where I’ve been, what I’ve done, who I was, and mistakes that I’ve made.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Those things have shaped me into who I am today. They’ve given me desires and dreams of who I can become, and who I am becoming daily.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don’t waste time on feelings of regret, shame, and guilt. For those feelings are destructive and keep me stuck. They made me afraid to trust myself, scared of trying new things, and fearful of others. That’s a place that I no longer want to live.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As Black women, we aren’t encouraged to feel love and joy in who we are. For we are constantly compared to others in our families, others in the workplace, and others in our societies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, I want to tell you today, take time to appreciate yourself. For when you do, you’ll find that there’s more to you than you’ve ever known, and more of you that can blossom and bloom when love is spread within.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you @Purposegarb for this awesome shirt... #Proverbs1822⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #selflove #selfappreciation #selfworth #selfesteem #dreams #goals #blackgirlmagic⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blackwomenandtherapy #blackwomen #blackgirlsrock #mindset #abundance #mentalhealthtips #therapytips #mentalhealthawareness #blacktherapist #blackmentalhealth #kingdombuilder #graymatthewsproject

What do you do when there is no closure? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How do you process the emotions and move forward?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This involves a couple of steps:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. You have to allow yourself to grieve the loss.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Allow yourself the time to process and go at your own pace. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4. Try to find at least one thing about the experience that you learnt from.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 5. Recognize that life is built on a series of experiences that prepare you for your next level; nothing is wasted.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 6. Begin the process of forgiveness to allow yourself the opportunity to heal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 7. Allow yourself grace and understand that these steps are repetitive and not necessarily chronological. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 8. Expect that you will process this experience differently at various stages in your life.

Raising emotionally healthy black girls is a difficult task.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want to see Black women who are willing to recognize that their families are filled with generational cycles that need to be broken.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When our parents told us that, “What happens in this house stays in this house,” they robbed us of our choices, they robbed us of the opportunity to process our emotional trauma, and they robbed us to the chance to build healthy coping skills and proper emotional boundaries.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As adult Black women, we now have the choice to educate ourselves and do differently. We have the opportunity to create emotionally healthy Black girls...and eventually healthy Black women.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But only if we make the choice to do things differently...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo credit:@IamKrystalCJ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #trauma #blackwomen #blackgirls #blackgeneration #generationaltrauma ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blackwomenandtherapy #blackwomen #blackgirlsrock #mindset #abundance #mentalhealthtips #therapytips #kingdombuilder #graymatthewsproject

Over the last year, I have been focused on shifting my thoughts and creating boundaries against thoughts that do not serve me, or my future, and that are an insult to my Creator who is wholly abundant. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, I am encouraging you to join me in this shift and focus your thoughts on inviting abundance into your life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Abundance Thinking:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Shed who you thought you were supposed to be for who you were meant to be.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. He gives us glimpses of that person by stirring our desires, laying burdens and passions on our hearts.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. Close the door on other’s expectations, and swing the door open on those new opportunities that are pulling you in a new direction.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4. Discover the difference between being pushed in a direction by shoulds and musts, and being pulled by your desires and opportunities.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @IamKrystalCJ - thanks for the pic!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #abundace #mindset #thoughts #mentalhealth #growth #opportunities #mentalshift #mindsetshift #pushvspull #expectations #othersexpectations #abundancethinking #blackwomenandtherapy #blackwomen #graymatthewsproject

Intimacy allows another into your personal and most private spaces and boundaries. This is allowing another into your mind, heart, and body.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is making space for another to get to know the deepest parts of you. It must be based on trust, intentionality, commitment, respect, honesty, honor, and wholeness. It is not fueled by shame, pain, submission, prejudice, lies, nor guilt.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Intimacy recognizes that your birthright made you a whole person. A whole person who can create space for another to know you as a wholly beautiful and create being that is evolving and becoming. True intimacy creates space for your evolution, growth, and transformation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Intimacy is not only present in sexual relationships. For intimacy is far deeper than sex. Intimacy is present in deep and connected friendships.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sexual relationships should be an extension of intimate friendships because you are sharing your whole self with your sexual partner.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ True intimacy facilities true spirituality, not religion. For true intimacy feeds our bodies, souls, and spirits. For those of us who want to know and experience God, we experience God when we build true intimacy with others; because to love God, is to love others.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you ever experienced true intimacy?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #intimacy #trueintimacy #intimacywithGod #intimacywithJesus #intimacy #trueintimacywithGod #beyondintimacy #intimacytips #trueintimacybeginswithyou⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #graymatthewsproject #blackwomenandtherapy

He has shown me that though I may feel off track at times, He has me exactly where I need to be.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And so are you. The lessons you are learning now is for the next season. So, stop fighting and develop awareness of your situation.

What does self-care mean to you?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The point of self-care is to do things that fulfill, replenish, and fuel you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is to replenish and restore all the energies, emotions, and service that you have given unto others.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How do you replenish yourself? Remember that you cannot give from an empty cup. What’s in your cup is for you. The overflow is for others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When was the last one you refilled your cup?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Checkout the link in the bio for a discussion on the blog about self-care.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #selfcare #replenish #rejuvenate⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blackwomenandtherapy #blackwomen #blackgirlsrock #mindset #abundance #mentalhealthtips #therapytips #kingdombuilder #graymatthewsproject⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sent via @planoly #planoly

Do you possess the skill of self-awareness?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The simple fact is you cannot change what you don’t know about. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If we have no self-awareness, we have no control over ourselves; we have no control over our thoughts, behaviors, habits, relationships. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In essence, we have no control over our lives.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Checkout the link in the bio for a discuss on self-awareness.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #selfawareness #selftransformation ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blackwomenandtherapy #blackwomen #blackgirlsrock #mindset #abundance #mentalhealthtips #therapytips #kingdombuilder #graymatthewsproject

"We are slowly learning that self-care is not selfish." ~ Yetta Young . In this monologue, we talk about the taboos of black women seeking therapy. Anna Maria Horsford opens the piece with a few statistics about black women and therapy. . I think we are finally coming out of the shadows of shame and seeking therapy, when needed and no longer feeling the need to hide it. . #ButterflyConfessions #AnnaMariaHorsford #BlackWomenAndTherapy . www.ButterflyConfessions.com
