Black Women are Tired of Struggling
Always being everything to everyone is exhausting. Yet you feel that you must. You take on the worries and problems of those around you because you can handle it better than they can. This responsibility to be all things to everyone limits your ability to disclose her own struggles. You hold yourself in because you don’t want to be a burden, perceived as weak, or judged.
Because you neglect yourself you may feel:
- Irritability or outbursts triggered by overwhelm
- Negative beliefs or self-doubt
- Expectations of self that seem impossible to accomplish
- Avoidance of people of people or social events
- A strong desire to get away or escape
As a Black woman, you face both positive and negative stereotypes that result in expectations from others. Appearing to have it all together isn’t enough anymore, let’s make some changes.
Through Black Female Therapy, you can clarify which expectations you choose to live up to and which you chose to ignore.
