Are you an angry black woman?

Are you an angry black woman?

natural LOVE

My ladies we have all heard or even have been called an, “angry black” woman or even a in my case, a crazy black woman. And I going to be 100 with y’all I’m tired of the bullshit!

“Society continues to portray black women as angry when we show emotion and it prevents from being seem as vulnerable”-https://twitter.com/iamtobioredein/status/799558410547134464

Let me start off by saying, people in this world will label you, claim they know everything about you, and try to devalue you and your being. SIS  don’t let them. FUCK THEIR STEREOTYPE of us. 😀

img_6461.pngAddiction?

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear this word?

SN:(tell me below I love comments guys!)

For me when I hear it I think of the most obvious form of an addiction, addiction to drugs like crack, weed, heroine etc. But I want to talk about the most opaque form of addiction.

Having an addiction to people like friends, lovers, and, best friends.

*disclaimer: I am by no means a pro nor expert on relationships, the following are things I have observed and experienced that I will like to share with you all peace and love y’all*

Take for instance in a relationship, many people unknowingly develop a natural but unhealthy( will explain later) dependency on this person or persons. I have watched a family member of mine have a three-year and counting relationship with her boyfriend, there is nothing these two haven’t…
