Don’t become complacent in life, always strive to be a better version of yourself.
Article: “Living With BPD As A Black Man” _ “Something as simple as someone not responding on time to our texts can send us on a rollercoaster of paranoia where we start asking ourselves whether we did something to you or not, "did I say something wrong/offensive in that text?". The fear of abandonment is very real, even not being included in plans can set us into a spiral where we relive all the 'episodes' we've had around you and think we're being ostracised (which is what often happens as people get tired of 'dealing' with us).” _ “It's difficult being black and trying to explain what is going on with you when your community does not even try to understand mental health let alone even do a little research about what could be affecting a close one after they disclose to them. Well some!” _ Join our forum at Blackmarbles.org
Article: “Living With BPD As A Black Man” _ “Sooooo I have been contemplating writing this post for some time now but I have always stopped myself because of my fear of abandonment, you'll come to learn as you read that this is a common 'symptom/sign' of BPD. This fear honestly stems from all of the internalised words I have heard before when I have wanted to be vocal about what is going on with me? Hearing things such as "you're using your mental illness as means of justifying being sh!ty towards others" can definitely cause one to feel some type of way especially disclosing to others. However it's a new year, people are starting to have the conversations that need to be had around the topic of mental health.” _ Join our forum at Blackmarbles.org

Holiday is over, who is truly excited?🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣.... Have you noticed, holidays come with loads of laziness? You just want to be in all day, catch up with friends, come up with “I want to spend this time with my family”😁😁😁.... All those are good, very good, but don’t dwell too long in that land😁. ——— Dust your books, phones, laptops and get to work! Show the world the stuff you are made of, let them feel you. ——- Let me not lie, I almost did not want to post anything during the holidays😏😁, but a purplewoman is resilient 😘. Even Instagram felt the holidays, but some people still made plenty sales. ———- Welcome back dear PurpleWomen❤️❤️❤️❤️ ——- T.T.O Your identity doctor 👩‍⚕️

Posted @withrepost@browngirlselfcare Let’s be real, there is only so much “Everything is going GREAT” you can keep telling yourself when your life is in shambles or you dealt with some major shit that you haven’t resolved. Healing isn’t going to happen if your sole means of therapy is telling yourself and others that things are just fine. Positive thinking is amazing however we gotta start uprooting old hurts and traumas, properly healing then and then boost ourselves further with positive thinking. You wouldn’t put a clean diaper on top of an old one, right? No. Your take of the spikes one, refresh/cleanse your little one and THEN put on a nice new diaper. If you don’t you’ll have an unhealthy, irritating rash/sore situation going on that will only get worse. Doesn’t matter if the top layer is pretty and clean. You gotta first address the issue and take care of it. I was listening to a show today that talked about positivity and affirmations and they addressed this. It really resonated with me so I wanted to share it with you. #blackwomenmatter #affirmations #healing #authenticself #mindsetmatters #blackbloggers #liveyourbestlifenow #wellness #browngirlselfcare #selflove #boundaries #qotd #selfcare #therapy

The key to personal growth is being self aware. Acknowledging the areas you suffer in, and making a conscious decision to do better. What good is knowing what your weaknesses are, if you're not trying to turn them into strengths?! Drop a "❤" if you want in. #TheConfidenceCoach

Happy Earth Day y'all! Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez is always fighting for all of our rights, health and well-being...and health of the environment. We need more people in the government speaking on behalf of all people instead of speaking to the pockets of a few.

Actually, it's 6 books 😁 . . . 1st book: by Bell Hooks. This book helped me understand the trauma I was experiencing and solutions to heal the internal turmoil. . . . 2. By Nanice Ellis. This book talks about the effects of the Great Depression on humanity, but it helped me to understand generational trauma, and how to explain to myself why slavery is still relevant today, and more healing strategies to bring myself back to wholeness. Highly relatable. . . . 3. By Joseph R. Gibson. A rebuttal to 'When God Was a Woman', it gave me a whole new perspective on my worth and value as a black woman. . . . 4. By Charles Fillmore. Helped me understand the Bible so I could draw much needed wisdom from it. . .. . 5. By Crystal Andrus Morissette. Not totally specific to black women, but I learned how to heal emotional triggers and my shadow self, which ushered in self-love.
#RepostPlus @alora_tonielle - - - - - - Last night my crew @stinglikeabsc had it's 1st Annual Easter Party giveaway for the community I grew up in Harlem and it was a success over 500 eggs hunt, over 300 baskets given out food, games and music. I have to give a big shout out to my friend @dylandili you came out last night and showed the hood love. You didn't have to come you didn't have to talk and take your time with each person taking pictures even to the very end helping us clean up our neighborhood park. Thank you so much for putting so many smiles on peoples faces and inspiring the kids and adults. You help assist me with Hosting last night and you always put a smile on my face to many more strong years of friendship I love you till eternity. #alora #aloratonielle #harlem #harlemgirlwithbigdreams #dylandili #cirocboyz #badboyent #stinglikeab #blackwomenmatter #ladiesofhiphop #community #neighborhood #itstartswithourcommunity #makethestreetssafeagain #leadersoftomorrow #StingLikeABEasterParty #aloratoniellechronicles #aloratonielleproject

Reposted from @forusnaturals - Happy 93rd birthday Brother Malcolm X! I saw so many great quotes of his today but I chose this quote because it's perfect for the "brothas" out here proclaiming how much they hate women of their own race. How can you hate your OWN roots and not acknowledge that you have a freaking issue? You're literally born of what you denounce. It's a societal sickness. #getwell #malcolmx #malcolmxday #malcolmxquotes #getalife #happybirthday #checkyourself #knowthyself #blacklove #blackwomenmatter #roots #learntoloveyourself #blackgirlsmatter #blackcommunity #respectyourmother #respectyourelders #respectyourself #getyourmindright #blackleaders #malcolmshabazz #blackwomenrock #strongblackman #blackmancan #loveyourpeople #allblacklivesmatter #getyouaqueen - #regrann
Black Women Represent! . It is so beautiful (and about time!) to see more womxn and people of color teaching, participating in and influencing the wellness space. . With systemic racism in all areas especially the medical and health industries, heart disease as the leading cause of death of black women, and black mothers being 3 to 4 times more likely than white women to have a pregnancy-related death, we - #woc - must be seen, heard and represented as advocates and missionaries of self-care, self-love, natural healing and the reclaiming of ancient healing technology that come from our bloodlines. . It is an honor to teach alongside the stellar women featured here and this summer touring with @Wanderlust. . Come see us, move with us, listen and remember... Link to Wanderlust in bio including code giving you 10% off your festival tickets. . So much love and respect to: . @glowmaven . @tracee_stanley . @koyawebb . @mynameisjessamyn . @saraclarkyoga . @nicoleacardoza . #poc #woc #wellness #blackwomendoyoga #blackwomenmatter #adidaswomen #adidas #wanderlust #hoopyogini #lifeisawesome #blackgirlinom

So while doing my devotions today I was reading the story about Naomi & Ruth + Naomi was Ruth’s mother in law + they both became widowed and Ruth stuck by Naomi when times got hard + Ruth hustled hard to take care of herself and her MIL + she met her man while she worked in the fields + now you know that’s back breaking work but she did it anyway + she told her MIL who she met + her MIL told her who he was + her MIL then told her to fix herself up and smell good (NOCAP) + the rest is history + the lessons in this story are simple + waiting for your Boaz doesn’t mean you literally sit on life’s sideline + you have to work while you wait + work on your job, degree, health, appearance, finances, relationships with GD and family + help others while you wait + be accessible and approachable because he can’t see you if you hide and he won’t want you if you’re bitter + most importantly look the part + Ruth wasn’t thirsty and wasn’t a Thot + he saw her at her worst when she was working and then saw her again at her best + that means your best not social media’s best + find your most flattering outfit, hold your head up, smile and get noticed sis👸🏽#dailydevotions #datingadvice #mysisterskeeper #naomiandruth #godwhereismyboaz
