I’m Tired of Being the Strong Black Woman

Black women have this stigma of being strong, independent, and not needing anyone. I had this mind frame for a long time until I realized it’s ok for someone to love me, support me, and cherish me.

Sometimes I’m not strong all the time and I need someone to lean on but being a black woman I’m viewed as resilient when at times I want to be vulnerable. I’m tired of always having to be strong why can I not show my feelings.

I’m done with this stigma, yes I’m strong but I don’t always want to be.

I leave you with love, peace, happiness, and prosperity.
