Black Love Edition: Celebrating and Promoting Black Love, Black Families and Children by teaching the Power of Self-Love!
Never chase after so-called “true love”! If the person truly wants to be with you, they will make an equal effort to be there. So many times in black families we see the opposite of this–I know I did growing up as a young black woman. Everyone was looking for love–even if it killed their mind, body and soul. They just wanted some form of love.
Sadly in “single-mom” black families the majority of us never see healthy relationships and/or family units. And often times we follow down the same “toxic’ path that we were expose to. Thinking that love hurts, comes with pain, and is filled with DRAMA!
It’s time to break this cycle of dysfunction and start teaching our children the importance of loving themselves first. And by giving them examples of positive and healthy black relationships. They shouldn’t have to “only” look up to celebrity black couples like Beyonce’ & Jay Z for inspiration. This source of inspiration should be more personal and up close–in their families and communities!
