J Cole's Music Helps Me in My Recovery From Depression

Last week, when I found out J Cole was dropping a new album, a certain thought went through my mind. " How different will I feel listening to this album?", If you didn't know, earlier this year I wrote an article addressed as a letter to J Cole (http://www.afropunk.com/m/blogpost?id=2059274%3ABlogPost%3A1391634). The previous article expressed how 2014 forest hills drive, helped me through some of my toughest, and…See More

"A letter to the EX who told me "You Have Nothing To Live For, Kill Yourself" (tw: verbal/emotional abuse)

Posted on February 15, 2017 at 5:00pm 1 Comment

For the sake of confidentially I guess I'll call you "George"



Dear "George",



I took the fire you burned me with and arisen from the ashes like a Phoenix.



On and off for two years, you verbally abused me. It was never excessive, so that's probably why I was naive, and I just let it go on (that and I lacked self-love). I use to make excuses for how you treated me. When someone throws a fist at you, it hurts. I've never been physically beaten…

Grieving and healing are a long process: I'm ready to embrace all that makes me (tw: abuse, suicide)

Posted on February 2, 2017 at 2:12pm 0 Comments

As I sit staring blankly at the screen, I find myself reflecting over the last few months that have evolved into the turbulent last few years and even further back, into an introspective study of every, last crystallized shard of childhood innocence shattered—scattered—and embedded within adolescent wounds left to fester long into adulthood scars that cannot be healed by simply kissing them better.



I lament over growing up in a Black Community that has…

Eating Disorders Are Not #WhiteGirlProblems

Posted on January 23, 2017 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

I was sitting on the couch in a small office across from two women, two therapists, on the second floor of LSU’s Health Services building. It was the first time anyone had associated that word, that disorder, with me. It was also the first time I’d heard anyone acknowledge that eating disorders are not an exclusively white issue.



My disordered eating started in middle school. It wasn’t blossoming figure or the sudden desire for male attention that triggered it,…

OP-ED: Fight back! Let’s make the next 4 years about radical self-love

Posted on January 20, 2017 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

Hey folks, you might be feeling a little defeated and overwhelmed right now by the first few days of the Trump administration, which has already seen terrifying proposed budget cuts and cabinet appointee hearings. And it’s okay to be sad and to not want to do shit. It’s okay to check out of politics and to stop checking the news (for a little bit, anyway) to focus on yourself and your mental health. In fact, I’d argue that it’s imperative.



Resisting the Trump…
