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

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 by a man, but verbally I have, and I've found it can…See More

OP-ED: Do Shows like "Love And Hip Hop" Paint A Bad Mental Picture Into The Minds Of Black America?

I won't even sit here and lie to you. I used to watch reality tv shows like "Love And Hip Hop" faithfully. That's until I realized this is not a good reality for my mental stimulation. Let me explain what I mean. Every week I tuned into LHH I saw every negative black stereotype imaginable. Loud and ignorant black women ready to fight on sight, sneaky black men constantly cheating on his beautiful black woman, black men with two or more baby mama's who can't get along, black women with tons of…See More

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

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

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…
