Navigating mental health as a Black woman is HARD. I use to feel like I couldn’t be honest about what I was feeling. There’s a meme I’ve seen that I think perfect sums up the lack of support Black women get for mental health – it’s cartoon of a Black woman drowning and in the next frame someone is shouting telling her she’s doing wonderful. As she’s continuing to drown, rather than someone helping to pull her up, they give her a high five instead and she drowns and sinks in the water. I know what it’s like to feel like you’re dying right in front of an audience.
Have you ever held onto something so tight, it’s as if it causes you more pain to keep it than it does to let it go?
