This is Super Self-Care Commentary with Love and Life Coach Deya Direct, where she shares perspective and quick tips about hot button issues.
This is ironically #minoritymentalhealthawarenessmonth, and unfortunately, singer and reality Star Tamar Braxton allegedly attempted suicide this past Thursday. Tamar who's 43, was found unresponsive in her room at the Ritz-Carlton in downtown Los Angeles.
Deya discusses how strong Black women struggle too. Research shows that African Americans are highly likely to struggle with emotional distress but least likely to seek help.
Black women in particular are expected to possess unlimited strength and resilience. This expectation puts immense pressure on her to uphold the "Strong Black Woman" title pretending we're superhuman and it's killing us.
Here are 4 Caring Calls-to-Action that you can do now:
Hey strong woman! Have you ever been accused of shrinking your man?
