Why Are Black Women Associated With Being Single Mothers?

So, this post was a raw one. I basically speak from the heart, and kind of with no boundaries. Sorry not sorry if my raw emotions offend you. I'm only saying what's on my mind, because I know I'm not alone. You think it, but you don't want to say it. That's ok, because I say it for the both of us 😊 You wouldn't believe I spent over 20 minutes looking for a photo of a pregnant Black woman on Google. You would think my eyes would start scanning the images that pop up in the results, but nope. What does my extra woke self notice?

What the hell is that Google? I search "Black Maternity" and the top 3 results?
  1. Black Woman
  2. Single Mom
  3. African American
Why is this? How come this is the narrative? Boo on your stereotypes. So, I compiled a list of beautiful Black families welcoming new life. I don't own copyright to any of these images, just posted from a Google search.

I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
