The stereotype of the “strong black women” has been damaging to black women in more ways than I can count. It perpetuates this idea that black women are supposed to be able to handle anything and do it in humble silence. It stunts the range of emotion we are allowed to express for fear of not living up to the standard, of being deemed weak

please don’t call me strong and that i’ll get through it when i’m venting to you for this reason, anything but that will do

Exactly. There’s strength in vulnerability. #blackwomen #wholeness
