4. The "Strong Black Woman" does not exist. As far as I am concerned, being strong for the sake of being strong is for the birds. No black woman is made of brick and no black woman will always have it all together.
For several years now, I have been trapped by the SuperWoman Syndrome. Like many other women, I thought I had to be all, do all, or I would be nothing. Needed something done? Feel free to pile it right on my plate. Sleep? Ha! It's overrated anyway.
