The Black Girl Burnout podcast is dedicated to helping black women learn how to opt out of the mentality of struggle while also learning how to opt into a life of joy, abundance, and good health, which is their birthright. Burnout can manifest in a variety of ways, including feelings of exhaustion, cynicism, and a lack of accomplishment. It is totally ok if you are experiencing more than one of the feelings at the same time. Being able to fully align with your truth is a significant sign of strength.
Self-betrayal has become the norm, particularly for women, and it is an expectation of black women. The black woman, the ideal black woman is the woman who gives it all for others and doesn’t complain, and doesn’t ask for anything in return. The bad black woman is the one who speaks up because, oh, that black woman’s aggressive and angry. We have normalized self-betrayal, and we have vilified those who take a stand against it. However, we no longer have to adhere to this mentality. Let today be the day that you say NO MORE to all versions of the struggle.
