Ep. 66: Parents Just Don't Understand

EThere is a battle brewing across the millennial age spectrum that rarely, if ever, gets talked about. As we make our best attempts to figure out adulting, many of us also find ourselves defending our decisions to our parents. It can be difficult for us to understand why they feel so justified in speaking up, so today I’m giving your 3 possible reasons why your parents just don’t understand you and the moves you’re making. We’ll Discuss: How generational differences influence your parents’ ability to understand The most fundamental desire of every parent How you can gain empathy for your parents, even as you establish boundaries with them Announcements Check out Heart 2 Heart w/ Latrice Sampson Richards at https://www.blackmarriedfly.com/heart2heart Most Recent Post: “How to Keep Your Parents Out of Your Relationships” This episode is brought to you by: Audible This month I’m listening to The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead.

Ep. 65: Finding Your Purpose (LIVE)

ELast week I decided to do a random episode on FB Live and record it. After attending a conference Saturday, I was so inspired and wanted to share that inspiration with you. One of the top questions millennials (young and old) are asking ourselves is “What is my purpose?” We know that we are not where we used to be, but also that we are not where we want to be either. It’s hard feeling like your stuck in a place that doesn’t give you any fulfillment. Today we’re talking about what it really takes to find your purpose and create the kind of life you deserve. We’ll Discuss: The role of authenticity in purpose fulfillment Why you are struggling to find your purpose How your facade is preventing you from building a support network Announcements Check out Heart 2 Heart w/ Latrice Sampson Richards at https://www.blackmarriedfly.com/heart2heart Most Recent Post: “How to Find a Real One” This episode is brought to you by: Audible This month I’m listening to The Underground Railroad ...

Christians believe that you are supposed to give something up as a replication of the sacrifice Jesus made for the 40 days he spent in the desert.

Ep. 62: Standing Naked In The Mirror

EEvery week I get naked for ya’ll. I strip away my fears and allow myself to be vulnerable because I know that you need me to. I truly believe in the power of sharing our stories with each other, especially the stories that make us feel uncomfortable. So, yes, I do this for you. But in reality, I do it for me more than anything. Getting naked, is a surefire way to see yourself in your purest, most raw form- literally and figuratively. For many, the idea of nakedness evokes a fear that they are not sure they can handle. Today, we are talking about how to confront that fear, get comfortable with being naked, and strengthen your relationship with yourself and others. We’ll discuss: How the fear of being naked affects our relationships The benefit of shedding your clothes The steps involved in truly getting naked This episode is brought to you by: Audible My March book selection is “The Underground Railroad” by Colson Whitehead.

Ep. 61: Black Love w/ Bro Shack

#Blacklove can be a complicated, and joyful topic. I’m excited to see it moving into the mainstream cultural conversation through shows like “Black Love” on Oprah’s OWN network. Still, I think the conversation needs to be expanded to include not only heterosexual romantic relationships, but also the ways that we love ourselves and each other on a daily basis. Today, Im talking with Bro Shack, one half of True Love Movement, to discuss what it means to love and be loved as a Black person. We do a deep-dive into the cultural history of blackness and the ways slavery has impacted our understanding of what it means to love others, but maybe more importantly, what it means to love ourselves. Bro Shack brings a deep love for the Black community to the show, and his takes on the multi-generational blocks to self-love have a lot to offer the current cultural conversation around blackness. We’ll discuss: Why it’s critical to understand the cultural legacy of slavery and the way it mani...

Ep. 60: All Things Counseling

EDid you know that counselors complete at least three thousand hours of direct and indirect experience before they’re fully licensed? It’s a complicated journey, but I’ve always been fascinated by why and how people do the things they do, so it’s totally worth it. Pretty much everywhere I go someone wants to talk about my work. Once they find out I’m a counselor they end up telling me all about their lives and their personal struggles. Some may find this difficult to deal with, but it’s part of the job; and I LOVE IT!! I also get approached by those who are interested in beginning a career in the helping professions themselves. The same questions come up over and over, so today, I’m going to answer all of those questions once and for all. If you are looking at a career in the counseling industry, thinking about seeing a therapist and need to know what to look for, or just want to make sure I know what I’m talking about, this episode is for you! We’ll discuss: My personal jou...

Ep. 59: The Psychology of Hate

It is inevitable that you will experience hatred when you don’t fit into the cultural norm. Being Black in America is a risk. Being Black and gay is a whole new level of risk. In the wake of the attack on actor Jussie Smollet, I’ve been thinking a lot about hatred; specifically, about the hatred expressed towards marginalized groups. This episode is all about the mental and emotional processes that create and feed that hatred. The psychology of hatred involves a complicated cocktail of fear, shame, and disgust, but what is it about human beings that makes us hate so powerfully and so violently? In today’s episode, we look at: Why humans hate How to free yourself from the hatred of/for others How to free yourself from the internalization of that hatred We’ll dive into the groundings of hatred in self-preservation, survival, and pack-mindedness, as well as how our own fears that provoke us into hating others. We’ll talk about our deep-seated fear of what’s different, but also th...
