Have you been "burned" by family, do you expect your family to ride or die for you, do you think people actually know when they need further healing, is healing truly attainable in the black and brown communities? The ladies answer these questions and more on this episode of BWH.
The ladies admit, at some point, they've been burned by family and family will be the first to throw fire at you. Seleta states that she finds closure by telling the other person how she feels and how she was hurt and then moves forward unapologetically. Sheena says that over the years she has stopped expecting anything from family, whether that's supporting her creative projects or just calling to check on her. By now you already know that Ashley's relationships are on a case-by-case basis, lol.
Cheyenne says that she felt like the "black sheep" of her family growing up because she was raised by her grandparents in her earlier life and her experience with her mother was entirely different from that of her siblings. Monique reminds us that the revolution of black and brown people will not be televised, because healing starts within and we cannot heal our families or this nation until we stand in the mirror and seek it in our communities, first.
Passive-aggressive behaviors seem to be a common theme in this episode and the ladies all agree that getting things out in the air, even if it means relationships being severed. Unhealed trauma is widespread in the black and brown communities; is healing generational curses truly attainable?
