TIME OUT!! It’s Time to Set the Record Straight!

Friends Since Second Grade

Friends Since Second Grade

The media wants us to believe “black women don’t get along”. This is an outright LIE! The current TV shows portray black women as back-stabbing, side-eyeing, in your face witches who have no loyalty or respect for each other.
Unfortunately, these shows are making the media rich and this negative behavior has become this generation’s example for what can be expected when a group of black women become friends.

How do we stop the promotion of this myth? Stop watching this trash! These shows do not represent the real world!

I’ll be the first to say there are black women who do not get along all the time. Every woman at one time or another has been thrown her fair share of insults, low blows and shady behavior by other black women but the key is learning how to effectively deal with these situations in a dignified manner.

The lesson to be learned is no one should put up with disrespect, it is important we as black women first learn to value our friendships and appreciate the love good friendships provide.

If we acknowledge and appreciate the support, encouragement and love we receive from our friendships then we can open our hearts to humility and effectively deal with the situation in which we feel wronged.

Remember, real friends know real friendships are built on agreeing to disagree. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and space. These qualities are the foundations for strong and lasting friendships among black women.
