Should Cardi B Take Offset Back?

Hey Queens!

As you are probably well-aware, Cardi B and Offset have been heating social media up for the past few days. The biggest question is if they will reconcile, and this whole situation has been grinding my gears, so I decided to blog about it.

First, I would like to say that at the end of the day, Cardi B is entitled to make the best choice for HER and Kulture, and it’s really none of my business what she decides; however, I want to talk about how this situation has amplified how dysfunctional society and their views on relationships are.

My Issues with Social Media

My Dearest Queens!

How was your Thanksgiving? I hope it was filled with family, love, and great food. Today I’m going to be talking about what bothers me about social media.

For months I couldn’t pinpoint why I was having such a love/hate relationship with social media (specifically Instagram). Since about the end of August I found myself posting less and not even having the desire to. Of course I would still scroll occasionally to get the latest tea from The Shaderoom. I mean who’s not guilty of that? LOL. But something was different. Why didn’t I want to post and live my life off of social media?

My Experience with Therapy

Hello Queens!

I hope the past few weeks have been a blessing to you. I try to post once a week, but of course something always gets in the way. I am a mom of a new pup (blog post coming soon), so I’ve been busy training him and loving on him.

Today’s topic is therapy/counseling. I just finished my third session with my therapist, and I can say that I have made progress so far. I feel a lot better and I believe it is a great tool even if you aren’t struggling with things like depression and anxiety. My first session was all about intake, so she got to know me and what I was struggling with. My last two sessions have been us identifying what I want to work on as well as her asking me what has been going on in my life and giving me suggestions on how to deal with certain issues.

A Self-Care Guide for Selfless Women

Hey Queens!

This week I am back with a topic that is near and dear to my heart because I do not practice enough of self-care. I literally will burn myself out trying to make other people happy. It’s the selfless quality in me, but it is becoming quite paralyzing. My therapist said that I give too much of myself to others, and have nothing left for me in return. She also said that having a big heart and serving others isn’t a bad thing, but it can’t be the ONLY thing I do. She’s completely right. I’m always on the go and I honestly think about myself last in almost every scenario. I don’t know how I got this way, but it’s becoming exhausting, and definitely lending to my depression.
