Affirmations of the Week: Gentleness as We Persevere.

For many of us, it is easy to get swept up in the creation of to do lists, reaching for deadlines, squeezing into tight schedules and pursuing big goals. And, indeed, it's valuable to have the conviction to dream grand visions for our life and overcome the great obstacles before us. But what if in the midst of that we found more ways to affirm how far we've come? What if we offered ourselves the gift of encouragement and gentleness as we kept moving along the way? This week's affirmations explore these questions. 

If you have more to add, let us know in the comments or here.



A word from dear black women to you.

Let's keep it real and make it plain:

Some of us shouldn't be upright based on what we've been through and/or what we're going through. But look at us, WE STILL HERE!!!

Dear Black Women celebrates ALL of us!!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ And wishes for us the support, safe space, affirmation, release and love that we need!

Keep. Going.

“You let the toxicity of your environment steal your joy sweetheart. You let people who didn't value your joy and positivity take it way from you. You lost yourself. But now it is time to get you back."

You are worthy of the journey of getting yourself back and being gentle to yourself along the way.

Here are some self-care tips that may help you.




A word from dear black women to you.

There is honor in asking for help, and you are honorable. There is integrity in asking for help and you have integrity. There is honesty in asking for help and you are honest. There is courage in asking for help and you are courageous.

A loving reminder that we can remix toxic narratives around asking for help. You deserve the help you need, dear Black women. You do. You are better than being someone's superwoman. You're your own #BlackGirlMagic.

You are worthy of the help you need. Remember that. Be reminded.

“You are not lacking. You are not less than. You are a human who has gone through some stuff. You are healing and working your way through it. Keep going."

Yes, keep going. We are rooting for you.
