Show Notes

Episode 17: There comes a time in our lives ladies, when we need to set boundaries. Whether it is at home, work or with our friends boundaries help to keep us safe and they protect our sanity! Esther Boykin, LMFT and CEO of Group Therapy Associates returns from Season 1 - Episode #2 when she and host Mimi Jacks talked about the Myth of the Strong Black Woman. Now join us as we talk about why setting boundaries is so important for self care and what some of the perceptions are of Black women in particular when we attempt to put those boundaries in place. Some people may label us as selfish, not a team player or aggressive when we have the audacity to speak up for ourselves. Be sure to listen then share with others! Please feel free to leave comments or a message as well...who knows your comments may be featured on a future episode!
