In honor of Shanquella - "Free Toxic Friendship Q&A on 4/14/23"

Like many people, I am shocked and absolutely heartbroken about the decision of US federal prosecutors to not press charges towards the suspects in the case of Shanquella Robinson (and also the prolonged investigation timeline to take any action).Her life was important and to learn that those she considered "friends" were not available to protect her makes me so sick, and I mourn for her.This is why it is sooo important that we are intentional with whom we love and have access to us.In honor of her memory, I want to do a free coaching live Q&A for anyone dealing with toxic or problematic friendship issues tomorrow night, Friday, April 14th at 6:30pm CST.I will briefly teach on what a toxic friendship is, and for the rest of the time, I will take questions about current problems you are having with a friend and suggest ways to move forward, red flags to look out for, and/or validate the actions you're already taking.As with all of my live Zoom coaching calls, if your question is selected, you will need to feel comfortable with both1) having either your audio or video on so that you can talk with me to share your question and2) sharing the full details of what is happening so I can fully understand what is happening and support you on suggested next steps and boundaries.Sharing is not mandatory to attend, and you do not have to be on video or audio if you are not sharing.I will answer as many questions as I can within 90 minutes (or less if there are not many questions).As this is free, there will not be a replay, so you will need to join us live and bring your notebook to take notes.Click here to register: https://shenatubbs.thrivecart.com/toxic-friendship-live-qa/A confirmation email will be sent with a form to submit questions. Submitted questions will take precedence for selection.I look forward to connecting with all of you who can attend tomorrow evening!Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

If you’ve missed red flags in a relationship, it’s completely and totally okay. There is no shame in having missed the signs and suddenly realizing that they are there. Which is why I’m sharing what to keep in mind when you miss red flags. Lately, I’ve seen a lot of chatter about women starting to heal and then suddenly seeing the signs of a bad relationship that they’d previously missed. For so many women this noticing leads to feelings of shame and guilt that they didn’t recognize the signs sooner. Stop right there. Instead of heading down the shame spiral, take a moment and be kind to yourself. So you didn’t recognize those signs right off. You do now and that’s what’s important. Be kind, compassionate, and loving to yourself so that you can finally break the cycle. I also want you to know that there is nothing wrong with you. You are not what is broken. Even if you’ve chosen the same type of relationship over and over again, it’s not your fault that you’re being mistreated. Lastly, no matter how long you’ve been in the relationship or where you’re at in life, you have the right to choose how to respond. It doesn’t matter if you’re 10 minutes, 10 days, or 10 years into it, you can change your future by making a new choice. You’re on the path to healing and growth because you see the red flags. What choice will you make now that you know? In this episode: [00:35] Welcome back loved ones![02:22] Have you ever felt regret or shame for missing red flags in relationships? [03:22] When you do notice those red flags, be kind, compassionate, and loving to yourself. [04:26] Do you know what being kind to yourself means? [07:28] I want you to do something different than you've ever done before. [09:36] There is nothing wrong with you.[13:06] Don’t mistake self-accountability and taking ownership with self-deprecation.[13:38] No matter where you are or how long things have been happening, you get to choose how to respond. [15:27] As soon as you decide that you’re ready to get out, that’s all you need.Links & Resources: Ready to heal your Love Addiction & Love Avoidance?

#111: 3 Ways to Know You’ve Grown and are Healthier

It’s time to give yourself a pat on the back. One of the things we as women, but especially Black women, don’t do often enough is recognize when we’ve made progress. This is why I’m sharing three ways to know that you’ve grown and are healthier. The reason I decided it was time for this type of episode was because of a conversation I had with one of my coaching students. We were talking about some things going on in her life and she kept prefacing her comments with, “I’m love avoidant…” or “I’m trying to be less love avoidant…” As she was talking I had to stop her and point out that she isn’t love avoidant anymore. She’d made huge progress and was actually approaching various situations in completely new ways and had really stepped away from being love avoidant. The problem was, she couldn’t see it. She didn’t recognize her growth for what it was and continued to see herself as the person she was when she first started her work. Which is why you need to do the work, but then recognize it when you’ve grown. If you’ve started pausing before you react, been more open to alternative viewpoints, and have started feeling your emotions, then you’ve grown. Listen in to hear more and then take a moment to celebrate your growth and give yourself a pat on the back. Even if you’ve only fully stepped into one of these areas, you are on the path to healing and you need to celebrate your milestones. I’m giving you that permission right now! In this episode: [00:51] It’s so important to give yourself credit and recognize that you’ve grown. Learn why![01:27] Why I’m sharing this topic. [04:54] Learn three signs that you have grown and get ready to celebrate them.[06:06] Do you pause before you react? Then you’ve grown![08:41] Have you been more open to seeing alternative viewpoints in a conversation? [11:39] Asking questions and being curious is very helpful in relationships. [13:19] You have a choice when you ask the phrase, “Is that true?” in a conversation. [16:07] Another alternative is acknowledging when you go into fantasy mode while dating. [19:41] Choose the meaning you attach to your emotions and feelings. [20:16] The third sign you’ve grown is that you’re able to feel your emotions and validate them.[22:01] One bonus sign is that you share your emotions with people who are safe. [25:34] Pat yourself on the back and celebrate your growth. Links & Resources: Ready to heal your Love Addiction & Love Avoidance?

#110: 4 Ways to Not be Codependent as a Healer

I’m sharing these tips for anyone who is a professional healer. Those of you who are therapists, coaches, crystal workers, healers of all sorts, listen in. But, if you are the sage of your family, perhaps a priest or pastor, or maybe a teacher who hears the burdens of your students, then this is for you as well. As healers, we need to be sure to avoid codependency. What does that mean exactly? As a whole, it means not making your client or family member or student’s journey about you. You cannot superimpose your issues onto their healing. The first way to avoid codependency is by not arguing with people who aren’t ready for transformation. You cannot push people toward healing. They will walk the path toward healing in their own time and you badgering them into it will not make them go any faster. When people share their feelings with you, stop, take a moment, and then ask them what they need from you. Rather than listening and then immediately trying to fix the problem, see what they’re looking to gain by confiding in you first. Also don’t personalize the other person’s progress. Their wins and losses are not reflective of your involvement in their life. It’s their healing journey, not yours so their progress has nothing to do with you. Listen in to hear all four ways plus a little bonus. We all have our own issues to deal with which is why healers also need to have their own healer to go to. Just make sure that you don’t use your relationship with your clients to work on your own baggage. In this episode: [00:34] Being a healer is a privilege in someone’s life no matter if it’s in a personal or professional capacity. [02:27] If you are a healer, it’s important that you don’t expect more from the relationship than it is. [05:38] You do not argue with people who are not ready for transformation. [07:29] This looks like you, making their journey about you. Learn more. [09:56] When people are sharing their feelings with you, you need to pause and ask them what they need from you. [12:30] Don’t personalize your client’s progress. [15:20] Our emotions are so layered and also so simple. [17:52] Stop over-giving, which is not the same as over-delivering. [20:12] If you truly believe in this person, then step out of the way. [22:59] I personally have struggled with over-giving as a coach even though I perfected it as a therapist. [27:01] No matter how hard someone pushes you, you’ll complete things in your own time and space. The same is true with your clients. [30:54] Are you talking with your therapist or coach about your own personal triggers? [32:37] We all have places where we need to learn and grow. [33:05] Why you need to stay focused on your own life. [36:14] As a healer you cannot be possessive or jealous. You don’t need to be someone’s everything. [38:17] Learn how to just say no. Space is okay.[41:26] If you’re a healer, more is not always better. [43:53] How I’m modeling this. Links & Resources:  The Four Agreements by Don Miguel RuizReady to heal your Love Addiction & Love Avoidance?

#109: Being Healed and Loved Woman at All Times

It’s that time again. It’s time for a refresher on what it means to be a healed and loved woman as developed in our three part framework. Listen in to hear the framework again and what you need to do to move from love addiction, avoidance, or anorexia to being a healed and loved woman. I’m starting it all off with love addiction. So many women are stuck in a cycle of love addiction and aren’t sure how to get out of it. Oftentimes we think of sex addiction as something separate but it’s really another facet of being addicted to love. It’s just manifested in the physical. When you’re love avoidant you’re perfectly happy to just relax and keep yourself away from love. Many times wives and mothers hide love avoidance through the actions of taking care of others, but you still need love. Love anorexia is a short-lived stage, but it’s one that is prolonged when you’re not balanced. Love anorexia or love deprivation results in women living in a fantasy world. Usually this disorder is triggered by a bad relationship and then swearing off love, but when you live a balanced life you no longer need dramatic swings. Intimacy disorders are complex, but with the right guidance you can leave them behind and live a balanced and fulfilled life. Listen in to hear more. Which of these do you identify with? In this episode: [00:34] Welcome back! Get ready to refresh your knowledge on the Healed & Loved Woman framework. [03:25] Learn more about the three intimacy disorders that I discuss on this podcast. [06:37] The signs of being a love addict. [08:32] Ways sex is used to create a deeper connection but it doesn’t necessarily work. [11:32] Signs that you may struggle with love avoidance. [14:45] Personal attributes you may have when you’re love avoidant. [17:35] Love avoidant women want nothing more than to just relax. [18:14] Do you have love anorexia? [21:56] Love deprived ladies will often build lives built on fantasies. [23:36] How did the term “love anorexia” come about? [26:57] Join our From Avoidant to Available program.[28:33] The swings that love avoidant and love anorexic women will see in their lives. [30:57] A ring does nothing for your internal beliefs. Neither does losing weight or other measures.[31:57] What it looks like when you become a healed and loved woman.[33:15] Learn about balance in your relationships. [35:48] You can like someone without having to be with them. [37:04] What boundaries really should mean and how they should be presented. [38:11] The benefits of being love available.[41:59] The traits of a love available woman. [44:29] What it looks like when you’re living in your love worthiness. [48:01] When you are active in your love worthiness you show up for opportunities to find love.Ready to heal your Love Addiction & Love Avoidance?

#107: Things I Learned During my Hiatus (Adult ADHD, Connecting, Feminine Energy, & More)

I’m back! It’s been a little over a month since I dropped a podcast episode and I've taken the time to do some deep soul searching. Listen in to hear all the things I’ve learned about myself both professionally and personally and what that means for you and the future of Black Girls Heal.Probably the most important part of my hiatus was self-assessing my ADHD. I’ve spent years wondering whether or not I have ADHD. Every time I hear someone talk about the symptoms or describe their lives, I immediately think that they’re talking about my life. So, when one of my business mentors released a podcast episode describing their journey with ADHD, I decided it was time. I took several self-assessments and they all told the story of my ADHD. I then made an appointment with a psychiatrist to formalize my diagnosis and to be prescribed medication. My doctor agreed that I do indeed have ADHD, specifically inattentive ADHD, but unfortunately I cannot take any medication at this time. Now I’m looking for ways to treat this in a naturopathic way, but my goal is to elevate my overall health so that I can, someday soon, be placed on medications to help me with my activities of daily living. But that’s not all. This hiatus was a necessity for my life and business. Listen in to hear all about my revelations and what I focused on during the hiatus. I’m feeling better than ever and I cannot wait to get back into the swing of things and help women, specifically Black women, to heal.  In this episode: [00:34] Welcome back to the Black Girls Heal podcast![02:15] I took this time to go through the Recovery School curriculum. [03:26] It was also a time to self-assess for ADHD and get clear on what I’m manifesting.[05:08] Self-care was a huge focus for me during the hiatus as was personal development. [06:08] I sought clarity around how I help women publicly and privately. [07:57] I’ve suspected for several years that I qualified for the inattention version of ADHD, so I decided it was time to dig deeper. [11:52] How I approached my self-assessment and treatment. [14:09] The things I checked off as it applies to inattentive ADHD. [18:57] After all this work, I’m not able to take ADHD medication. [23:04] Why I want to be able to take medication in addition to natural therapies. [26:54] I do not want to see black people continue to struggle with their mental health when they need more than therapy, yoga, or prayer. [29:00] Stepping into my feminine energy has helped heal broken areas of my life. [32:00] I’m planning to head out to New York because travel is great for my soul, especially because my trips allow me to connect with students. [34:30] I’ve started dropping my excuses around exercise as self-care. [36:55] Be careful about the things that you say you’ll never participate in. [38:15] The last few things I focused on during the hiatus revolved around the business. [40:26] I’ve been wanting to start a YouTube channel for a long time, and I’m ready to do it, but in a different format. [42:30] I am launching a planner. Listen to learn what this planner is built to do for women everywhere. [44:42] I’m revealing the name of the new business and who this planner is for. [46:32] How I used the hiatus to confront and overcome my own impostor syndrome. [48:17] Stay tuned for all of these updates. Ready to heal your Love Addiction & Love Avoidance?

#106: When They Break Up With You Because You ‘Deserve Better’

Something I see a lot with the women that I serve is this stressful and conflicting scenario of hearing the phrase “you deserve someone better”. This is a phrase that is commonly used when someone, particularly a romantic partner, seeks to cut ties with us.  In today’s episode, I’m sharing helpful and encouraging advice about finding the message within that particular message. I share 3 messages that you should know when you hear phrases such as “you deserve someone better,” or “it’s not you, it’s me”. I discuss why accepting this phrase stems from a low sense of self-worth, and a one-sided negotiation that only happens within yourself. It can be easy to personalize and internalize this message. And my hopes with today’s episode is that I provide a new perspective to this roller coaster of a scenario. This is a common situation many of us find ourselves in at one point or another. So listen to this episode as many times as you need, share it with a friend or family member, and take the messages that resonate with you.Ready to heal your Love Addiction & Love Avoidance?

#103: How to Know When You Are Done with Your Healing Process

One of the most common questions I get from my clients as we start working together is “how do I know when this is all going to be over?” The truth is many of my clients are dealing with terrible, horrific, and painful stuff that they don’t want to deal with anymore. In today’s episode, I share the answer that I’ll give to you if you find yourself asking the same question. It’s not the prettiest answer, but it’s the best answer I have for you. I also share some smaller ways of noticing the real impact happening in your life. Healing is not black and white, and the idea of never having any issues or disappointments in your relationships, bank account, and other aspects of your life is unrealistic. It is my hope that the 3 different steps I share with you will help you notice just how far you’ve come and are continuing to go with your healing process.  Ready to heal your Love Addiction & Love Avoidance?

#102: 3 Mistakes Made as a Love Avoidant in Marriage

This week, we’re finishing up our series on mistakes that I’ve made in my intimacy disorders and my relationship history. In this episode, I’m sharing the 3 mistakes that I’ve made as a love avoidant in my committed partnerships, including my marriage. Love avoidance is the persistent act of putting up walls with loved ones, as if we were holding up an invisible shield. Some of us loudly declare our love avoidance by announcing that we have a hard time trusting people. Some of us might hide our voices well, but no one really gets to know the real us. Although I’ve been more of a love addict in my past, where I overcompensated and made myself more emotionally available, what ended up happening was I fueled my love addictive behaviors. From learning how to access my feelings to involving my partner into my every day life, this episode will uncover my mistakes in an attempt to help others identify the core lack of skills of knowing how to be truly intimate with people and partners. Ready to heal your Love Addiction & Love Avoidance?

#101: 3 Mistakes Made as a Love Addict in Marriage

So many of the teachings that I share on this podcast are targeted situations for single women. This week, I’m talking about how intimacy disorders, particularly love addiction, show up in committed relationships. This episode will define what being a love addict means as I share how my love addiction shows up in the forms of seeking constant verbal affirmation, making myself available to becoming who my committed partners wanted me to be, and my over-commitment to “fixing it,” even if they were red flags. These 3 mistakes that I’ve made as a love addict come from my personal experience, strength, and understanding. And I’m sharing them in the hopes of helping others find resilience, community, and comradery with those who share the same experience. Ready to heal your Love Addiction & Love Avoidance?

#100: 3 Mistakes I Made Dating as a Love Avoidant

When I was dating, I made a lot of mistakes related to how I presented in my intimacy disorders. This week, I'm talking about how my love avoidance showed up for me in my relationships. For me, my personal experience and how that connected to my religious education really amplified a lot of my avoidance which is also discussed. This episode will not span all of the ways love avoidance can show up in relationships as that as been discussed in previous episodes.
