Let me start off by stating that I love a good T.V. show, but as my husband and I were talking about certain shows and the images of the strong black power women, our hearts sadden.
How many girls and young women (sometimes older) desire to be an Olivia, Candice, or Mary Jane. Money, power, respect, in replace of true joy, morals, dignity, and a man to call her own. It’s sad to see side chicks and “main chicks” go back and forth proving they have something on the other as if either one of them has anything really.
The problem isn’t the shows, the problem comes in when women and girls go out in their real lives doing and being what is written for a show. All these little stupid love and hip hop type shows are saying this is who we are, this is who we’ve become, this is normal. Oh it’s so entertaining, but being played out in your reality it can kill your soul dead!
My point, let’s let T.V. stay on T.V. and live your real life abundantly!
Have you settled so much that you refuse to settle any more? I’d love to hear about it!
