Strong Black Woman.
I both loathe and love her.
On one hand, I want to debunk myths and extol the beauty of her vulnerability.
On the other, I want to summons her energy, power, strength, and virtue when I am weak and afraid.
What, then, can I say?
The real goal is balance.
of masculinity and femininity.
of self-care and other-care.
of independence and interdependence.
And many more dichotomies.
Above all, I would rather others see in me the qualities indicative of a Balanced Black Woman.
