    Co-Dependency

    PODCAST: Empowering Motherless Daughters(EMD) Topic: Co-Dependency Speaker: Zainab  At some point in my life, I looked for my mother in you. I looked for my mother in my friends, co-workers, manager, neighbors… Everybody! I looked for my mother in everyone and anyone because I was desperate.  As a child, I never had my mother around. I don’t have memories of my mother being around, no mother-daughter relationship, and as I grew into a teenager, my father saw how much I was in need of a mom and it would make him so sad. He would tell me stories about how my mother would leave for days sometimes weeks, and he…

    How to deal with an Angry Mom

    Last week, I talked about five types of toxic moms. One of them is an angry mom. An angry mom is a mom that is in a constant state of anger andif you were raised by such a mom, you always have to walk on eggshells because you don’t want to make her upset. That is not a good home environment as it not only really devalues the child, the child is unsure of herself and is constantly trying to parent her mom at the same time because she don’t want to make her mom upset. So she is always careful. The child is forced to be grown up and misses out on really being child and we don’t want that. So let’s get into it.  • It Is Not…

    Nurses:overworked and patients are suffering!

    At some point or the other, everyone must deal with work overload at their jobs. The stress of the extra work can cause them to under-perform, not really put in 100% efforts into their job. For people with jobs that don’t directly deal with the matters of life and death, this occasional under-performance is usually not a problem. But can the same be said for jobs in healthcare? Particularly for nurses who spend their entire day by the patients’ bedside caring for them, discussing with doctors about the patients’ health status, and interacting with the patients’ families? Is it a good idea to overload the important pillars of healthcare with…

My son and I arrived at the Intercontinental hotel, and At the entrance of the hotel my son and I were greeted by not one but three hotel helpers to assist us with our luggage.

    GRIFFITH PARK LOS ANGELES!

    Griffith Park LA What an amazing experience it was visiting the famous Griffith Park of Los Angeles. Okay, let’s start from the beginning. My son wanted to check out the Griffith Park, so the two of us caught an Uber from Chinatown to Griffith Park. I assumed the park was like one of the parks in Delaware (Lums Pond, Glasgow Park, etc), more like Lumps Pond Park with maybe a few black snakes that don’t really hurt humans unless provoked. My son knows that I love hiking on miniature parks, so he was excited to see my response. He loves it when I love his adventures. I asked the Uber…

    WHY DO YOU HATE YOURSELF?

        The different form of self-hatred (Internal Racism) I keep hearing about this “self-hatred” word but I am confused by it. What exactly is self hatred? Do people know that their actions demonstrate self hatred? Do I know when my action is as such? For example, as the only black manager/supervisor or member of a team, you expect that they should look out for their own kind and be held accountable, right? Well, let me tell you something. There are black people that are racist to their own kind. Picture this; You work with this black co-worker that goes out of his way to be interactive, friendly and kind…
