Having boundaries in your life is very important, because it teaches people how to treat you.

Being A Strong Black Woman is Bad For Your Health
Thank you for taking the time to listen to another episode of For My Brown Girls! Podcast.   This week I present the findings from the study, Superwoman Schema: African American Women’s Views on Stress, Strength and Health from the National Center for Biotechnology Information.  After interviewing 48 Black women ages 19-72 with various backgrounds, they wanted to know what goes into being a Strong Black Woman and how it impacted their health.  The study is broken up into 4 categories: 1. What are the characteristics of a Strong Black Woman 2. What factors that contribute to being a Strong Black Woman 3.  What are the perceived benefits fo being a Strong Black Woman 4.  What are the perceived liabilities of being a Strong Black Woman I'll be going through the researchers findings while providing quotes from the participants that support the information from the study.  Later in the episode, I will summarize what it all means and how being a Strong Black Women is bad for your health.  To end the episode on a positive note, I give you suggestions on how to balance being a Strong Black Woman with being a Healthy Strong Black Woman.
