The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.
Since its 1999 theatrical premiere The Best Man franchise has been a beloved staple within our community. It was the talk of the town once again when the sequel, The Best Man Holiday, debuted in 2013. And now, 24 years later, under the direction of Malcolm D. Lee and featuring the original acclaimed cast aka the “Justice League of Black Hollywood.” The Best Man Final Chapters has once again ignited our conversations on what it means to be in community with friends and family. The kind of interpersonal relationships that know you well enough to tell you about yourself and hold space for you when you’ve lost who you are.
To discuss The Best Man: Final Chapters in-depth, this week, I'm in conversation with 2 more incredible members of the team, Content Director, Kamron Taylor and Content Specialist, Gorgeous West. In our conversation we explore, how the limited series met and missed our expectations, which character dynamics we were most enthralled by and disappointed in, and how we feel knowing that these are our final moments with Quentin, Shelby, Harper, Robyn, Murch, Candace, Lance, and Jordan. This episode does contain spoilers.

Randomly picked this episode and so happy to hear my fellow s&m alum! Thank you Cheryl!
So even if not all these people are narcissists, then at least we need to describe these kinds of relationships are emotionally abusive instead? Maybe people are using these terms in ways that are more trivial, but usually I see it used in cases of abuse, not "my partner spends too much time on self care and not enough time with me"
I see the article has a great deal of investment in content and science. I took the time to read them and found them quite interesting. You can check out gift card exchange kiosk
This is a nice article you shared with great information. Thanks for giving such wonderful information. I hope you will publish again such type of post. Also, please check out test gold with lighter?
TY, These are great tips. I enjoy how you are contributing to removing the stigmas of mental health and wellness and well-being. May you continue making great content. Namaste 🕊️Peace🤸Shalom🐵
I am on a whole healing journey. I am a proud black woman empath, healing from narc abuse and racial trauma. I neeeeed an online space where I can focus on black female healing and space to express emotion. Do you know of an online space where we can go?
Great episode. Thanks
this was fun to listen to
I never been so addicted to a podcast in my life. I love this so much. thank you.
this biatch is so full of herself. she prolly likes to smell her own farts
I love how your voice is very therapeutic and calming 🍃. I think you really gave great advice...I'll soon be in college/university and this was extremely helpful ✨thank you.
I loved this. I'm looking into starting a home schooling situation for myself and my students.
idk still feels like the denegration of black women. idk why people think this representation of black women is new. people have always thought of us this way, as the Jezebel character. WAP just feeds into that stereotype. why can't we have songs about black mothers, engineers, and scientists. why are we, as the beginning of the song says, characterized as whores.
Loving your content!!
TY TY In the past, this was a prevalent part of my life. 🚨Being in constant crisis. **I'm glad you mentioned that it isn't a personal failure.** These are very useful tips of how someone can effectively hold space for another person while they are in crisis. I actually had to develop a Wellness Recovery Action Plan(WRAP) because I didn't have consistent resources to assist me during those times. It was useful as you advised to have a coping tools kit. I call it my GO BAG. It had to be ready for any moment of crisis. You listed so so many helpful things that I used & they were very effective. Namaste 🐬Peace 💃Shalom 🐒
#youdidthat haha yes ma'am. I'll be naming mine the same now!
Outstanding topic thank you
TY TY This was an informative packed episode with a wealth of symptoms of sexual abuse as well as helpful resources & how to handle said situations. Many praise men for being hypersexual & not realizing that their hypersexuality or homosexuality or bisexuality or even asexuality could be symptomatic of prior sexual abuse. Many females get demeaned for being hypersexual or even multiple pregnancies when they may have been groomed & being sexually abused. I liked how both genders were recognized as potential targets & grooming & that victims can potentially become perpetrators. I agree majority of sexual abuse survivors were groomed & know their perpetrator(s) What also often get overlooked is that rape can also occur... when service members are deployed to war or within marriage to either gender. I'm just overjoyed for so much awareness & education & resources available for prevention as well healing after these travesties occurs. Sometimes, it is helpful to incorporate medication with therapy or even holistic healing approaches. Namaste 🐬 Peace 💃Shalom 🐒
In regards to the Tiffany's issue with postpartum depression, you mentioned that the friends were around right after the baby was born, but faded in the background not long after. I noticed that we as people are present for the joyous occasions (birthday) and the somber occasions (death), but we have a tendency to miss the heart of friendship that takes place between these two extremes.
