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 version of ourselves. Much of what we’ve been experiencing in various ways over the past couple of months is grief. Grief related to the loss of loved ones, our previous way of life, and our ideas about what 2020 would look like. To help us dig a little deeper into what grief looks like given our current state of affairs, Dr. Ajita Robinson is back with us this week. Dr. Robinson and I chatted about our collective sense of grief, how our rituals around grief have been upended, the importance of processing symbolic losses, and her thoughts about the work that will need to be done on the other end of the pandemic.  Resources Mentioned Visit our Amazon Store for all the books mentioned on the podcast!

This is a special bonus episode of the podcast brought to you with the support of Pfizer. I am thrilled to be partnering with Pfizer on this series as we countdown to this year's Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit. I’ll be speaking in the Pfizer booth during the summit about how our mental health is impacted by our experiences in the workplace, in entrepreneurship, in leadership roles, and in relationships with others and wanted to kick these conversations off here on the podcast talking to a few women about their experiences. In the finale of this series, you’ll hear my conversation with Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall who serves as Senior Medical Advisor at Pfizer. Dr. Freda and I chatted about the work that she’s done around health disparities, the factors she believes have led to her success, her tips for being a good mentee, and she shared the 4 groups of people she thinks we all need to have in our lives to continue to grow.

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.

Say that again. relationships requires much work. Getting married & having kids are not in my bucket list. Though I felt much pressure from family that I can't develop myself unless I have a child. A partner must be in alignment w/ my purpose & freedom & self development. My single & married life is very abundant. I have much flexibility to mentor more & to keep evolving & changing my jobs/business. I totally believe that I rather be single than to settle for a toxic masculine relationship. I firmly believe that getting into a relationship is a intentional choice not an obligation. It took much reprogramming. Now, as a single person it is now possible to foster & adopt kids. I had to limit my contact w/ family b/c I didn't enjoy all the pressure focusing on being partnered & many times people bring religion in the mix & I firmly express that there were many many single people & single parents & widowers in religious literature, actually all types of people & relationships are shown as examples. I'm all about self love & becoming emotionally intelligent. My life purpose is first & foremost. Make a single woman action plan this is similar to the mental health WRAP wellness recovery action plan or like an emergency plan. This was very insightful for someone to actually speak about what single people actually encounter.

How do you let go. Now knowing I'll never get a satisfactory why. I'm still not sure how to fully move on

My experiences w/ being ghosted. Give self a time limit. & Always continue your self care & self love routine b/c it's not about you; you may not be compatible or the other person isn't able to express their boundaries for whatever reason. But men & women both do this. It is polite etiquette, but it is prevalent. Definitely, talk it out it need be. Also continue functions w/ self & your community.

I E been in therapy 2 years now a days not once as my most recent therapist, mental health asked me about my relationship with my parents and or siblings. Should I request a new one or seek outside the behavioral health center?
