Lady, when was the last time you gave yourself the same energy and love you give everyone else in your life? If you find yourself constantly giving everyone your all and carrying the weight of the world without breaking, then you may be experiencing Black Superwoman Syndrome. Not sure how to be anything other than Black Superwoman? Well, today, Terri and Dr. Dom help us identify Black Superwoman Syndrome, invite us to put down the cape, and reflect on how we can show up for ourselves first.
