Session 132: Reimagining Single Life

Update: 2019-11-1322


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.

Today we’ll be digging into what it might look life to reimagine our image of the single Black woman and for this conversation we are lucky enough to be joined by Dr. Jessica D. Moorman. Dr. Moorman and I discussed the messages we get about dating and relationships from the media, how we can challenge and recreate some of these narratives for ourselves, what it looks like to embrace the freedom and potential that comes with being a single woman, and how you can begin to develop your single woman action plan.

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.
