DEAR BEANIE.

"A Guide Book for the Misunderstood BROWN + BLACK GIRL"

Being the victim of bullying and how I was able to shine through.

 

I never realized until now how often I got manipulated and bullied. As an adult in my mid 20s, I noticed my emotions, how I reacted to things and knowing now they're stemmed from these events in my life. I started to make a list of not only the reoccurring people in my life that were heavy grey clouds but also the ones that I deemed as close friends.  I want to shed light on a topic about mental health, depression in the  POC community. We are always told to brush it off and be tough. In all honesty that doesn't really help, or make the problem go away. And it didn't help me.
