My Story Part II

Okay Ms. Wright, we are ready for you. My prepping process for my C-section was now complete.  After I gave birth to my son, I was scared, confused and worried. I had no clue how to be a mom, my family was in shambles and I was still a child myself who barley had a roof over her head. This young man whispering sweet nothings in my ear made things seem okay, if only for a moment. The violence didn’t show itself until after I had my son. His controlling…

They Are Watching

Warning:  The contents of the video are graphic. According to the Childhood Domestic Violence Association, children of domestic violence are 3 times more likely to repeat the cycle in adulthood, as growing up with domestic violence is the most significant predictor of whether or not someone will be engaged in domestic violence later in life.  The decision to leave is never easy, but in doing so, we not only save our lives, but the lives of our children.     janetmichelle.com   0 Shares Tweet Share

Survivor – My Story

I will never forget the day I met him. I was hanging with some friends  I had recently met in my new neighborhood.  One day we were casually strolling in the neighborhood, when one of the girls said as we walked by his house, “girl there is fine guy that lives in that house and he looks just like Prince”, we all just burst out laughing. She went on to say , how nice he dressed and how he had money and wore a lot of jewelry. The way she…

Your Language

    I had the wonderful opportunity to a Live Podcast of Male Translations with Clarence Brown.  The entire event was phenomenal; the dialogue between both male and female guests was outstanding.  There was one thing that stuck with me though, as I exited the building. A comment was made  regarding the importance of a woman understanding her man and his language.   On my ride home,  I really meditated on that statement.   I came to the conclusion that communication is truly the  key to learning and understanding your significant others…

Five Healthy Way to Move Beyond a Bad Break-up

Break-up’s suck! There is just no fancy way of saying it. Even if the decision was a mutual one, they still suck. The longer the relationship, the tougher it seems. Moving on eventually happens, but sometimes it seems like it takes forever. Often times when relationships end you go through the cycle of grief without even realizing it.   You toss and turn at night playing the scene over and over in your mind, wondering if you could have done or said something different.  One night I was trying to gain…

Waiting On My Boaz

  Yes, I’m going there.  My problem with this mentality is that, in my opinion, you place yourself in a perpetual mental state of waiting on a man. You hold your life in suspense until you meet him.   The problem with this is, sometimes you are so preoccupied with waiting on him that you lose focus on yourself and your dreams in the process. In some cases, you build this huge fantasy of a man and compare every man you meet to it. Some even become weary in waiting. You…

Loving Them Through Their Addiction

I’m sure the heroine epidemic during the 60’s and 70’s decimated families, but I wasn’t born until the mid-70’s so, I really don’t have a great grasp on the impact of it. However, the crack cocaine epidemic of the 80’s and 90’s was altogether something different.  I watched a stable neighborhood with intact families transform into a neighborhood ridden with crime and families torn apart due to the drug.  Unfortunately, my family wasn’t exempt.  My family wasn’t perfect, but it was still my family. I had a two parent household…

Online Dating Tips

As a single mom, should you choose to date online, do so with caution. In my opinion, online dating is no different than meeting someone face to face. I say this because, whether you meet a person face to face or virtually you still must get to know them; you just can’t skip that process.  Also, online dating gives you a chance to meet new people which is good, especially if you are not the type that has a busy social life. So, here are some tips to keep in…
