139. Violence Among Women

Recently, in mainstream media, we have seen violence increasing among women. The Shanquella Robinson case, as well as on a recent episode of the Real Housewives of Potomac where Dr. Wendy Osefo, PhD. was a victim of violence, all while the people stood by and watched or encouraged the abuse. I discuss why this phenomenon happens as well as why we need to evaluate the relationships around us.

138. D.A.R.V.O.

D.A.R.V.O (Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim Offender), is what frequently happens when you get into an argument with a narcissist. It is gaslighting at its finest. The narcissist will deny a specific event happened, attack your character, and then reverse the situation to make themselves the victim. It encompasses victim-blaming, shaming, denial, and manipulation and is very dangerous to a victim of abuse. Because of D.A.R.V.O., victims can question their own reality and internalize blame.

133. Love Addiction, Love Avoidance, and Love Deprivation; Featuring Shena Tubbs

When we find ourselves in relationships that don’t serve our needs or may be abusive, our partners can have attachment wounds. Shena Tubbs, creator of Black Girls Heal joins us today to discuss love addiction, love avoidance, and love deprivation. If you find that you fall in love fast with potential or fantasy, and create stories of living happily ever after before truly knowing a person – you may struggle with love addiction. If you experienced relationship trauma that causes you to fear love and relationships, thrive in independence and freedom, you may struggle with love avoidance. If you struggle with shame, self-rejection, and unworthiness, and tend to push people away; then you may struggle with love deprivation.
