At a young age, my mother taught me some valuable lessons such as to never depend on a man and to love yourself unconditionally.She was a single mother, raising two kids on her own. She had too much pride to ask others for help. She never felt the need to have a man by her side to make her feel complete, and I admire her for that. However, the most valuable lesson that she has taught me is to never allow a man to make you feel unworthy.
As a student, things can get pretty hectic. As summer slowly comes to an end, back to school season is approaching. This means returning to a routine, early mornings, copious amounts of coffee, and sleepless nights.

So to put it into perspective, let’s say there is a King & a Queen of an empire. They have children and because of their status and hierarchy, their children will become heirs oneday receiving all of the King & Queen’s inheritance when the time permits.
I can’t think of any better time period than now that the issues and movements of women have been put in the forefront. More than ever, we are empowered to embrace our curves, step out without make-up, and care less about wearing “too much make-up.”
Not too long ago, I read a post from a man that outlined the reasons why he would only date women of any other race except black women.

Travel is such a wonderful way to embrace the idea of having very few essential material items in your life. You get to really know what’s most valuable to you and what’s just added weight in your pack.
You approach the looming doors of the art gallery – promising oodles of paintings and sculptures with very few explanation panels and possibly including some modern or abstract art.
