    Is There Really a Thin Line between Love & Hate?

    We are back with another classic black movie and in this episode it is a Thin Line Between Love and Hate. This movie is LOADED and of course we are discussing it through our mental health lens. We are talking about trauma, trauma responses, avoidance, defensiveness, attachment, anxious attachment, and bypassing red flags and signs in relationships. Of course, we also have some questions that need answers for this movie. Join us as we go on this super deep dive and explore this movie and the mental health aspects of it.

    Waiting to Exhale Pt. 4: Bernie & Losing Yourself

    Waiting to Exhale Pt. 4: Bernie & Losing Yourself

    “I thought that if I gave him what he needed, he’d give me what I needed” Whew! Of course we had to save Bernie for last in our four part Waiting to Exhale episodes. Bernie found out the hard way what happens when you give your all and lose yourself in other people.

    Join us, Jasmine and Charmaine, two Black licensed therapists as we discuss Angela Bassett's character, Bernie, from Waiting to Exhale. We are getting into what happens when you find yourself giving up all of you and then being left with what feels like nothing in return. We are also discussing codependency, falling apart, letting go, and the struggle to find yourself in the starting over process. Then just like always, we have some questions that need answers for this character in the movie.

    05:20- Bernie and self-sacrifice

    07:35 why some people can’t handle success (when relationships become transactional)

    13:15 How did Bernie get into this situation (lost identity, unmet expectations)

    20:26 Bernie’s stages of grief (sad, angry, delusional, dgaf, chopping hair off)
