    Ep. 41 Cut it out, and Stop Entertaining Disrespect.

    In this episode, I discuss the price of entertaining disrespect while dating. After this episode, you should have insight into what disinterest communicates to you. You should be able to see how hand-holding and guiding prospects through the dating process is harmful to your self-worth and disrespects you. Finally, I show what you are giving up when you try to coerce men through anger or tears into treating you with decency.

    Ep. 40 Why You Should Never Betray Your Feelings

    Ep. 40 Why You Should Never Betray Your Feelings

    In this episode, I discuss your emotions, no matter how uncomfortable they may make you feel are you. They aren’t separate entities that you manage. They are signals that tell you what you enjoy, what’s pleasant, what you dislike, and what you don’t want around you. All of those things are what you choose friends from, community from, or hobbies from.  So, what do you think happens when you ignore them?

Tulip 🌹 ,

This podcast was MADE for black women!

I follow Charlie on Twitter & I loved her tweets so it’s no surprise that I love her podcast. I’m a DV survivor & been dealing with a traumatic incident that almost took my life away & after months of suicidal thoughts, self destructive behaviors & feeling sorry for myself. I decided to follow the path of healing & this podcast is a STAPLE in my healing journey. To all Black Women who’ve been beaten, abused, forgotten & neglected by society and the people in it, I highly recommend Charlie’s podcast. You won’t regret it. Charlie has such a way of putting everything I feel into words & breaking it down too. Thank you Charlie, your content has saved me & as a Black women in her early 20s, you provide so much wisdom and knowledge that I’ll apply to build the life I want.

I’m really not into podcast but I have been trying new outlets lately and your podcast made me fall inlove with them! I’m a mental health clinician and your voice is so therapeutic, the suggestions & interventions are so on point! Hope you keep going! 🤍🤍

Changing my people-pleasing life!

I listen to this podcast every morning as I do my morning routine. When I brush my teeth I pop this on for 5 minutes or so and literally feel my soul being healed. 🧡This podcast replaced my usual unhelpful songs that I blast most mornings that end up bringing me down, Charlie you are a light don’t ever forget it. I am so in love with life thanks to you and your knowledge on how to deal with the craziness of it, I wish you so much success, love, and talk shows in the near future :)
