Why We Need to Heal

I was recently asked why people of African heritage need to heal and transform ourselves, our families, our communities and our world.

I thought the answer was obvious. We need to heal physically, psychologically, emotionally and financially.

The damage that has been done is all around us, and inside of us.

To read more, see: Why We Need to Heal. This is the first part of a series.

For practical ways we can heal, see Success Strategies for Black People.

Hi Zhana,

You have stated some remarkable points which are absolutely true :-)

However, we black people don't live in the slavery anymore, so why are we still suffering? Didn't Europeans enslaved Asians for a while as well? Well, it's not exactly the same, but it's quite similar..but still they managed to feel free and to be healed. Why is it that black people don't always get along with each other?
Why is it that black men don't treat their wifes the way as it should be? I think it's all about mentality...we believe the crap people are telling about us. If we continue to believe the lies, things hardly will change in the black society.

A phenomenon you can see these days is that many black women don't want to marry black men, because they want to have a secure home for themselves and there children, a secure income and all that. I don't put all the blame upon black men, but some things are just factual...well you know the drill ;-)

I'm eager to hear your opinion about this :-)

Thanks for your comments, Nolver.

We have learned self-hatred which affects our relationships with each other, including romantic partnerships, parent/child relationships, business relationships and more. Stay tuned for the next instalment.
