Publisher's Summary

Speaker, writer, and producer Trey Anthony breaks it down, giving Black women a relatable voice and personalized "keeping it real" to-do list on how to practice self-love and self-care.

Therapy is not just for White women - no matter what your momma told you!

After a lifetime of never truly relating to the personal-development experts because of the color of her skin, Trey Anthony has written the book she needed to read as a Black woman trying to navigate a world filled with unique challenges that often acts like she doesn't exist.

On the outside Trey Anthony was the overachieving, reliable, and strong Black woman she was raised to be, but on the inside the pressure of sacrificing her own needs to please others was building. When her grandmother and mother raised her strong, they also unknowingly taught her that self-love and expressing emotions were weak, creating an unhealthy dynamic that had Trey facing burnout and rock bottom. 

In Black Girl in Love (with Herself), Trey breaks down the lessons and tools that she used to heal her life, including how to:

  • Set clear and healthy boundaries - even with the people who raised you
  • Quit being the family ATM
  • Sort out who is a real friend and who is just there for parties and gossip
  • Confront microaggressions at work without missing a beat
  • Forget who Black women are "supposed" to be
  • And fall in love with yourself!

Great Read

I enjoyed this book. Reason being, it resonated so much with I and other black women upbringing and perceptions of how we perceived ourselves due to the traumas that afflicted us and the demonic stigmas placed on black women/men all due to treacherous oppression. Thank you Sis.🇯🇲💜🇯🇲

Amazing Book!

This book is what every black girl need to read! The affirming, the confirmation and overall reassurance of the worth of black women was so refreshing to hear! I recommend this to all black women who struggle to love themselves in a healthy way! Please do yourself a favor!

Not What I expected!!

The author portrays herself as a Canadian version of Oprah, when that’s far from the truth. This and an unwillingness to live in the reality of life makes me think she wrote this book to appease the audience but not to provide real insight for the readers or herself. I also thought the book portrayed someone who wasn’t thankful had not found out what makes her happy. I do think it is important that she hi-lighted the influence the elders have on us. I There’s a part where she talks about needing her own time at the time of her sisters wedding. The way she describes it & the attention she brought makes me think she might be a narcissist and always wants the attention centered around her. Can she truly be happy for someone? Her partner might have left all because she was tired of the constant need & energy the author required.

Great read for all my black girls

First off I loved that the book was read by the author. That gives my audiobooks a different feel. This book definitely touched on many bases of growing up as a darker skinned black girl. I have already referred this book to all my Black Girl Magic sisters.

Thank you for your recommendations, Audible!!!

I love Trey straight forward, brutally honest. From her past experiences to her current Life, the problematic situation of losing her relationship via text. Trey lifted the veil, saying, I'm not okay. It's okay to be vulnerable and love yourself just like you are, perfectly imperfect. I was indeed in awe of Trey’s voice. The inner dialogue I will have never admitted about Black women. The fear, the S on my chest complex, and never being enough.

Powerful!

Amazingly talented author and story teller. This book hit me at the core of my insecurities and empowered me to prioritize self-care. I was laughing throughout every chapter and pondering on the end of chapter questions and affirmations. Sis, get ya mind right!
