Stop telling young black women to pray their depression out. Stop it. Stop it. Stop it. If she does not believe in God, it is perfectly fine. You do not have to believe in God to be a good person. Stop telling young African women to take all their problems to Jesus in prayer. It is perfectly fine to go see someone to talk to and that person does not have to be their pastor. - Ijeoma Umebinyuo Meditation, Prayers, Black Power, Be A Better Person, Good Person, Positive Quotes, Believe In God, Pray, Cognitive Dissonance
