Iyanla Vanzant is talking today about the recent killing of George Floyd and the demonstrations and unrest resulting from the killing.
We are going to be discussing this on my Blogtalk radio show this Saturday: Success Strategies with Zhana: How Can We Create a Peaceful World?
Iyanla does not mention the recent killing of Breonna Taylor, a young woman in Louisville, KY who was also killed by the police. We need to bear Breonna Taylor in mind as well.
Iyanla is saying there is a lot of male energy around at the moment, and Black men need to get in touch with their feelings. And this is absolutely true. It can be hard sometimes for us as Black women to get in touch with our feelings, and its even harder for Black men to do so. If you are feeling angry, if you are feeling sad, if you are feeling despair, whatever we are feeling, it's important to stay in touch with our feelings and emotions.
And, of course, NVC is based on empathy, i.e. connecting with our feelings and needs. Empathy is at the heart of NVC.
We will be discussing this on my Success Strategies radio show this Saturday, so please tune in. We look forward to seeing you there.
