“Black women give and give and give to the point of emotional exhaustion. Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen lets us know how to break this unhealthy cycle by learning self-forgiveness, which through God’s help, leads to self-love and the power to say, ‘No, I come first in my life.’”—Mary J. Blige Black women are beautiful, intelligent, and capable—but mostly they embrace being strong. In Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen, clinical psychologist, Dr. Inger Burnett-Zeigler, praises Black women’s strength, while exploring how trauma and adversity have led to emotional pain and shaped how they walk through the world. The strength of Black women is intimately tied to their unacknowledged suffering. An estimated eight in ten have experienced some form of trauma, ranging from childhood abuse, domestic violence, pregnancy trauma, sexism and racism. When left unaddressed, this trauma can have a detrimental impact on mental and physical health. Dr. Inger Burnett-Zeigler explains that by embracing the strong Black woman image, Black women are not attending to their own needs, which is necessary to move from surviving to thriving. Through mindfulness and compassionate self-care, Dr. Burnett-Zeigler offers methods to establish authentic strength from the inside out. This informative guide to healing is life-changing, encouraging Black women to prioritize themselves, boldly claim their self-worth, as well as discover the fullness and beauty in both their strength and vulnerability.
