Listen! Cookie Lyon DID NOT come out the gate swinging. The way we see it (considering all the hell she went through) she had two options — FIGHT or FLIGHT, and if you know anything about Cookie Lyon, you KNOW she is NOT about that FLIGHT life.
In today’s episode of Uncaping, Unmasking, and Unhiding we’re taking a look at the fight trauma response as it relates to Cookie Lyon, and the events that thrust her into fight mode.
Tune in now as we chat it up about how “normal” the fight trauma response is when life just keeps happening.
We also love to have you join us in in the Shades of Strong Facebook Community where you can connect with other Black women have open and honest discussions about things that concern us individually and collectively. This is safe space where we can lean on each other in times of trouble and unrest, and dance with each other in times of celebration.
