Dear Mary Jane Perfection ≠ Success

In today’s episode of the Uncaping, Unmasking, and Unhiding series Shirl and Natty welcome listeners to the first day of peeling back the layers of  Mary Jane Paul of the hit show Being Mary Jane.

Being Mary Jane is a story of a single Black woman trying  to balance a busy career, a needy family, and an extremely complicated personal life all while living up to a misguided view of perfection and success.

Mediocrity is never an option for Mary Jane. She/s out here in theese news anchor streets with her perfect career, perfect car, and perfect house and dreaming about the perfect love. But clearly Mary Jane didn’t get the memo that mediocrity is not the opposite of perfection. 

But, she gon’ learn today. LOL!!!  Tap in and let’s get this healing, sis and  when you’re finished, share your thoughts with us in the  Shades of Strong Facebook Community.  Our Facebook community is a safe space where you can connect with other Black women and have open and honest discussions about things that concern us individually and collectively. This is a safe space where we can lean on each other in times of trouble and unrest, and dance with each other in times of celebration.
