15 Amazing Quotes by Black Women You Can Trust In

Every woman should have another female they can go and talk to – no matter the age. For me, it’s my mom and best friend. My mom, of course, is wise, but far from kind. She’s going to tell it like it is, no matter how it makes me feel. And sometimes, that’s ok because it’s exactly what I need.

At other times, I’ll turn to my best friend (sometimes right after or before my mom) and she gives good advice too and doesn’t sugarcoat it. It’s just different because I psych myself into thinking only she knows exactly what I’m going through or how I feel.

However, I must remember, my mom was once young too, and obviously must remember the situation if she’s giving me the great advice that she is.

Now there are some times where I just sit back and marinate by myself, but turning to quotes from strong, black women are one of my go-to’s. Here are fifteen amazing quotes by black women you can trust in.
