“floor rituals encapsulates the need to challenge the concept of continuous resiliency. I recently realized that by constantly priding myself on being resilient, I was playing into the ‘Strong Black Woman’ archetype. For the longest time, I was not giving myself ample time to process my emotions because I was more concerned with putting on a facade for others, but also for myself. The words “I’m okay” were on a continuous loop in my head, but they were hollow and didn’t hold any weight. floor rituals is about being okay with not being okay and learning to move through all of my emotions instead of detouring around the unpleasant ones. This is my way of affirming that I am deserving of softness and vulnerability.
