Being impeccable with your word is a superpower, and to truly become more than a spectator and write the script to your own life, you have to eliminate the word "can't" from your vocabulary. You are the first person to hear every word that comes out of your mouth, so it's important that you speak positivity over yourself. Despite what others may feel about you, you are the master of your destiny and the only person stopping you from becoming the woman of your dreams is you, just ask La La Anthony, who says she can care less about what anyone says she "can't" do.

Earlier this month, (light spoilers ahead) the sixth episode of Power's final season aired, where La La's character, La'Keisha, said farewell for now to the show's loyal audience members and during that time, the internet took the opportunity to criticize La La's acting skills; but earlier this week on The Breakfast Club, sis had time for those who say she "can't act". She explained:

"I think you got to be worried when people aren't talking. My thing is that I'm doing it. So, if I couldn't do it, then why am I doing it?"

La La, who originally started her career in the media industry at only 15 years old, says despite the opinions of her critics, she's damn proud of how far she's come and refuses to dim her own light because some people can't identify with her glow-up. While the 38-year-old mother-of-one says she knows that she has a lot to learn when it comes to her newfound career in acting, she's willing to do the work.

"I put my all into it. I didn't start that way so it's been a different journey for me, but that doesn't mean I can't do it. People just naturally want to hate because you started differently. 'You're not a real actor, you started on the radio.' Alright, maybe I didn't come into it like you, but I put the work in and I continue to put the work in so that doesn't bother me."

In the past, La La has been candid about how her career changed after marrying her husband Carmelo and her desire to move out of his shadow and create her own spotlight. And she's done a damn good job of it because sis is booked, busy, and unbothered. Along with landing roles on Netflix's Holiday Rush, The Chi and the FOX reboot of BH90210, La La is also a full-time mom and has decided to focus the energy that she has left over on the people who actually matter

"We're so quick to respond to the people that are hating and not respond to the millions of people that are showing you so much love. You want to respond to the one person that's saying some foul sh-t about you, but you won't even say thank you to the hundreds that are saying great sh-t about you. I had to change my mindset when it came to that. Now I will clap back. I have no problem telling somebody how I feel, but I appreciate all the love and all the people that do support me because that outweighs the hate by a million."

La La says that while others may not recognize the merit behind her opportunities, she knows the value of her journey. Along with having an extensive, two-decade-long resume in television, La La says she also has the co-sign of industry legends like Debbie Allen, Phylicia Rashad, and Samuel Jackson, so it doesn't really matter what anyone else thinks.

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
