Since the series began in 2014 (following a successful pilot in 2013), we’ve watched Mary Jane, played by Gabrielle Union, try to balance her career and tumultuous personal life all while searching for “Mr. Right.” From her niece’s teen pregnancy to her relations with married men, Mary Jane has the weight of her world and others on her shoulders.
Throughout the show, we sticky notes with MJ’s handwriting, which are personal affirmations to help her through her days. Here are some of the best quotes from those sticky notes. If they can help Mary Jane smile, they certainly can help you too!
“The Woman Who Catches A Man’s Eye Earns A Purse, The Woman That Captures His Heart Earns His World”
“The woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself.”
“Some people feel the rain, others just get wet”
“Nobody can hurt me without my permission”
“But the Bible says, even though we may blow it every day,
God’s mercy is fresh for us every morning.”
“The truth is rarely pure and never simple.”
“Open to love”
“Free your soul”
