I honestly was scared to post that when I first wrote it. I thought people were going to tell me I was whining/underestimating my privilege/yadda yadda. And although now it seems a little unsophisticated to me (I’m totally my biggest critic), it was real at the time and I had to express it. My perspective has evolved since then (I’m waiting for the articulation to come to me so I can share it with you), but I get these kinds of messages a lot (most of them seem too private to answer them publicly). Still, I appreciate every single time someone reaches out to me, because it reminds me that I’m not alone too… that’s the feeling we’re all after anyway, right?
Seriously though… thank you.
