& the benefits of doubt
What a powerful reframing of self-doubt. Love this, thank you for sharing!
Thank you for taking the time and effort to do this beautifully researched and written piece,!
Really enjoyed this. Thank you!!
Beautiful. Puberty is the worst, especially the creepy old guy attention when you’re like 13. Vividly remember it.
Hey Freya this is perfect! I completely agree with your perspective, have been saying similar all my life. I love the heart in your writing. It’s inspiring. I just watched a documentary in the BBC Imagine series about Labi Siffre. If you can find it where you are I think you might like it. Wishing you more wonderful exploratory writing days. Jane
Thank you for this. “Worrying is an act of love, I think to myself.” This hit me hard! I’ve been worrying this week about this question of how to balance a work life, a fulfilling life of the mind, and the desire to love and be part of the home. This was the perfect piece to read. Thank you.
How we STILL cling to the notions of all those dead white guys from a time when everything was shitty to everyone not white and male is why I am a firm advocate for flushing everything with a whiff of "canon" about it and starting fresh all over with he shit we've learned since those mofos were first beginning to suck up all the air.
