Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.

job-hunting/getting rejected is soul destroying. someone must want me, right?

Nothing will ruin your 20’s more than thinking you should have your life together already.

caring about diversity and representation in media is so difficult, because it feels like the majority of the population calls it ‘tokenism’ or jokes ‘of course it matters: i’d like to see a female, black, muslim, james bond’, and doesn’t give a shit.

We are taught
those who hate themselves
are sick, monsters, pitiful.
It seems we are all
in the same boat.
Show me someone who does not
hate themselves
and I can show you ten more who do.

But unlike a lot of what passes for TV feminism, the show’s not just about women being confident or comfortable in their own skin. It’s about reaffirming that their skin, their body, and their decisions are theirs to control. This is the battle all women in America are living with right now, whether they realize it or not. I’m not saying I’m worried about someone owning my DNA, but I am exhausted by people exerting their own values and opinions onto my body.
