“every time you
tell your daughter
you yell at her
out of love
you teach her to confuse
anger with kindness
which seems like a good idea
till she grows up to
trust men who hurt her
cause they look so much
like you.”

    1. We are all such sponges as children. It’s not just our bones that shape and mold us, it’s the words and actions we soak up.
      You’ve been on my mind–hope Juno is not wreaking too much havoc, though it looks like you’re getting hammered. Stay safe and warm. xo


    1. You are so welcome. I’m new to rupi’s work, but am already such a fan of her empowering messages. We’ll see more of her stuff here in the weeks ahead. 🙂
      Hope you are well Archita. Much love to you.
