overheard my mom say to her friend on the phone that i am a “self sufficient, strongly independent woman” and then she said “and she’s not even 5 feet tall” :-)
the worst thing you can say to someone is ‘you’re too sensitive’ because that’s basically saying ‘you feel things more deeply and fully than i do and this inconveniences me because now i have to be more mindful of my own actions’
you’re not too sensitive, the world is just callous and stubborn. sensitivity doesn’t make you weak and callousness doesn’t make you strong.
Le Corbusier, Villa Sovoy, 1928
i just met one of my students’ mom for the first time and she introduced me with “this is miss bailey, she gives the best hugs!”
it wouldn’t be a holiday without my family collectively trying to tell me how my veganism is ruining my life AND theirs :-)

if someone you love is struggling, wouldn’t you want to do anything to help them? I honestly don’t know how people can just sit back and watch.
