As the kids say, some folks will just have to stay mad.
"I have to unconditionally surrender to the care and support of those around me. I have to be willing to let my heart be nourished just as much as my body."
"I once felt guilty because a friend spent thirty minutes looking for parking near the cafe I chose to meet them at."
"As a patient in a larger body, I feel it's important that we are on the same page regarding my treatment."
"‘You three get two scoops of ice cream.’ She then looked at me and said, ‘You’ll get a kiddie scoop.’”
"I avoided those relationships where love was free and easy. Because it didn't feel 'earned,' so I didn't feel worthy."
I’m breathless now, looking back at all the ways you would not back down from survival.
