Women feel more guilt than men, not because of some weird chromosomal issue but because they have a history of being blamed for other people’s behavior. You get hit, you must have annoyed someone; you get raped, you must have excited someone; your kid is a junkie, you must have brought him up wrong.

Saying “I support a sex industry - but only when the women are safe, healthy, and treated with dignity” is like saying “I support imperialism - but only when it works out well for the colonized people.” If the only version of a thing you support is a hypothetical version that has never actually existed in the history of that thing, you don’t actually support it.

I can’t stress enough how important it is that you surround yourself with supportive people who make you feel important and special, and who enhance your life with their presence. If their presence is making you feel worse instead of better, re-evaluate why you’re letting them stay.
Worry pretends to be necessary but serves no useful purpose.

You are enough. You are so enough, it is unbelievable how enough you are.
