"The thing about patriarchy is that individual men, gay and straight, are often really wonderful people who you love deeply, but they have internalized some really poisonous shit. So every once in a while they say or do something that really shakes you because you’re no longer totally certain they see you as a human being, and you feel totally disempowered to explain that to them."
"Make a pact with yourself today to not be defined by your past"

"Healing is a choice. It is not an easy one because it takes work to turn around your habits. But keep making the choice and shifts will happen."
— Yehuda Berg (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
