The secret to loving yourself is setting the bar so low that you are proud of everything you do.
"Wow, I can breathe, good for me."
"I actually finished my essay, woo."
"I got out of bed today, reaching for the stars."
"Good job on that not dying thing body."
"I participated to the minimal extent in society, I rock."
this girl in my class today was writing a ton of stuff on her paper while we were taking notes and i was like “woah what are you writing did i miss something she said” and the girl laughed and was like “oh i’m not taking notes this is a list of things that annoy me”
If children of color have to be aware of the realities of racism, white children should too.
I’m tired of hearing that white children are too young to understand the consequence of their words or actions when for nonwhite kids they live with the impact of racism every day
