News from The Bookosphere!

“When I think back, I feel shame, to be honest, because I think to think of yourself as the kind of young woman who allows herself to be controlled by a relationship, that’s something that makes you feel like you’ve failed as a feminist or, you know, failed as a woman. But that was a reality for me. I didn’t know how to navigate this relationship. I didn’t know that it was unhealthy. So I think extending the same mercy and kindness to yourself that you do to your friends and your family, I think that’s a huge thing.”
