Sometimes the most radical thing you can do is tell the truth. . . Your voice is one of the most powerful tools that you have. That is why it is so emotionally destructive to be silenced, and so painful to be misunderstood. . . But then there are ways we avoid using our voice. Maybe you don't feel like you have anything of value to say. Maybe you don't expect your voice to matter. Maybe you don't know how to speak up, or aren't sure what to say. Whatever the reason, we owe it to ourselves and the people/causes we care about to use our voices to speak up, to advocate, to challenge, to affirm, and to teach. It isn't enough to have a seat at the table- what are you going to say when you get there? . . The truth I champion is our indisputable right to peace and pleasure. YOU DESERVE IT. Nobody else is owed your energy, your time, your gifts, or your wellness. I bring that message with me loudly, wherever I go. It is a challenge necessary for our collective healing and liberation from oppression. In a world that constantly devalues our humanity, truth is radical. It isn't always comfortable, but gives us the bravery to bring a microphone to the table and take up space for what we know is important. . . Thank you to the @theccnyc for creating #culturecon as a space for us creatives of colour to have real conversations about art, access, and community. Our voices were strong, and we will continue to speak up. For truth. For liberation. For the culture. . . Shirt reads: Women don't owe you shit. (Which is also true.) #catchfeelings

I decided to become a psychologist because my friend decided to become a psychologist. True story. : But first, some background. : I grew up admiring my sisters for pursuing careers related to their talents. Unlike them, I wasn't sure what my talent was, so I entered college “undeclared," and filled my schedule with random classes. : I stumbled upon psychology, liked it, and eventually majored in it. : I graduated college without a clue about what I wanted to do, so when a friend told me about his plans to go to graduate school, I applied to the same program the following year and got accepted. : Guys, THAT'S how I became a psychologist. : There's this misconception that each person MUST have a “calling." Not only is that belief untrue, it can hinder growth. If you're one of those people struggling to thrive due to a belief that “one day, it'll come to me," then you've likely been waiting for some arbitrary sign to tell you what to do, and you've avoided taking career risks due to fear that you'll make the “wrong" choice. But the longer you're in that state, the worst you feel for “falling behind" your peers. : Truth is, there's no “perfect" career for you. It's not mandatory that you “always knew" what you wanted to do. Some kids discover talents or interests that were REINFORCED enough that careers were born of out them, but it's not what happens to ALL or even MOST people. : For me, what started out as a seed of interest, grew into a tree of passion. I didn't know that I was going to fall in love with psychology as much as I did until I studied it, practiced it, and grew confident as a psychologist. : If my friend hadn't mentioned psychology school, I could've also stumbled into Law or business. 🤷🏻♀️ Maybe one day, I can still do those things, and I can become passionate about them too. : Moral of the story: Passion for something can be GROWN, and it's normal to have interest in multiple fields, but you have to pick one to start. : Photo: @steen.machine

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?

501686

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
