Something I realized along the way is that righteous indignation doesn't feel great. Like for my health, I'd rather be able to communicate after the climax of my feelings. Pride can be great when you need to sell yourself or defend your chops. It's less great in conflict resolution. I try not to think about it in terms of being a black woman because ultimately that just psychs me out. The less decisions I make because of how I might be perceived, the better. I make this decision based on who I want to be as a person.


Thanks C1. I've been thinking about your response a lot over the last week and it's helped a lot


to desensitize people really the best way to go about dismantling unconscious bias? I can't remember the last time I was actually mad and yelling at someone at work. And the time to have 'a conversation' never seems to be right.

About to hit my 50th peleton class. As someone who was inactive pretty much all of last year, the fact that I found a workout I loved and stuck to it for 56 days. That I out of all people made time to do 50 workouts... I'm just feeling so grateful🥺


Feeling hurt as I saw my childhood friend (who I kept in touch with pre-covid) is out at a restaurant 5 minutes from my place. Used to do monthly zoom HHs with her the first 4-5 months of SAH but have since lost touch as I was being more cautious and she wasn’t due to (her reasons of) being single and not liking living with her elderly parents. I had offered to picnic but she never took the offer (and I haven’t seen her do it with other friends, she only dines at restaurants) (1/2)
