'Please give yourselves grace.'

An evergreen reminder from Samantha Vincenty:

You’ve lived through a lot, with the mass-scale isolation and loss of the COVID-19 pandemic intersecting with an overdue focus on racial justice, the loss of reproductive freedom across many US states, deepening economic inequalities, an insurrection, and a daily onslaught of devastating global news, for starters. And that’s not even counting the increasingly frightening political tumult in the US that began a few years before March 2020.

And from my friend Keidra who tweeted the article:

So for MANY of us, just being here, alive is enough. Please give yourselves grace.
