Weekend Reading, 9.10.22

Happy weekend. I had plans every night this week and am a sleepy girl, starting to get that “pouring from an empty cup feeling.” My boyfriend said it best: I did this to myself. There is no one to blame but ME. (I think my sweet spot for plans is two weekday nights; home the rest of the time). As I write this on Friday evening (before more plans!) my goal tomorrow is to sleep in and have a really calm and restful day.

I do have a photo shoot tomorrow (the weather here is killing me, it is so hard to do my job when it’s constantly raining or a hundred degrees!). It might be another indoor shoot, we shall see! Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s great! Enjoy this week’s links, it’s a little longer than usual as there were just so many good things to share. xoxo

    Hi Grace, so much to unpack here. I’m so outraged with victim blaming/blaming women; curfews for women at colleges, but not for the men who are doing the assaults? Penalizing women and restricting abortion rights and healthcare; We are not getting pregnant by ourselves! Why is asking men to step up always the last suggestion? Not sure what the answer is, but expecting men to start taking some responsibility would be a start. I know there are good ones out there. I know them, they are friends, fathers, brothers, boyfriends, etc. I don’t feel like we can have working solutions until 100% of the population realizes, these issues affect all people. Thank you for another great round up!

    Thank you so much for including the ‘how to help a grieving friend’ article. This is a topic that should be kept on our radar screens (IMO) because we ALL have to deal with it in life – personally and with our friends. I now have a couple of “former friends” after a recent loss – which, of course, only compounded the grief I was already experiencing. While I give a lot of grace to people for ineptitude/ignorance, there are just some things that I cannot come back from and this article helped to articulate how I was feeling about the situation.

      This hit home for me so much I responded on the that blog. Everyone needs to read this! My best to you; it’s shocking to me that people drop off because they can’t deal. Not to wish this on anyone, but unfortunately they will one day experience grief themselves whether or not they want to.
