And that is how change happens. One gesture. One person. One moment at a time. ― Libba Bray  (v Adam Green)

Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth ― Pema Chödrön (v Peter Sims)

The original meaning of the word “perfect” from its Greek roots was not “without flaw” as it’s known in the English language in the last 400 years. The original root was about “completed for, or suited to a particular purpose.” We don’t have to be without flaw to be suited to a particular purpose. There are countless examples throughout history of great and flawed leaders who were perfectly suited to their purpose.
— From: Do you want to be perfect or powerful? by Henna Inam

It isn’t disrespectful to the complexity of existence to suggest that despair is, often, just low blood sugar + exhaustion.Drake Baer
