Learn to listen

Guys, learn to listen.
Learn to hold your opinion.
Learn to sit with discomfort.
Learn why you have that discomfort.

Consent

Consent isn't just something we should be teaching our kids (but yes, do this), it's something as adults we need to better understand & apply to our own lives.

Self-care

Allow yourself time for self care. Take baths, light a candle, read a long book, get a haircut, watch Anne of Green Gables on Netflix.

Let yourself love yourself.
