She loves pool parties (though they are few and far between because she lives in Canada), hairless cats (though she hasn't yet met one in real life), and people who make her laugh. You can find her dancing, reading, drinking coffee or wine (dependent on the time of day), and watching Boy Meets World re-runs. @britburr

The Negative Affects of Being a “People Pleaser” and How to Break Free

“we all want to please and see others happy with us. It’s natural and not a bad thing. Though it becomes a bad thing when you ignore your own needs to please others, and when your pleasing is getting in the way other people’s ability to grow.”

What Feminism Means to Me | 7 Common Things We Say/Do That Perpetuate Patriarchy

For me, feminism is freedom. Freedom to say something isn’t right, freedom to ask questions, freedom to seek out a community and unconditional love among feminists alike, freedom for self-exploration, freedom for sexual liberation, freedom to be angry, freedom to by myself, and so much more. Feminism is recognizing and celebrating all that is good in the world and in humanity. Feminism is sisterhood. Feminism is a part of who I am and how I live, and I am grateful beyond compare for the individuals, literature, concepts, conversations, communities, and schools of thought which it has opened my eyes.
