Inspired By: Audre Lorde
The sharing of joy, whether physical, emotional, psychic, or intellectual, forms a bridge between the sharers which can be the basis for understanding much of what is not shared between them, and lessens the threat of their difference.
When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.
Audre Lorde was a writer, womanist, librarian, and activist. Read more about her here.
