The Power of Choice

Reading Time: 5 minutesIt wasn’t until a recent serious illness and a diagnosis of having a chronic autoimmune disease that I finally woke up and understood that I was living my life on auto-pilot.

The One Thing We Should Not Be Teaching Girls About Sex

Reading Time: 3 minutesThe dialog needs to change. Girls need to be taught self-respect and self-love early, and so do boys.

There is a lot of talk right now about teaching boys about consent and boundaries, and that’s way past due. However, there needs to be a conversation about teaching girls that sex isn’t a prize to give away in exchange for something, like love and that love comes from inside first and when it does you don’t feel so desperate to get it somewhere else.
