Ok so i don’t know how many of you saw my embroidery set from last year showing women in film statistics, but to tie in with International Women’s day over on Screenqueens and the learning I’ve done in the past year, I’ve added a couple more.
Source. This is a real thing. It’s happening.
This is HUGE news, and of course no one is talking about it because it is not a part of popular culture. For the first time in the history of the world, there is a possible preventative cure for one of the most deadliest viral diseases to have entered the human gene pool. There is hope for those who have been diagnosed with a disease that may have given them only 20 or so years to live. This breakthrough in the science/pharmaceutical community means that other viral diseases and genetic mutations that were once incurable are now on the table for complete eradication. I’m absolutely seething that no one is talking about this on the news 24/7.
Something I have realized today is that sadness is a domino effect. Because you are sad you put up a hurtful defense mechanism or avoid people. Because of that, others think you do not like them and don’t reach out to you. Because of that, you think others do not like you. You become sadder, and it continues to affect your relationships.
Everything I do affects my relationships, and what I realize now too that everything I don’t do does too. I’ve been on both sides of the sadness, and to everyone I’ve inadvertently created a distance or disconnect… I am sorry.
And for the next time I feel no one likes me, I have to remember to reach out, not hide.
