Rule # 1: Friends don’t diminish your feelings. They may not understand them. They may not agree with them. They don’t diminish them. They try their best to understand things from your perspective. Anybody who undervalues your feelings and refuses to give you the platform to be who you are, are simply not worth being in your life. Harsh? No. Truth? Yes. Because the people who simply write you off as “impossible to understand” or say “you’re overreacting” are restricting your ability to be who you are; essentially, they don’t respect your feelings. Your feelings are real. Notice when a friend is being reasonable, but not restrictive. Also, pay attention to how you treat your friend and their feelings. You wouldn’t want to diminish them, would you?

" Life is a garden, not a road. We enter and exit through the same gate. Wandering, where we go matters less than what we notice. "

" Racist stereotypes of the strong, superhuman black woman are operative myths in the minds of many white women, allowing them to ignore the extent to which black women are likely to be victimized in this society, and the role white women play in the maintenance and perpetuation of that victimization […] By projecting onto black women a mythical power and strength, white women both promote a false image of themselves as powerless, passive victims and deflect attention away from their aggressiveness, their power (however limited in a white supremacist, male dominated state), their willingness to dominate and control others. These unacknowledged aspects of the social status of many white women prevent them from transcending racism and limit the scope of their understanding of women’s overall social status in the United States.
