sense of humor. my sense of humor is right on par with a middle schooler’s. i’m the girl who takes inappropriate jokes too far because she has no filter and no comfort gauge. if it’s funny, i’ll say it, even if it makes those around me squirm. this can get me into trouble sometimes, but i still wouldn’t change it if i could. empathy.

your behind-the-scenes footage.
Though I’ve already written about comparing ourselves to other people and how dangerous it can be, I’ve gotten a lot of emails/Facebook messages about this topic recently, so I believe it’s worth revisiting. A few months ago, a very dear friend of mine was “banned” (for lack of a better word) from Facebook by her husband. He changed her password so that she could only respond to messages, wall...

It sets them up for dieting at age 5 and foundation at age 11 and boob jobs at 17 and Botox at 23. As our cultural imperative for girls to be hot 24/7 has become the new normal, American women have become increasingly unhappy. What’s missing? A life of meaning, a...
