I love this idea!


I think the last time I stood up for myself was yesterday, when my mum abruptly started complaining about many of the Matildas being queer. Honestly I think I handled the situation in an unhealthy way for myself, because I spent an hour arguing with her as the discussion veered towards religion, and it was pretty stressful.


I'm proud of myself for being open about how I disagree with her, but it's annoying that she'll probably never change her mind, and in fact goes as far to say that she loves me but I should never even imagine her supporting the "wrong" things I do. This happens often enough that I don't need to do much to support myself due to being desensitised, besides allowing myself to relax afterwards. I also take comfort in the fact that I have loving friends and an accepting environment at uni.
