“Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening[…]Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.” — Alice Walker
beware of men who think sensitivity and weakness are the same thing. they are messed up and they will mess YOU up with their inability to be intimate and the over-importance they give to violence & power.
I remember my girls and I having a whole argument with men because they said that women can’t fight on the frontlines because they have sensitivity in them that will keep them from being “heartless” like men are at war and it will make them second-guess themselves and get them killed.
I never was so shocked and appalled in my life.
