"The spell was broken. My uncle learned to laugh, and I learned to cry. The secret garden is always open now. Open, and awake, and alive. If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden." Mary Lennox
"I think it’s important to understand why even “confident” women can be brought low by a consciously cruel or accidentally insensitive comment about her body or her weight. I want these things to not be so freaking important to women’s self-worth all of the time. I want to remove the ability of individuals to use “Have you gained weight?” or “Why are you so confident?” as weapons against people who are just trying to be themselves, to do the things that are meaningful to them. And I want women to be able to live true to themselves without wasting a single moment on wondering if their thighs or their upper arms or their face is good enough for them to be allowed to exist in the world without being mocked or attacked."
