Be Your Own Mother

“I’ve learned how to mother myself from many sources, for which I am grateful. I’ve learned from the forgiving eyes of therapists how to listen to myself with less judgment. I’ve learned from the tender gestures of friends and lovers how to buy myself grapefruit juice, treasure my impish smile, and say “Oh honey” in the hard times.”
