RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I think that "original sin" is the recognition that no one is perfect. That gives us all room to accept our faults, make mistakes, forgive ourselves for the mistakes we make, and learn to make different choices. It's a journey not a destination.
As an opinionated, strong-willed woman I struggle even to this day with the fear that stating my position will make others not like me - this is from years of being told "be nice" and "oh now, come on, you don't really think/feel that way..." when, yes, I did think that and I do feel that way. Much better to tell my daughter "well done" than "good girl."
