It was wonderful to see the expansion of your thoughts in the article after our discussion and earth shaking workshop. I hope you enjoyed it.
I am not sure if you read these comments, but know I am happy that you are adding to the confidence in yourself and other women by letting these things out in the open, and challenging assertions that as women we are simply vessels for life that is not our own. Unbelievable that this reality is still alive and well among us. I was so sorry to hear of the struggle its given you, I strongly relate to your understanding of yourself as capable of many things other than the physical act of caregiving, and to the passion and purpose that drives those aspirations as a human being. I grieve with you for your losses. I feel able to support my women friends in a way that others find difficult, to let them feel capable and equal in their own power in a way that seems male, but in fact is not, and is so only in today's negatively hierarchical society. Your article was exemplary of this kind of factual striving and openness that we as women must* allow each other in order to grow. You should know and be reminded that I support your aspirations and "core pole" in a nonjudgemental and open manner. ;) I've written to you and Ale to thank you and I hope you receive a care package soon.
So Much Love to You fellow striver-!
Stay in touch for support.
