Yes this. Yes I do
I like stories where women save themselves
As Elizabeth Gilbert said: “When you are waiting to be saved, after all,
you see everyone who crosses your path as a potential rescuer
This is the most dangerous worldview
that could possibly exist for a woman
A woman who is waiting to be saved
will run into the arms of ANYONE, hide behind ANYONE,
give her up power to ANYONE
A drowning woman (or a woman who perceives herself to be drowning)
will climb up into any lifeboat —
no matter how sketchy and dangerous that boat may be
And what happens next can often turn very quickly
from a fairy tale to a horror story

We must learn to save ourselves
We must learn to build our own lifeboats,
or to swim for shore
Teach your daughters well, Dear Ones
Teach them how to save themselves.”
Yes please do that
