SUNDAY READING/WATCHING

“Hot or Not” Is No Way to Pick a Coach

Let’s call it the Kardashian Effect: you can’t help but look. We’re in the age of “made-you-look” marketing, where the latest nude celeb post, vacation bikini pic, nip slip, and hottie bulking up for a superhero role gets you to look… and to click. We are meant to instantly judge these body images and take appropriate action, whether that’s clicking, “liking,” or spewing a string of emojis. Self-promotion via superficial body imagery is at an all-time high.

Tough Girls

They thought we were tough because we didn’t appear to feel anything.messyouup

But the opposite was true.

We felt everything. We felt everything so deeply, so fully, so painfully that sometimes we took shallow breaths, little sips, so no one could hear us. So we could keep breathing. So we could go on.
