Nicole, you are an amazing writer. The thought that you have put into this blog speaks a lot about the time and effort you've put in understanding yourself. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experience with me.

Sending you loads of ❀️ and 🍣

a powerful piece Nicole! You just gained a new subscriber. In terms of your last discussion point 'have the courage to be misunderstood', that reminds me of a book that I really like called the courage to be disliked. I'd recommend it if you have not read it yet

Love the notion of having faith in your own curiosity and wonder as opposed to your own knowledge - it’s a good reminder :)

I had no idea who Lucille Clifton was. I love discovering new writers through other writers. Once again, thank you for sharing
