Shocking, and just not good enough. A person needs to be able to access their own house! There definitely needs to be more community awareness about disability.
It's a brave choice to try something new.
Missy was always so talented. I remember all the media scrutiny about her sexuality, it's a shame that she had to go through this experience. It's hard enough to be young and in the spotlight and really it's a bit predatory to try and pressure someone that young to come out publicly.
Oh my gosh, I love Leigh's comment about the bond between toddlers and bus drivers and fireman! So beautiful.
His behaviour is not ok. There is nothing ok about any of this. You did not do anything wrong.
That magistrate sounds too burned out to do the job anymore. It's really not acceptable for the legal system to blatantly re-traumatize women
I think people put far too much pressure on themselves about a wedding. I really struggle to relate to this article, I just don't understand the mindset.
What a beautiful and unspeakably harrowing story. I am so glad I read this today.
The baggy jeans thing is weird, it just seems universally unflattering.
It's so embarrassing that she publicly displays her lack of self awareness and lack of emotional intelligence. I think most people watching that video would be pretty disgusted.
We did so many liturgical dances at my primary school, many of them
I love the bathroom! Such a great location to live central to everything.
Hang in there! I hope the rest of your quarantine goes smoothly. Thanks for doing your part.
I love her attitude.
I love this space, it looks so welcoming. I love seeing all of your books!
Beautiful! I love your style.
I agree that it is important to keep things in perspective. However, I think the article is right about this experience being one of grief. Grief can arise with any change - big or small. Sometimes it is hardest to grieve the 'small' losses because this sort of grief is not really socially sanctioned or supported, and people feel silly for being so effected. However, if people stuff the grief down and ignore it, these feelings tend to end up being acted out in far more maladaptive ways, as we have seen with fisticuffs at Woolworths.
I there is space for both resolute stoicism and grief during this experience, and perhaps we may all find ourselves moving back and forth between the two.
Oh dear, none of us enjoy being cooped up inside but this person isn't exactly rising to the occasion. I wonder if in years to come she will look back on this and be embarrassed that she was on national TV griping about fresh air. Her complaints comes across as tone deaf when other people's lives have been turned upside down, and sadly, some are dying. Maybe the family needs to watch some footage of the scenes in Spain and Italy in order to keep their own plight in perspective. Or perhaps have a chat on the internet to some people who remain isolated indefinitely due to disabilities or health conditions.
