If you haven’t already discovered Rupi Kaur, author of this quote, I’d like to introduce you.
Rupi is a 24-year old poet and artist from Canada who for me stands out as a woman speaking authentically about many tough themes – rape, violence, alcoholism, and trauma.
She has garnered over 1.4 million followers on Instagram for her work that deals with heartbreak, abuse, love and femininity.
I was so moved by this video as she speaks about why she does what she does, and how she conquered Instagram with a photograph that challenged taboos around women’s bodies, she is teaching everyone how to love themselves as the whole, beautiful, flawed and vulnerable human beings we are.
I encourage you to watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mnyl4GtW4Gs
May we all have the courage and creativity to speak our own truth in our own way authentically.
With great warmth
