things I am done with. #metoo [part five]

[This is part five in a series of blogs which were written to help me make sense of the whirlwind of emotions I’m feeling with this #metoo movement.  If you’re going to read one, please read them all because this is a complicated and nuanced life we’re living and it deserves more than 1000 words.  Part one is here, part two is here,  part three is here, and part four here. ]

I’ve lost tolerance for the tiny, every day things we do that contribute to a #metoo world.  They grate on my soul now, like sandpaper.

And by we – I mean we. Christians. The Church. Me. And my friends.

When people ask me what my Masters Degree is in I just say Mental Health.  It’s easier than explaining the full story.  Mental Health: Cultural and Global Perspectives in Mental Health Care is kind of a mouthful.

I think so much of the chaotic backlash we’re seeing around the #metoo movement is because we are obsessed with syncing up the external events and internal experiences.

It’s an unpleasant side effect of this shit show we’re living in. It’s happening every time another woman speaks up, another name is in the media, another person I love shares a story that they’ve never told me before.  Every time I feel this unpleasant side effect that has me longing to look away: nausea.
