I absolutely hate talking politics. My news feed is packed with Trump haters and Trump lovers. Even though, I personally cannot stand Trump—I still think those with opposing views still have a right to voice their opinion.

“I’ll never be able to…,” “I didn’t grow up with money…” “I lived in an abusive house…” are my favorite starts to a long list of life excuses. At one time, I was comforted by creating excuses. Removing accountability for choices was much easier than owning responsibility towards the outcome. There was always a reason
“Sexual harassment and assault in the workplace are not just about Harvey Weinstein,” she wrote.” We must change things in general. We must do better for women everywhere.” After reading Alyssa Milano’s tweet that started a viral sh*tstorm (and helped launch the #Metoo movement,) I was amazed that many Americans considered this statement “rebellious” or
