SWM Podcast 14: Whole Love

SWM PodcastLily MyersComment

In Communion: The Female Search for Love, bell hooks says: "Significantly, we know, having learned through much trial and error, that true love begins with self-love." Why is it so difficult to always live this truth-- why are we our own harshest critics? Especially in this anxious day and age, how do we feel that we're doing enough, that we are enough? Kate and I are in poopy moods and try to love ourselves anyway. Plus: concrete tools for continuing political action.

Much love and thanks to Mima Good for our gorgeous theme song!
