Dear Jeanette,

I loved your article. Ah yes, learning how to treat yourself as a friend, not a critic, nor an enemy, but as someone you’d treat with respect they have earned. That’s a damn hard job, for so many women. Why is it so difficult to accept a compliment? I think we should practice doing more of that. To that end —

You write really well. It’s a pleasure to read your writings. I look forward to reading more, thank you so much for sharing it! 😁
