Your periodic reminder that telling someone who struggles with depression and/or suicidal thoughts to reach out. The thing is, when you're hit, you want to be silent, reaching out is the last thing you want to do. If you want to help, don't be passive. Be active. They're already caring a burden that feels too heavy. Help where you can. If something seems off with someone, send a text, drop a line, write an email, slide into their DMs. Let them know you're there and they are not alone. Check in.
It's really hard to stare someone in the face when they are checking you out in a very crude way.
I'd really just rather ignore the fact that they are treating me like a snack they want to have and walk on my way.
...these are things most women think. We want to be better at doing the former but generally resort to the latter.
Me...I do it because confronting it is scary, you haven't a clue how that person will react to being "called out".
Privilege on its own is actually very harmless. With privilege comes power however and power can be dangerous. Privilege and luck don't demean the hard work you've done but it 100% determines where we start. What is the horizon you see from your privilege block?

I've been really wanting to contribute more to the Open Source community, because I rely on and use Open Source tools greatly but it's a bit overwhelming on where to start.
I just came across this resource called "First timers Only" https://www.firsttimersonly.com/ and itself is such a great resource but they list, Up For Grabs which is a tool to find #OpenSource projects that are actively seeking help https://up-for-grabs.net/#/
The person who tells me to be grateful for what I have is just blocking me from going for what I want.
Go for what you want, done let anyone convince you that you should settle with what you have.
Have gratitude for how far you’ve come, everything you’ve gained, all the friendships and relationships you’ve had but only stop when you feel like it.
Do not let anyone make you feel guilty for wanting growth.
