Today, I'm in an all-white work space. Everyone is cheerful and I am wearing a mask because all I want to do is scream. They don't get it and they never will, and living that truth EVERY SINGLE DAY is exhausting.Please understand and show compassion. We don’t have to talk about it, and it would probably be better if you didn’t even mention it. But be aware that today, I’m sad, I’m frustrated and, as hard as it is for you to understand, I don’t feel safe and I don’t feel free.
This is our reality. We are tired.
