“…all I want is to help others feel a bit better about being.” -Brittany Howard

I suppose all I want is to help others feel a bit better about being. All I can offer are my own stories in hopes of not only being seen and understood, but also to learn to love my own self as if it were an act of resistance. Resisting that annoying voice that exists in all of our heads that says we aren’t good enough, talented enough, beautiful enough, thin enough, rich enough or successful enough. … It’s empowering to me to see someone be unapologetically themselves when they don’t fit within those images. That’s what I want for myself next and why I share with you…”

-Brittany Howard

You may know Brittany Howard from Alabama Shakes; what a wonder! I pulled this quote from her statement about the new solo album she’s got coming out next week, “Jaime” (source + full statement below).
