You are doing it one day, one word, one act at a time. You give your time and your space without regard for what you're given in return. You're helping a fellow human in need. You are living your hero's ideals.

Why she doesn't seem to believe that she deserves to be happy.
This is why the world needs more Lone Rangers.

Besides just being a friend, people in her situation often have an added hard time making friends. Either they come on too strong and desperate or they presume everything will go wrong so why even try. Having some stability and a healthy friend relationship with someone can give them a more even footing when meeting others, making it not go so bad.

I am getting a really, really bad feeling about that 'Karen'/let me speak to your manager haircut meme. Apparently, it's juuuuust veiled enough sexism that people get away with it. I'm not really seeing how, but a lot of people who would normally call out that kind of thing seem to think it's hilarious and just fine. (There's actually a whole lot of hypocrisy in those circles, which is a whole nother thing.)

But there is a very good chance that the Trump's only real challenger in 2020 is going to be a middle aged white woman with a practical haircut, you know.
