Plus, two reader comments:
Julia says Cosmetic uniform Michelle Zauner: ‘I remember reading Michelle Zauner’Crying in H March‘essay in the New Yorker in August 2018 and I love it so much, that I printed it out. I still read it occasionally. Years ago when I first moved, I went to grocery stores in Eastern Europe whenever I missed my family. I would peruse the passages of pickled vegetables and yews and idle listen to women talk about anything in particular in the way Russians and Ukrainians do. I would feel like I was in my aunt’s room. “
Says K on making peace with my quarantine body: I felt a huge amount of sadness because of my weight gain, as if I had lost my “true self”. I got married this summer with the lowest weight since high school and that’s when I felt so confident. But as my friend’s mom would say, in marriage I very quickly became ‘fat and happy’. But then my sweet friend’s mom told me, ‘Honey, I think you’ve been under stress your whole life. You finally relaxed and let go of your body be. Buy new clothes and feel nice. Because you are loved. ‘It was the kindest thing. And I’m going. Thanks, Kim, for inspiring me to start with a bikini. “
