A voice from the dark: why talking taboos makes for a better society
Angela Brightwell

I’d bargain to say that most people are terrified of talking about anything taboo. Why? The myriad of reasons are endless. For me, I think the taboo opens up a whole new world in which we get to know ourselves better, as well as others. Communication is vital.

Thank you for sharing your story and such a deep level of vulnerability. We must stop being afraid of offending someone. We cannot make all people happy. It’s impossible. Speak your truth.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
