If you read 50 pages a day, that’s 350 pages a week. It’s roughly the equivalent of two books. Multiply that times 52 weeks in a year, and you’ve read 100 books. How you read those 50 pages is really up to you. You can spend an hour reading. Or you can schedule 5 10 minute sessions a day and read 10 pages during that time.
In our increasingly isolated society, I am a friendly person. I smile at strangers on the street with the hope that I might give them a moment of connection. I look people in the eyes when I’m speaking with them. I take advantage of opportunities to joke or be self-deprecating because I like people to feel comfortable around me. I ask questions–real questions–because I’m genuinely interested, and I actually listen to the answers because I actually care. I’ve dedicated my entire life to understanding the human condition, and offering support and connection, because I want to reduce people’s suffering.
The perception that the extroverted, “friendly” woman seeks to seduce perpetuates rape culture, slut-shaming, and disconnection, and pressures women to be highly selective in their kindness (i.e. better be “bitchy” to be safe!).
