A drop of sandalwood oil, a drop of rose oil, ten drops of glycerin in a warm cup of water – it read. Dip your finger tips, wait half an hour. She always has the best solution to dry hands, my mother. Care. Yet when inside it rains, and she claps her hands, it is […]
What’s there to not love about your favourite auntie?

“Dog whistling is a gaslighting abuse technique where an abuser can cause suffering to another without others being aware of what is occurring. When the abused tries to speak up against it – it is dismissed by others as they are not being hurt by the action.” One of the major dog-whistle tactics that some […]
