People are so afraid of women who aren’t looking for approval

I tend to be more afraid of the opposite. It fills me with a sense of helplessness - especially if I have a daughter one day.

I’m not 100% sure what you mean by this Beau, and I can’t send…

Ha-ha…we’re totally talking about the exact same thing. I think we’re just looking at it from different angles. Hooray for a coming together of consciousness!

Yo SR :) for sure, I was hoping you’d catch my drift but it was a tad tricky to decipher without giving more of a context. I think we’re on the same save length - insofar that seeking the approval of others, in my mind, holds no inherent ‘evil’ by any means. I agree - we totally need it! The ways and channels in which we (women and men alike) choose to seek this validation, however, is something I legitimately worry about (as you’ve mentioned). Conforming to the status quo often means denying one’s own being and therefore vetoing the marvellous individuality of oneself.

A-Frame Residence, New York, USA by Bromley Caldari Architects | via

This striking looking A-Frame Residence is the result of an architecture conversion delivered by New York City-based studio Bromley Caldari Architects. The designers completely renovated the interiors of a 1960s beach home on Fire Island, turning it into a sleek hideout. With a spiral staircase splitting down the middle, four dark and cramped bedrooms, a leaky roof, and a cracked pile foundation, the original building required serious interventions.

By adding a new staircase, the layout was positively transformed and functionality took over he entire abode: “On the main level, a double-height living/dining room stretches the length of the window-clad north façade. The open kitchen and house utilities run along the south side. The master bedroom suite features full-height glass sliding doors that take advantage of the view. Although the doors stay mostly open, when guests are present and privacy is required, the sliding glass doors fog up at the flick of a switch.”
