[Dutch Lock Down Day Three Hundred Thirty One]
I had a massive misunderstanding with a close friend.
Around being nonbinary.
Around using the they / them pronouns.
And we didn’t listen to one another for days.
And then we finally did.
But first the news:
- A pandemic, an environmental problem and a creative solution
- Seven-day rolling infection rate rises for fourth consecutive day; number of deaths up by 11 percent
- Cabinet passes 200 million euros support package for mental wellbeing
We said things we both regret.
We told the truth.
We pushed back.
We lashed out.
And then we listened.
And now we’re healing.
