Taking a moment to be grateful for my feminist community

Confession: As a Type A personality, and a young Latina feminist, I have a tendency to hold myself to very high standards. I assume that I should know everything, and be able to accomplish all tasks set to me, without help, sleep, or tears. I feel like by now, I should have figured out my identity years ago, and be a perfect activist who uses all the right inclusive terms and never offends anyone.
