Dear Damsels,

The theme for February is that hard-won, most precious of things, TRUST. The foundation of every relationship we make, the thing we take so easily for granted.

It’s personal. It’s business. It’s built up over time, earned through long late-night conversations, lost in one fell swoop. Delicate. Enduring.

We trust each other with thoughts not yet fully formed in our own minds. We trust each other not to change. We trust that the world will take care of itself. We learn not to give our trust away so easily.

To be given someone’s trust can feel daunting. To trust yourself can feel impossible.

But don’t lose faith, Damsels, because we want to hear from you. We know you won’t let us down.
