I am reading The handmaids tale which is a book set in a disastrous environment which led many women to become infertile, so only a small handful of women are able to reproduce. The fertile women are referred to as “handmaids” who are “owned” and raped in order to have children.
“You can’t help what you feel, but you can help how you behave”
― The Handmaid’s Tale
I like this quote because controlling how we feel is difficult, but controlling what we do is easy.
