What contributed to the social media break:

I felt like I needed to create a little more stillness around me. There’s something about pregnancy, that willingness to take up more space in the world—that is liberating.

What makes her confident:

I always think of myself as I confident person.  But tI think I try to stay focused on the positive, and I try to stay true to myself. I try not to focus on being who other people want me to be. I don’t excel at that. I’m not really good at being who other people want me
to be. I’m good at being myself.
