Welcome to #Cammunity Chatter, an occasional roundup of some of the best and sassiest social media statements that speak.
First, let’s check in with Lily Ivy’s eternal wisdom that’s essentially the following: Be yourself, and your true friends (and fans) will follow.
On February 25th, Ivy retweeted one of her previous tweets, and we related with her feelings so much. We agree that it’s truly a blessing — a real blessing, not a #blessing — when people “stick around” to embrace all of you —not just the easy-to-digest you.
Many people in the spiritual community seem to unfollow me when they realize I'm a sexworker.
Many sexworkers have unfollowed me when they noticed how much I share my journey with Spirit.
Thank you to those who stick around and embrace the Divine integration of them both.

Next up is Becky LeSabre’s incredibly helpful retweet from The Cupcake Girls.
LeSabre knows that this industry can be tough sometimes, so, she retweeted the following tweet from The Cupcake Girls, an organization that provides the following help and resources:
“We provide confidential support to those involved in the sex industry, as well as those affected by domestic sex trafficking through holistic resources, case management, and after care. We provide nonjudgmental support to empower our clients in their pursuits through respect, resources, and relationships.” — The Cupcake Girls
We’re a non religious non-rescue nonprofit org focused on bringing free/low cost comprehensive resources to women working in the sex industry. We have everything from free therapy/counseling to professional sessions with SW friendly doctors, dentists, lawyers, financial advisors

We also want to thank Missy Martinez for reminding us that we all have days when our mental health is poor. This tweet and the tweet’s responses are making us feel a lot better!

And finally, it’s Ginger Banks’ tweet about communication.
I swear most of the problems in my life come from a lack of communication
— Ginger Banks (@gingerbanks1) March 1, 2018
Although this tweet was directed at her sister, Emma Banks, we think that most people lack basic communication skills — us included!
Thanks for the reminder that we allllll need work on communication, Ginger.
