This frame makes the pressure to "not be a burden" so toxic. We're all taught to think people won't like us if we're needy, so we don't admit when we're hurting. But if we don't give the people in our lives the ability to care for us, we block those relationships from deepening.

Buttigieg responding to a question about why his web site is devoid of policy plans by saying Democrats shouldn't drown voters in the minutia of policy is ridiculous. It's okay to say it's coming soon. It's ludicrous to dismiss the value of policy proposals.
