Feels Zine | Issue 15 | Falling Out Of alove
There is a complicated middle between love and love lost — the process we go through and emotions we feel as we fall out of love. How do we navigate the messiness of changing feelings in a world that villainizes the one doing the leaving? How do we express ourselves about romantic partners, family, friends, places, and identities that are no longer serving us? How does it feel when we finally say goodbye? In Issue 15, we explore the ambivalence, the hurt, the strength, and the transformation that comes with falling out of love.

Feels is, well, a publication about feelings. It is a place to explore, to share, and to be honest. Having an open dialogue about what’s going on inside of us can foster meaningful connection and make us feel less alone, especially in the social-media era that asks us to curate and polish our lives and feelings before sharing them — if we share them at all. Feels believes there are no good or bad feelings — the value comes from how we relate to them, how we experience them, and what we learn from them.
Feels also believes in inclusion and recognizes that certain voices have been given the lion’s share of the spotlight throughout history. Our pages are for everyone, and we do not accept pieces that further marginalize. We are a feminist, sex-positive, 2SLGBTQ*, anti-racist, anti-colonial publication.
