Healing and evolution come with confrontation
I have made mistakes. Said horrible things to others. Been mean.
I have stood on a platform of righteousness without even beginning to understand the perspective and experience of those I disdainfully look down upon.
Growing up is messy.
To reconcile our mistakes and expressions of harm or harsh criticism to others, we must look our actions squarely in the eye.
Healing and evolution come with confrontation.
Forgiveness happens after confronting our actions.
Shame is the emotion that provides the path and the key. Follow the shame trail in our lives to reconcile and complete our past.
These steps apply to individuals and the collective.
Once we have faced our actions in full, we must remember them; when we do not, they will return.
