I just spent a little too long reading some stuff in the spiritual community watching women and people in my community, in the queer community, tearing each other down.
And I’m trying to find something to say that is unarguable.
So, what I will say is that I have tears in my eyes, my heart is beating in my chest quickly, and I feel sick.
I really wish we could find a way to listen to each other without tearing each other down.
There is a lot going on in the world and I get it we’re angry or scared or sad. I mean you feel what you need to feel but I’m scared and I’m angry and I’m sad.
And I’m trying to find another way. I’m trying to find another way without tearing people down.
I’m going to be honest with you I’ve been in reactivity around this for quite a while. I have removed myself from people who are tearing each other down, and that is something I need to do for me because I can’t be seeing it. I have a trauma background and this stuff is highly highly highly triggering for me. And I don’t see that in the conversation – the way that we may be triggering each other.
Because the world is in a kind of collective traumatic experience right now, and you know it would be wonderful if we could recognize that there’s more going on here.
That’s all I have to say. This is actually quite scary for me to share but I’m going to share it anyway. I’m sending you lots of love, and I really hope that this didn’t trigger you in any way because that’s never ever my intention.
