Being Good to Ourselves
This should be easy and natural. But for Americans in the 21st Century – it is nearly impossible. And has been for over a hundred years.
You may say “Prove it! ” But I am not going to bite on that bait. If you cannot see that on your own, without my prompting you – you will never see it.
I will proceed as though, you think there might be some truth in my assertion – and want to check it out. Fair enough. You can see something is wrong – but you don’t know exactly what it is.
Believe me, you know a lot.
- You have a fuzzy feeling that something is wrong.
- But you have no idea where to go from there.
Compare yourself to someone who knows everything – and is certain that the present situation needs no fixing – and is certain that things are in such bad shape, that the end is near. Both.
Which would you rather be?
If you prefer being imperfect – you prefer being human – and are capable of liking (or even loving) your imperfect self.
And others like you.
