It should be a norm for people in leadership positions to be in therapy. 1. leaders have disproportionate power to impact many lives, 2. everyone has blind spots and unconscious emotions 3. even if they think they have a healthy psyche there’s always room to be a better leader.
I believe in keeping a full archive of my writing no matter how idiotic I used to sound but wow I’ve just been frowning so much while migrating them from Medium.
for me trying to be alive is some version of trying to find some joy and aliveness while somehow bearing survivor’s guilt, complicity and hypocrisy in the midst of injustice, violence and oppression that’s always ongoing in this world.
It is always difficult to accept complicity and therefore, responsibility. It is just easier to believe everything is fated, happens for a reason, etc, than to believe we can have the power to shape reality, because to wield power is to bear the unbearable weight of being.
I dunno, I think a lot about: as long as we don’t clearly understand how everything affects everything and everything is a system, we’ll never have a just and healthy society.
