Disturbing Thoughts #1
Y’all - you don’t mind if I call you y’all, do you? I’m not actually from the south, I just like the sound of it - yesterday, I told my mother that I can’t join her on the new political blog she’s been reading because the writer dehumanizes their opponents more than I’m willing to stand for. I’m a good chunk of years into my 40s, and it’s still hard to set boundaries with parents.
How to play along
Because safety is a core value for me, I am asking that comments in this space avoid all the ugly things: shame, blame, judgement. I am asking that disagreement and discussion be polite, respectful, generous, and open to vulnerability.
Because community is healthy behavior, I welcome you to comment, to share your thoughts and responses and discuss this with empathy with me and with each other.
