I recently had the opportunity to express some concerns I had, in a meeting of peers. I did some agonising before the meeting about how I could communicate my truth without offending or upsetting others. I think I did a good job, although afterwards I was very shaky, and did a bit more agonising about what I could have said better. No doubt some people think less of me. But one or two think more of me. And what do I think?
I was myself, as best as I could be.
I took that which is strange and frightened, or frightening, in to the room, and I sat in the circle and I spoke with the intention to make a difference and to create as little hurt as I could. It’s a work in progress!
