I was thinking about an episode from my college days when my roommate explained that there were “two kinds of people.” This led me to think of all the labeling and namecalling we do, and how harmful it can be.
This is part of a post I wrote years ago that was saved to another website that I’m reclaiming and re-finishing. It’s a little reflection on how we can be thrown off by various “holes” in our lives and how we can climb back out of them.
We’ve all experienced loss recently, in one form or another. Even if you are among the more fortunate, making yourself feel guilty for feeling your feelings is, ultimately, unhelpful.
