When was the last time you saw something in yourself that needed to change?
To live life in a way that is self-implicating is a difficult task. It requires listening. Listening to your community, your relationships, your family, the books you read, the shows you watch, and the films you see.
It means holding more loosely to the very idea of yourself; that you are already exactly who you want (and need) to be.
And it requires a response of diligent patience, firm gentleness, and graceful love from yourself and from others.
It can be a painful endeavor to see a true reflection of yourself because it will almost always come with the weight of imperfection, error, and the need to do the hard work of adjustment and transformation.
To not see anything is not to look. We could all use a little more self-implicating listening in our lives. If you’re willing to see, however, I believe this is an act of courage that can only make you more human.
