Was just re-reading a July blog post, The Things That Shape Us, by the remarkable Nancy Aronie, who touched my life & shifted my self image at a 2016 Rowe workshop. woman who did more than she will ever know to shape my self image.
Two core things Nancy taught me: good writing requires a safe place & it should always come from the heart.
My reality is that I lost any sense of emotional safety around my sister-in-law, Kerry, twenty years ago. My reality is that from everything she has said or written, I assume that Kerry does not feel safe anywhere near me & has not, as far as I know, for 40+ years.
I learned from John to know what I want & to go for it, and to know what causes harm & to avoid it. So, coming from my heart, while we appreciate Mike’s invitation to breakfast tomorrow, we will politely decline.
