I see this idea becoming more widespread, and every time I hear it my concern deepens. Can we really not learn to love each other *because* of our differences, rather than *in spite* of them?
Do you say yes to everything because you don't know how to say no? Do you say yes even when you don't have the time or resources to actually commit to what you are saying yes to? Do you say yes because you don't want to hurt anyone's feelings or risk upsetting them?
Maybe you're not a "yes" person. But do you say no to everything? Do you know you can't commit your time and resources to all that is asked of you, but instead of choosing you instead say no because you feel like this is the only way to be fair?
I've found myself thinking about labels lately, both the labels we put on ourselves and the labels others put on us. I wasn't sure whether or not I should blog about it, because some of these ideas seem so jarring and opposing to what I usually read in soul care spaces.
I've tried to write a few different blog posts, but then I have trouble finishing them. And then I worry if I'm diving in too deep and if these topics are even what I should be writing about.
You see? Even more overthinking.
