It’s always my hope that even if you have a different story that you can hear parts of yourself in the conversations had here, and that you can walk away with tools on how to navigate the not-often-spoken about topics that may be holding you back from living in the present. My mission is to offer you tools, insights and stories to help you on your journey.
But one of those journey’s I have neglected to address – which now seems glaringly obvious – is that of racism.
I overlooked this experience most likely because of my privilege as a white person. I am waking up to my role as the “good white liberal”. No one wants to be thought of as racist, but by not speaking up about this topic – is in fact condoning it. So by not speaking about systemic racism I was playing a role in contributing to it.
