A Sunday thought: No shame on you

In the land of human beings, beware those who shame you for your failings, who urge greater fidelity to a system to cure what ails you rather than greater trust in yourself.

Beware those who put institutions ahead of persons, and whose idealism tempts you to pretend away your problems and distresses in favor of a sparkling seductive image.

There’s no inoculation against life. Be as genuine as you can, try with the resources you have, open your mind to new solutions, and trust that you know what’s best for you and your family more than anyone else does.

Take your time, be wary of unsolicited advice, and hold fast to your commitment to peace and well-being over ideology.

Sending love across the miles, in case you feel alone in your choices and dilemmas.
