Addressing what holds us back is scary. Easier to say instead, “I’ll deal with that later. Now is not a good time.”
The truth is that we are dealing with it, right now, whether we choose to believe it or not. And so is everyone around us. The coping manifests in how we talk, act, and operate in the world. What holds us back infects everything.
It’s scary to open Pandora’s box. But it’s less scary when we realize that we’ve been in the box this whole time.
