Your upbringing wasn’t perfect. Nobody’s was. Parents live and teach according to their own background and awareness. When you compassionately acknowledge the (mild to extreme) dysfunction that comprised aspects of your early life and realize that it’s nobody’s fault, you’re on the path to healing. Regret and blame¬†prevent you from growing¬†through that conditioning. Any place you feel stuck is likely an opportunity to acknowledge a wound and work through it. It’s the sand in the oyster that creates the pearl. Using your grist enables you to become…

A gem.
