This stood out to me today. This could really have so many different meanings for some. I can list three right off the top of my head. Last night and this morning I did something out of character, I engaged in an online post. I engaged very respectfully in an education mode around my work to something around body image. I did not receive the same polite response back. So, I tried to again respectfully explain where I was coming from, no attack and not trying to 'put anyone in their place.' I merely was offering up conversation to think a bit differently so that we could change a narrative that being one way, or another was the only way to be. Again, it was not received well. I apologized with my humble reasonings for the post and left the conversation. I did receive some positive feedback from others through my page, but I had to remember that you cannot change anyone but yourself. I can continue to educate and help through my work but going outside the realm into an unprotected thread is suicide. How are you participating in a problem where it has come time to simply, let go? How can you honor your feelings in a situation without being harmed emotionally in the process?
