Thank you, Daisy.

I was thinking, as I left today, that there was probably a wider applicability to what happened today. Not that there isn't value to challenging our irrational beliefs about ourselves. But sometimes, no matter how much we try to reason with ourselves, and no matter how much we try to be good, there is a part of us that feels shame and guilt about all the things that only we know about ourselves. Maybe the answer isn't to try to talk ourselves out of our beliefs but to go through the steps to forgive ourselves for all the areas where we fall short of who we think we should be, no matter how very human falling short may be. It doesn't hurt to feel forgiven either.

It made me think briefly how powerful a tool interdiction must have been in the middle ages.

But maybe that's just me who feels that way.
