You are so gentle and kind - thank you. I wish I could find a voice as kind inside myself, but always there's this criticizing, harsh voice that brings me back to reality. You know, my grandfather was a missionary in Africa at the turn of the century, and although I never met him, I feel sure that often it's his voice of condemnation and judgement that I hear inside me. I wonder where he got it from. And if it will ever be possible to stop passing this inheritance from generation to generation. I think I have done my share too - victim and perpetrator, it's a heavy burden to carry.
It sounds as if you have managed to find a way through, to find some kind of peace within yourself. I am so glad for you, Jai. I think you deserve it.
