About last week, when I said I'm learning to sit in my discomfort, I should have been more specific. I'm learning to just listen to things like other people's anger and pain even though it makes me uncomfortable. I do it so they know they are heard. I was raised with the expectation that people, especially women should make people feel better by saying things like, "it'll be better" or offering "solutions" which can make the people speaking feel shut off and unheard. Just wanting to be clear, I'm not wearing a hair shirt or anything.
