Just because

July 22, 2021

You’re adopting the patriarchal, colonialist mindset when you ignore your heart’s wilderness, or when you feel that you have the right to shape someone to your will; when you know what’s best, when you ignore or minimise or pander to power; when you forget yourself in the pursuit of external values, or worse – when you ask this of someone else.

Text reads:
Just because you don’t understand what someone’s doing – doesn’t mean they’re wrong. Just because you can’t see the truth of their heart – doesn’t mean it’s false.
