Recently some events in this community that you and I are part of, have raised some serious questions. Questions such as; How do we raise above conflict, above disagreement and unite. How do we invite open and honest dialogue with the aim of addressing whatever it is we feel is wrong? If we feel that we need to voice our concerns to the wider community, then how do we do it in a manner which doesn’t incite hatred? How do we honour our feelings and at the same time, how do we minimise these same feelings from clouding our judgement? How do we create safe spaces in which constructive dialogue can take place. Above all, how do we sit comfortably with what may be different to how we would prefer things to be?
Just a few thoughts that I have been reflecting on. I think self reflection is a wonderful thing.
