I invite you to read the quote below a few times, and sense which parts feel accurate to you and which parts jar...
The feel of the piece is compassionate, inviting us not to stay in shame about what
we tried to do before. However, I was aware of a reaction to the thought that we should turn away from our yesterdays. Each new day is a gift of newness, but we cannot help taking our whole selves into it. With loving awareness we can hold the idea that we did do our best with what we had, and also that our growth depends on understanding how those behaviours, thoughts, fears were elicited from us.
We can then begin to make choices about how we want to move on further through our lives.
