Ep #122 — Don’t make me look!

When someone points out one of my faults, I very often find it hard – at first – to accept the gift of awareness. OK. Let’s be real. I don’t like it when folk point out my faults. There’s part of me that wishes I had noticed and addressed them before anyone else even noticed.

It’s even worse when folk point out a fault that I have had for some time that is still having an impact on those around me.

“The real fault is to have faults and not to amend them.”
— Confucius

And that is what I believe is happening in our culture right now … the wake of our impact is centuries long and the current upheaval is making the longevity of those systemic faults very clear. Are we — individually and societally — willing to live with the discomfort of owning those faults long enough to actually amend them?

And, more personally, where else am I living with faults without amending them?
