I’ve spent the last 34 years using the “but I’m a good person” defense or silently avoiding confrontation. Now I can see that I’ve been using good intentions as a crutch to uphold systemic racism and white privilege.
I love the concept of karma. I feel that it captures the blips of the tiniest micro-actions as well as the huge impacts of major decisions. It means that there is always a chance to take the high road and that all you need to do is listen to your sense of right and wrong.
