I resolve

I resolve to be sincere, and not afraid to be sincere. Somehow we’ve inherited a culture that looks down on sincerity, that sneers at it and distrusts it. Enough of that.

I resolve to listen to something that makes me uncomfortable.

I resolve to not detach from those close to me, and not to hide one part of myself from another part of my life.

I resolve to admit when I’m wrong.

I resolve not to win.

And I resolve to come to terms with my anger: not to hide or suppress it, not to blindly express it, but to try and recognize the 99% of the time when it’s blinding me to the truth and the 1% when it’s capable of motivating change.
