It means to take full responsibility for ourselves to honor and be present to the constant stream of painful thoughts that want to block us from our good and our bad our moments. It means to be honest about what we are willing to look at and what we are not. We don’t have to do anything, just because others are “waking up” doesnt mean we have to. It means looking closely at ourselves and asking do I really want to heal? Do I really want to be doing this dance of prentending I do? It takes courage to be that honest, that clear. It’s owning ourselves, that’s healing. And no, you don’t have to.
