100 Words: Christmas Letter Cover-Up

christmas letter cover up
Pretending difficult things aren’t happening is a recipe for catastrophe.

Just glance at the headlines and see that we ignore shadows at our peril.

And yet it is the cultural norm to hide the painful stuff. Pretend all is shiny and happy and successful.

What would happen if we really showed up and told the whole truth about our experience. What if we said, I love my university (city/company/community/family/relationship) and some very very bad things are happening there.

What if we stayed both positive and real?

I’ve noticed it creates real connection and encourages others to do the same.

Experiment!
