At some point in the last twenty-four hours I have experienced an awakening. It concerns the way I have treated another human. And I kind of want to slap myself. How is it that I didn't realize until now what I've been doing? I've been at this crossroads before! How many times must I do this? And the tiny, clear voice of reason responds, until you get it right. This revelation is almost entirely internal for me, a moment of light and learning. Now to incorporate this resetting of my moral compass into actions. Leaving this particular juncture behind me will be a relief, an unburdening now recognized. We often are our own worst witnesses.
