Hello Gene, I appreciate your insight about aversion- something I think we all struggle with. I’m going to practice awareness of my own aversions today and notice how it impacts my thoughts and feelings.
I do try to remember to give myself a break and be kind because I am my own worst enemy and strongest critic; i thus must try to support myself and be kind. I am not great at letting go of things and am getting better at not obsessing. Lots of work to do there.
My only aversion towards people is those who abuse power and torture and kill animals and the planet. It is true I am critical-something to work on. Our species is not my favorite.
