My Self-Sacrifice

I am strangely fascinated, and easily seduced, by far-left politics. Yet, I have consciously chosen to detach from my most extreme political views for the good of our community, our nation, and our world. This doesn’t mean that I automatically adopt the opposite viewpoint, most certainly not! Rather, I am becoming more open so that I can develop a deeper understanding of political complexities.

I miss those ideas and I mourn for them; they have been an important part of my conscience and experience throughout my life. It feels as though a part of me – and one of my favorite parts – has died. I am working on shifting my thinking to what I have to gain, and the potential collective gain, from what I might be losing.
