I've been reflecting on labels lately, and a story came to mind that I thought I'd share...
I had a friend who once replied to me with the words, “your white fragility”, and “your white saviourism”.
I could feel those words hit my ego.
Fortunately, there was enough of the secure part of me present to not immediately respond in defense. I had some feeling of love and understanding for my friend, and so I simply thanked him for sharing his perspective, and ended
the conversation there. I wasn’t feeling clear enough in the moment to do anything else.
