A Void Dance


Christopher GermerWe instinctively avoid unpleasantness,

often without our awareness.

When we touch something unlovely in ourselves—

fear, anger, jealousy, shame, disgust—

we tend to withdraw emotionally

and direct our attention elsewhere.

But denying how we feel,

or projecting our fears and faults onto others,

only drives a wedge between us

and the people we yearn to be close to.
