I want to know your truth. The truth. As fluid as it is.
I feel so tired. Tired and overwhelmed.
I don’t have the energy right now to read all the things, to see the validity in all the words. I can’t even. I am so tired.
I am just me. I am not perfect. I do not have all the answers.
I am just trying to figure it all out. As I go.
I am pretty sure that is ok. I am sure that is all any of us are doing.
I have many lessons to learn. So many.
I do not have your history and the lessons it has imparted on you.
We have had different paths. What a wonderful thing. Teach me, show me.
Tell me all about the things in your head, show me all the lessons you have had along your journey, I want to feel and to see.
I don’t profess to know it all. The only thing I know for sure, is my own lived experience. That is the only thing I can speak on with absolute truth.
But, even our memories are fluid, even our memories are tainted with our emotions and current perspective.
It is all constantly moving.
There is no absolute truth.
And if there was I suspect it will be somewhere suspended in between.
I want to learn, I want to see, I want to understand, most of all I want to feel.
Give me your context, tell me all the things.
Share your knowledge and your history and your stories with me.
Please don’t chastise me for not knowing, or not understanding, or not using the correct grammar or not understanding that reference or not having read that book or not seeing the world through your eyes.
I have not had your history, share it with me. Show me your world.
I am imperfect. I am not a trailblazer or fence sitter or a bandwagon jumper.
I am just me. Trying to make sense of this crazy world. I am fallible and broken. I most certainly will make mistakes and say the wrong thing or take the right thing the wrong way. I am human. I am a beautifully flawed, broken human.
I want to know your truth, I want to hear you story. Most of all I want to feel. To feel your pain and your frustration and your sorrow, to feel your joy and your heart.
Share your knowledge with me, share your story with me.
I see you. See me.
