a thank you card to anyone who has ever told me when I was wrong

I want to be ready to try to change someone’s mind when I hear dangerous/problematic ideas being spread, or see dangerous/problematic actions being taken; I want to learn how to better do these things. I also want to work on my own response to being confronted in this way, and to develop my humility and my ability to listen fully, to calm down my defensive reactions, when I am told that I have done something wrong. Realistically, I am going to fuck up over and over and over. I will work on myself. I won’t place the responsibility on the people who I hurt to keep me in check. But if you do have the energy, and feel like engaging, I will work so hard to listen deeply.
