Every time someone doesn’t display the wisdom and self-control that would support their claims of authority or moral superiority, that’s trouble. Any such claim based on gender, economic status, ethnicity, or religion is false.
It is a thin line, not easy to walk, between self-consciousness and stubbornness, between healthy self-esteem and being stiff-necked.
But sometimes, understanding and recognition come from unexpected directions and at unforeseen moments. So heads up, you are not alone.
