Learn to feel, not feed, your emotional distress
Feelings of discomfort, vulnerability, and frustration are natural when discussing race and racism. How you choose to relate to those feelings matter.
Too often, we fry in our emotions or turn away to block them out. In doing so, we effectively shut ourselves out of the conversation and prevent connection and healing from taking place.
Assuming our aim is to have a more satisfying and connecting outcome, we need a practice for comforting our own pain so that we can stay present to racial complexity with less activation and more stability and care.
