This week has been a good week. I had invited Mannaz to be with me this week and be the focus of the podcast. I have been challenged to look at my relationships and some have deeply rooted behaviors going back more than a decade. One in particular surfaced to be looked at more deeply.
My friend and I have been friends for over a decade now. We were very close in the beginning and like life sometimes does, we were separated by distance and time. We now live close to each other and see each other from time to time.
When we became friends I was, I'll admit, more judgemental and had become a little jealous. This friend was so free, so open and I judged that. Of course like most people, I believe, that was my mind's reaction to what my body wanted. I was chained and held captive by old stories about what was right and wrong, appropriate and not.
The real, wild world isn't full of neat little boxes or black and white. It's complicated and has a stunning color palette, not always black and white.
