Delightfully enlightening and lightly cerebral.

I love the way SH unravels the entire concept of gruges from her own perspective, which is not “new age PC” but authentic and human. She then, in an effortlessly balanced way, addresses the POVs from which someone may look at SH’s analysis of her own grudge from their own, authentic and human perspective. SH does not try to justify her own actions and opinions as opposed to the unreasonable actions of others. There is no promotion divisiveness or appeal to self-righteousness. The goal seems to be almost a demonstration of an analytical process that can be applied to other much maligned “feelings”. Instead of allowing society’s norms to dictate how one should react to a slight, one is empowered to stay with the feeling and tune into its resonance with oneself. The fragmentation of disappointment and/or shame is sutured through the warming glow of self-trust and confidence that healthy boundaries. The types of boundaries that give us form, but are never dense enough to make us uncomfortably rigid or obscure the beauty of human interaction on all levels. Incredibly enjoyable podcast, now I shall go buy the book!
