There’s a constant battle between the “inner asshole” and the “inner enabler” & neither can win! We must learn to find balance and grace for ourselves when we fuck up or behave in a way that we’re not proud of...however, we can’t give ourselves so much rope that we don’t identify and address the places we may have gone wrong. This is learning that will take you a lifetime.
