Maybe you’re a sensitive soul, like me. Or a deep thinking one.
For folks like us, telling the truth about our world, like how its tendencies towards extractive, consumptive, and irreverent behaviors can be disheartening, actually brings some relief.
Congruence between words and actions actually...
