Today's episode is a solo throwback of a Facebook Live I shared in July 2020.
I was going through my own unlearning of who I am as a Chinese American on many different levels - as a marginalized person, as a perpetuator of oppression and as an advocate/accomplice/ally.
It is really fascinating to listen to myself from almost two years ago and to listen to myself now. To see how the practice of the many things I am doing have created the version of me now who has a better knowing of myself and who I want to be in the world.
Practice doesn't make perfect - it makes normal. Don't let the process intimidate you.
This Live is also what sparked my conversation with next week's guest. Stay tuned!
