Close Haul

It’s unwise to underestimate the discomfort, antipathy, and even hatred, that can be engendered by openly expressing oneself honestly, sincerely, and with as much compassion and intelligence as one can muster.
Some folks won’t like it.
Won’t like it at all.
It’s worth reckoning this antipathy into one’s navigational intentions, like factoring in a strong wind blowing away from one’s destination.
It’s worth designing one’s vessel, and crafting the rigging, for a very long close haul.
