The first was a courageous post.
The second was even more courageous, and I’d like to echo it here, for my readers:
For my readers:
When I say too much,
When I don’t say enough,
When I write out of anger,
When I write without feeling,
When I get it right (and I know it),
When I get it wrong (and I don’t),
When my motives become a tangled mix of evil and good and I can’t for the life of me sort them all out.
I wish you knew how often I second-guess myself, how aware I am of my own shortcomings, how grateful I am for your attention and input, how in-over-my-head I feel sometimes, how desperately I want to do right by you.
I stand by the message of yesterday’s post–[fill in your least favorite post by Tony here]–but I owe it to you to tackle big topics like this with as much care, precision, and grace as possible. So if I failed in that way, I’m sorry.
Be patient with me.
I’m figuring this out as I go.
Thank you for taking the journey with me.
