come to see those actions of mine that I do not like, those thoughts
or memories that indicate weakness or mean spirited tendencies are
aspects of my psyche.
I once thought of them as weaknesses or things that happen
occasionally but are not really me. But they are as much really me
as the thoughtful caring person that I prefer to dwell on. It is
more healthy to think of these traits as part of me than to think
that I am something different from them and that sometimes I "fall
off the wagon" and do something out of character. That is denial.
No, Karta is gone.
