Be Kind To Your Past

My friend and fellow MHGS alum Joshua Longbrake shares some powerful thoughts on reading your past writing.” Not just reading your past writing, but reading your past behavior.

After having a conversation just yesterday in which I described a bunch of my old record reviews as “awful,” I think need some of this medicine.


“In life, you’re given three options (how generous of life):

1. Never write down a single word

2. Write things down, see goodness

3. Write things down, feel shame

These options are not exclusive to each other.”
