When I attend enough to becoming upwardly mobile myself, I often find myself looking down on the men around me now.
I don’t want to look down on anyone. These are (mainly) good guys. These are friends.
So this a learning opportunity, a growth opportunity.
It appears to be a common problem for folk who seek upward mobility.
I find this morning that perhaps I can sublimate or incinerate those feelings as they come on, burning up emotional filth to release light and admiration for guys who, after all, are doing the best they can with the resources they’ve got, and whose motivations no one can gainsay.
