The thing about blindspots

Is we’re blind to them.

That in order to see them, we need support. Something that provides light to the area we cannot see. A metaphorical torch, if you will.

This might come from a friend, partner or coach in the way of feedback, questions or a great resource.

The other thing about blindspots is when we finally see them they can feel painfully and embarrassingly obvious.

Pema Chödrön once wrote:

As we become more mindful it can come as a shock to realise how blind we’ve been to the ways in which we cause harm to ourselves and others.

With that in mind, it’s worth committing to seeking them out.

Consider: Who’s helping you find yours? Once found, what can you learn from them?
