This isn’t another softball, Thanksgiving-related blog about gratitude, but a step-by-step guide to help people who have committed sexual harassment regain their humanity and their life, and bring some compassion to people that have suffered as a result of their actions. If you have harassed someone, your number is up.
Between the #MeToo movement and the daily breaking news stories of high-profile celebrities and politicians accused of offensive acts, our society has crossed a threshold. People are disclosing experiences of sexual harassment with increasing frequency, and the more people that speak out, the safer everyone will feel to report their individual ordeals. Shame, intimidation, and fear are no longer keeping people silent, so the truth is coming for you. However, this reckoning may not have to ruin your life. If you have a conscience, an ability to take responsibility, and a willingness to generate compassion for the person(s) you have wronged, I would be honored to illuminate your path to redemption.
