Like a Big Old Tree
Conflict sucks. It’s scary to have a different opinion, to feel alone and insecure, to worry about sounding stupid. I wonder how people like Ruth Bader Ginsburg managed. Ginsburg was in a perpetual state of contemplating dissenting opinions. At the end of the contemplation, she had to make her one true judgment. She had to be sure. I envy the confidence, clarity, and certainty that is required of people like Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
