Acknowledge privilege without guilt

Acknowledging the societal privilege that came with me out of the womb doesn’t mean I feel guilty about it. It just means that I recognize that the mountains I’ve climbed aren’t quite as steep and my pack not quite as heavy. It also means that I regularly check myself and my organizations and affinity groups to make sure we’re not consciously or unconsciously adding weight into the packs that others were born wearing.
