I will tell you this much about the Camino: with one focus, few distractions and all those solitary moments, you come into close contact with your emotions. I mean real close contact.
You go through quite a range everyday: frustration, impatience, anger, hopelessness. Not the most pleasant parts of you, but it’s all brought out into the light for you to see. And acknowledge. And embrace. And accept that they’re a part of you.
Because unless we fully accept ourselves, will other people be willing to fully accept us, chef?
