As someone in a helping profession, it has come to my attention more so over the years how I originally went into this work with a white savior kind of attitude even thought I did not think that was the attitude I had. I have been aware of being not racist but until more recently have not done the work to be anti racist. I know that I have been part of the problem by perpetuating systems and thinking that were built for and by primarily white men of means. I have really started to think more on how I can use my position to give more people a place and a voice at the table and work to deconstruct and refashion parts of or whole systems. There is definitely this realization that at points in time I have had thoughts of me being one of the good ones and thinking that this is enough. I know now that action is needed and am doing the work to learn the most appropriate way to engage in that action in a way where I am not centered.
