I’ve been struggling with accepting some of my ancestors. I’ve been very very angry since I discovered their existence. They were, in fact, stereotypically evil in today’s standards. They also benefitted GREATLY from their evil. Like as in stupid rich. And when one branch of the family broke off from them, the branch I descend from, the money went *poof* because living a life of hard ethical work is much more difficult.
This is good advice. I wouldn’t be here without them.
