Why can’t I say it hurts? I grew up in a "suck it up and wear a smile" culture, but that is not restricted to where I grew up.

Now, this is one of those mainstay figure-head meditation gurus who's been around forever. My natural fierce-Momma instinct (made more so now that I have an actual baby) was to write him off completely - I mean, here was this person, an embodiment of perfection, being made to feel doomed to fail because someone, who doesn't even know that person, couldn't recognize that everyone... everyone... is great at some things and not at others.
