As a shaman, there are things that I never say lightly. I am amazed at how cruel some people are to their own friends and family. I’ve heard it within my own family—words said out of anger that leave a scar.
I don’t normally tell someone to “get lost” or “go to hell.” As a shaman, I know what those words mean. I have been lost. I have been to hell.
If I ever say those words, you can be assured I thought long and hard before saying them and know that you’ve made me an enemy.
