Sat 'IT' Saturdays

Translating the metaphysical world of a seemingly innocuous pronoun is a profound endeavor. We usually write it off without acknowledging the nuanced complexities and deep referential realities that live inside it. People say, ‘Get over it.’ But what exactly is the ‘it’ we are supposed to get over– the insult itself? The insecurity that makes us vulnerable to it? The layers of childhood baggage attached to it? If we are able to say ‘it’, maybe we can begin doing ‘it’, getting over ‘it’, taking ‘it’ to the next level, living ‘it’!
