. crossroads .

“This is a crossroads we all know, a moment when you need to shed a skin. If you do, you’ll expose all those painful nerve endings and feel so raw that you’ll need to take care of yourself for a while. If you don’t, then that skin will harden around you. It’s one of the most important choices you’ll ever make.“

Katherine May, Wintering

And that moment when we need to make that decision: it is now. Will we go on like we did for years and decades or will we change? Will we commit ourselves to take responsibility – self-responsibility and responsibility for the ones around us? Will we stop acting like children, crying for help and always looking for someone to blame or finally starting to help ourselves and offering help? Will we realize that each and every individual has the power to change, to learn, to grow?
Will we be brave enough to shed our skin and expose our raw self to the world – to heal together?
