Avoiding becoming paralysed

“If children can become paralysed by fear, and teenagers by a lack of hope and self-confidence, adults are sometimes paralysed, more or less consciously, by guilt which leads them to shut themselves off from others and prevents them from giving life and being responsible.”

~ the inimitable Jean Vanier, from Our Journey Home, p119
