« You cannot protect anyone from themselves; you cannot protect anyone from life. You cannot spare a loved one the confrontation with their own mortality, their own stupidity or their own emptiness.
« Indeed, to take on the burden of sentry, guarding another person’s borders, is to interfere with that person’s life lesson. If we are the sum of everything that happens to us, to limit a person’s experience is to limit their growth. » ~Dr. David Viscott, Psychiatrist (Inspiration Line – Blessing the Obstacles).
