Easier to deal with what you know than letting go

Because the past is what places us here, now where and who we are. On the other hand there can be a sort of security in the misery of what we know. To let go of that is to cease to blame others for your inner pain.

the Huney in Hun

it's so clear we are conditioned by our past to believe and to act in certain ways. As a therapist it's so very clear that our narratives follow a line and that we each derive our filters, our ways of perceiving from the experiences that shape us, as clearly as clay is shaped at the hand of the potter, at that wheel, that wheal. We are injured in the process. We are poked and prodded and we develop holes. Empathy, compassion, new role models, are ways of counteracting the hatred that builds in some people, creating perceptions that are so often distorted towards others. This little piece from a truly magic movie is so great at pointing this out.
