Chained


If you're going to hold someone down you're going to have to hold on by the other end of the chain. You are confined by your own repression. ~Toni Morrison

What a fabulous quote. It's so true, but it's so easy to forget, too. I love it.

How true & so clever, Getzapped. A chain even if it stays in our heads,is a terrible thing.

A good thing to remember - both as the receiver and perhaps sometimes also the represser.

It's a good approach for me to remember for a current situation that is approaching for me. Maybe it will help me break the pattern of being repressed. Thanks.
