The most important work we can do, individually and globally, is the healing and prevention of traumas so that we don't pass them down to future generations. This blog is a working tool to contribute to this good work.

Your mother was beautiful–amazing that she was capable of inflicting such pain on her own child.
I was thinking about that this morning. So many ‘mental illness’ gene combinations are attached to or combined with very ‘sexually alluring’ qualities, probably because nature designed with hopes of keeping the high-risk intelligence, creativity, etc. genes operating in the gene pool — sort of stacking the genetic deck that way. But, having the genes for ‘brilliance’ of any kind accompanies an extreme vulnerability and high risk for problems if early developmental conditions are too stressful. These high risk potential genetic combinations for ‘giftedness’ are what is called ‘expensive’ genes — there is a high price, a high cost for keeping our special human gifts within our species. My mother was one of these vulnerable children — and things went BAD! (like the peacock’s tail)
^^ *Nods*….I agree, these gifts come with a high price
