A nice article, Octavia. My own experience is that most people don’t seem to want to make, or can’t make, the effort to get past emotional issues. A therapist friend of mine once complained that most of her clients came to her “to polish the jewels of their traumas, not to heal them and move past them.”

Anyone who enjoys my articles here on Medium may be interested in my books Why Democracy Failed and The Praying Ape, both available from Amazon.
