Progessing in Reverse

We're trying to short-circuit who we are, calling it progress. It just leaves us all the emptier inside. Instead of pursuing the things that fulfill us, we've started trying to pretend we can be what we're not.

This will come to an end. There are those pretending to fight who they are, making a good show just to pacify us. They won't pretend forever. As soon as you're weak and unprotected enough, they'll grab you violently and undo everything you've deceived yourself into thinking you'd accomplished.
