We all have to do this occasionally don’t we? Step back, slow down and scrub off the misguided beliefs that cling to our psyches like barnacles. It becomes high time to get rid of the grime of outdated prejudices and cut back the creeping tentacles of self-doubt.
All this takes work and certainly doesn’t come easily. Usually some real pain or psychological trauma forces it upon us.
Tough as cleaning our windows always is; once done, the sun shines brighter and we see people and events with more clarity.
All these improvements are good for a while but, sadly they never last and there will come a time when we will have to do it all over again.
That’s life. There’s no way around it.
