Maybe we’re all guilty of creating horcruxes. Maybe we all do things to other people that irretrievably mess up our souls. And maybe we’re also all horcruxes ourselves, damned to carry around scars made by others. If hurt people hurt people, how can we ever break the cycle? The obvious answer is remorse, but that’s problematic as it presupposes a mistake has already been made. The harder answer, but the one more likely to make the difference, is compassion.
I have to think about this some more….
