Love and pressure

21 October 2018

Porfirie xThe supposedly ‘pious’ parents, whose concern was to make their children into ‘good Christians’, oppressed them through their human love and achieved the opposite to what they wanted.

Children are pressed when they’re little and then, when they become sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, they go off in a different direction.
