Avoiding Becoming Paralyzed

Monday 5 January 2009, by Willem Kuypers // Jean Vanier English

If children can become paralyzed by fear, and teenagers by a lack of hope and self confidence, adults are sometimes paralyzed, more or less consciously, by guilt which leads them to shut themselves off from others and prevents them from giving life and being responsible.
