I’m re-reading the In Death mystery series books in random order again. One of the main series characters is a forensic psychiatrist named Dr. Charlotte Mira. She becomes friend/family/mother figure/mentor to Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke as the series goes on.
This quote is from Imitation in Death after the the two characters are discussing the serial killer’s psychological profile and potential next victim(s). Lieutenant Dallas confides in Dr. Mira about a recovered memory regarding her mother.
“They weren’t your parents.”
“They conceived you – egg and sperm. She incubated you, and expelled you from her body when it was time. But they weren’t your parents. There’s a difference. You know there is.”
Growing up, kids & teens have a less choices or control over their lives.
Adults have more choices and control over their lives. They can follow and repeat the cycle into another generation.
Or they can stop the cycle by making different choices.
Anyone reading this post or others here is making different choices.
Kudos to to you (guests), me, and all of us for making our own choices about life.
Thanks for reading.
