break the mold or die trying


“Some choices are made for us before we’re born. Some traditions are set in hard patterns we’re expected to follow, their seams welded, their strengths and weaknesses hammered into place. We don’t cast our own shadows until we know who we love and where we belong. Only then do we understand.

Sometimes you’ve got to break the mold that’s been made for you, or die trying”

Love that passage's what I've been feeling for a loooong time!

a very thought provoking quote-- so true that we can't break the mold until we know or understand more about ourselves-- will have to use that one when I teach my workshops
