Assuming our Humanity

“Man can choose only between two possibilities: to regress or to move forward. He can  either return to an archaic, pathogenic solution, or he can progress toward, and develop, his humanity. ”

(Erich Fromm,  The Heart of Man: Its Genius for Good and Evil)

At every instant, whatever the circumstances we are faced with may be, we are free to choose how we perceive them and how we respond to them.
