Look to science and they will tell you that you were once a monkey, not precisely a monkey; I am only trying to get my point across. Yes, perhaps there are many instances of a throwback to the Neanderthal; of this I have no doubt. On one hand we have a loving and brilliant mind and on the other we have a psychopathic attacker of humanity.
Habits are learned, but not all things are habits. Children will imitate those that are around them, generally family and perhaps a close friend. But, only so much is an imitation. If as a child very clingy, odds are high that they will also be so as an adult; I have watched this progression in people I have grown up with and lived around. Only problem there being that their acts may get diabolical in order to get what they want in future years. That is only to say if they have the tendency to begin with.
I say that it is not as they say unto you; they hide that which is truth so that you may remain an unquestioning slave unto them. Will we live to a time where the truth shall be revealed to us? Will there come a day when all that has passed will make sense to us? It is easy to say the answer is within your own heart but, accepting what our Souls tell unto us is often times a very difficult task. Our brains have been trained to ignore that which they say is not possible.
Here is a short time, but while we are here it does not seem to be so. Do not lose faith, the answers will be shown to you, here or there. Stay on the side of love and do not let your worldly experiences mar the person that you were meant to be.
