I'm kind of psychotic and I like to talk about things. I'm a Virgo, too, so I like to analyze and overprocess.
I like to let things breathe.
If you go back far enough and get a wider enough picture of history, we have let go of many things that follow a religious narrative. We don't burn witches anymore.
