“You cannot disown what is yours. Flung out, there is always the return, the reckoning, the revenge, perhaps the reconciliation. There is always the return. And the wound will take you there.” [Jeannette Winterson]
It's in our nature to run away from pain--to sever it from our soul, and abandon it in our darkness. The truth is that what we "disown", that which we orphan, has our fingerprints all over it. We can no more escape it than we could escape our skin. Listen to your pain; caress your fears, for they are our most devote of teachers. It is in their whispers and the tinge of their aches, that we find the truth to calm our uncertainty.
