Yesterday I got sucked into watching Britains Got Talent on Youtube. There was a contestant who was a father of 6 adopted children, all of whom had come from difficult backgrounds.
He was asked why he came on the show and he said he wanted to show his kids you can dream. What he said that really struck me was “When you’re surviving, you can’t dream.”
I know I still often feel I’m in survival mode, even though the danger is long past.
I was moved to share this in case it rings true for anyone else.
