We do not choose our parents, or the debt they’ve bequeathed us. But we can, if we choose, create something better and finer from the ash heap of the past

consciousness is both a gift and a curse,’ Gessen said. ‘We spend the vast majority of our time either agonising about the mistakes of the past or worrying about the future. Ever aware of our mortality, how do we construct a healthy life? How do we live, love, work when we know that obliteration awaits us at some unknown point in the future?
