Intro: birth, or “life as abstraction”

First body paragraph: growing up, or “injuries we will never forgive our parents for”

Second: puberty, or “what we try to forget”

Third: marriage and kids of our own, or “trying to avoid the same mistakes our parents made”

Conclusion: death, or “abstraction again”
