“... my expectations — which I extended whenever I came close to accomplishing my goals — made it impossible ever to feel satisfied with my success.”
“Believing in our hearts that who we are is enough is the key to a more satisfying and balanced life.”
“In a society that judges self-worth on productivity, it's no wonder we fall prey to the misconception that the more we do, the more we're worth.”
“The turning point is that moment of naked acceptance of the truth.”
“Guilt is tricky because we confuse it with caring. ... It's the next best thing to being there.”
“Things that don't get better, get worse.”
Ellen Sue Stern, U.S. writer
