Quote of the Day

What these adults need then in an enlightened witness who can accompany them on the road to their own truth, help them embark on a process in the course of which they will finally permit themselves the always-wanted but always-denied things: trust, respect, and love for themselves.  We must abandon the expectation that someday the parents will give us what they withheld in childhood.

-- Alice Miller, The Body Never Lies, p. 101
