Quote of the Day

A genuine relationship is possible only if both partners can admit their feelings, experience them and communicate them to each other without fear ... Why should we seek this exchange with our old parents, of all people?  They are no longer partners for us, in the genuine sense of the word.  The story that linked us with them is over once we have children of our own and once we can genuinely communicate with partners we have selected for ourselves.

-- Alice Miller, The Body Never Lies, p. 151-152
