Quote of the Day

... our psyches will push us from within to face our history and the legacy of our parent's history.  The push is usually in the form of a psychological or relationship crisis.  The inevitable first step is finding the courage to face our inner self in a much deeper way than we may have been willing to face before.  Once we have a crisis that we cannot ignore -- whether it is a relationship failure, depression, or unrelenting anxiety -- we may finally allow ourselves permission to look further into our psyches and seek help in therapy.

-- Eleanor D. Payson, The Wizard of Oz and Other Narcissists, p. 84
