Quote of the Day

If we really want to have authentic connections with others, then we need to talk about two kinds of psychological baggage we tend to carry around, which make us completely self-conscious about our capacity to connect with people: (1) guilt about how we've let others down, and (2) resentment about being let down by others in the past.  The resulting beliefs -- that we are not enough, and that others are not enough -- get in the way of trusting our innate capacities to give.

-- Kelsey Crowe and Emily McDowell, There Is No Good Card for This, p. 27
