"Wenn uns Verzweiflung überkommt, liegt es gewöhnlich daran, dass wir zuviel an die Vergangenheit und die Zukunft denken."
Therese von Lisieux
“When a child shuts down his painful emotional side, he also loses the ability to express his joyous side. Emotions are a whole. With anger comes the ability to express delight; with sadness comes the ability to express lightheartedness. This is the breadth of emotion that allows an adult to experience intimacy with a spouse, with God, and with his children”
― Henry Cloud, Secrets of Your Family Tree: Healing for Adult Children of Dysfunctional Families
