A wonderfully sensitive and active translator told me something about herself yesterday.

After about one hour, she says she’s told me more than her psychiatrist.

Nice to get a compliment like that.

I suppose it’s my biggest skill or talent, and that is accepting people the way they are.

It would be a great pleasure to do something more with this skill than I’m doing right now.

If I’m unhappy these days it’s because I’m most certainly not functioning as well as I could be.

That’s why I loved this quote by Maslow.

I think we can either embrace the pain of growing or the fleeting comfort of staying where we are and fleeing from our potential by dulling our minds.

The second option eventually leads to infinitely more pain than the first.
