Quotes * Dr. Harriet Lerner

Anxiety is the on-switch for every
negative picture that you've ever
had about yourself.

It's not fear that makes our lives
narrow and small - it's avoidance.

Avoidance makes us feel less
vulnerable in the short run but it will
never make us less afraid.

No one will accept an identity of
self-worth defined by the very worst
thing they do.


Easy to think we're enlightened
when everything is going great!

Fear = False Evidence Appearing Real

Fear is just an indication that some decision or action is needed on my part.

There are no guarantees.
From the viewpoint of fear, none are strong enough. From the viewpoint of love, none are necessary.
~ Emmanuel

me love myself ...
