Random quote

Found this while wading the Google.

Our dependency makes slaves out of us, especially if this dependency is a dependency of our self-esteem. If you need encouragement, praise, pats on the back from everybody, then you make everybody your judge.
Fritz Perls
I found it interesting. Some more...
I am not in this world to live up to other people's expectations, nor do I feel that the world must live up to mine.
Fritz Perls
And some Jung:
As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being.
Carl Jung

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
Carl Jung

Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble.
Carl Jung

The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.
Carl Jung

I was looking up Gestalt Therapy, which led me to Perls, which led me to a site that also had Jung quotes in it, because you know, psychology.
