I am currently reading Phillip Bromberg’s book ‘Standing in the Spaces, Essays on Clinical Process, Trauma & Dissociation’. One quote really stood out today:
Self-expression and human relatedness will inevitably collide, but health in not integration. Health is the ability to stand in the spaces between realities without loosing any of them. This is what I believe self-acceptance means and what creativity is really all about- the capacity to feel like one self while being many.
