Favorite Not Being Good Enough Quotes

1. "The real thing that keeps men and women apart, is fear. Women blame men and men blame women, but the culprit is fear, women are afraid of one thing, men are afraid of a different thing; the fears of women have to do with losing while the fears of men have to do with not being good enough for something. One is loss, the other is insecurity. Men are innately more insecure than women and women are innately more needful of companionship than men. It's good for both men and women to be able to recognize and identify these fears not only within themselves, but within each other, and then men and women will see that they really do need to help each other. It's not a game, it's not a competition, the two sexes need one another."

Death is not the biggestfear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive — the risk to be alive and express what wereally are. Just being ourselves is the biggest fear of humans.

We have learned to live by other people's points of view because ofthe fear of not being accepted and of not being good enough for someone else."

Smart enough to understand Pilar knew it, too.She didn't even mind being dragged into the dress shop, or having the conversation turn absolutelyand completely to clothes and fabric and color and cut.And when she watched Sophia dash in, windblown, flushed, happy, Maddy at not quite fifteen hada revelation. She wouldn't mind being like her, like Sophia Giambelli"

Today's Quote

My sister Emily first declined. The details of her illness are deep-branded in my memory, but to dwell on them, either in thought or narrative, is not in my power. Never in all her life had she lingered over any task that lay before her, and she did not linger now. She sank rapidly. She made haste to leave us. Yet, while physically she perished, mentally, she grew stronger than we had yet known her. Day by day, when I saw with what a front she met suffering, I looked on her with anguish of wonder and love. I have seen nothing like it; but, indeed, I have never seen her parallel in anything. Stronger than a man, simpler than a child, her nature stood alone. The awful point was, that, while full of ruth for others, on herself she had no pity; the spirit inexorable to the flesh; from the trembling hand, the unnerved limbs, the faded eyes, the same service exacted as they had rendered in health. To stand by and witness this, and not dare to remonstrate, was pain no words can render."
