A Quote by Nancy Chodorow on apologies, awareness, duty, guilt, and hatred

Since our awareness of others is considered our duty, the price we pay when things go wrong is guilt and self-hatred. And things always go wrong. We respond with apologies; we continue to apologize long after the event is forgotten - and even if it had no casual relation to anything we did to begin with.

A Quote by Nancy Chodorow on certainty, desires, inclusion, independence, maturity, needs, and relationships

Maturity is not equated with independence though it includes a certain capacity for independence...The independence of the mature person is simply that he does not collapse when he has to stand alone. It is not an independence of needs for other persons with whom to have relationship: that would not be desired by the mature.
