Care of the soul
by Thomas Moore

Sometimes we may need to stop growing. We may need to backstep and regress. Growth, so often these days assumed automatically to be a goal in psychology and in life in general, can become a sentimental value that overlooks the necessity of such things as stagnancy and slippage. The child is not honored if we always expect him to grow up, because a child is not grown up.

I was obsessed with growth even at the expense of being violent to myself, and this book altered the way I think about caring for myself.
