Harriet Lerner

Harriet Lerner

American clinical psychologist.
The term girl not only serves to avoid certain anxiety-arousing connotations inherent in the word woman regarding aggression, sexuality, and reproduction, it also serves to impart a tone of frivolousness and lack of seriousness to ambitious, intellectual, and competitive striving that women may pursue.More Harriet Lerner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The bolder and more courageous you are, the more you will learn about yourself.More Harriet Lerner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is not fear that stops you from doing the brave and true thing in your daily life. Rather, the problem is avoidance. You want to feel comfortable so you avoid doing or saying the thing that will evoke fear and other difficult emotions. Avoidance will make you feel less vulnerable in the short run but, it will never make you less afraid.More Harriet Lerner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Relationships are most likely to fail when we don't address problems or hold our partner accountable for unfair or irresponsible behavior ... the ability to clarify our values, beliefs, and life goals--and then to keep our behavior congruent with them--is at the heart of a solid marriage.More Harriet Lerner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Kids want nothing more than for all the important adults in their life to get along.More Harriet Lerner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
