The Mirror of Love

“I’m convinced that we use resentment and anger to punish loved ones, not so much for their behavior as for the pain we feel from our reflections in the mirror of love.  In other words, it’s what we take their behavior to mean about us that causes us distress, resentment, and anger.”

— Steven Stosny, You Don’t Have to Take It Anymore, p. 48
