Clarissa Pinkola Estés – A woman who has spent time in ugly duckling status

Share this quote:
Clarissa Pinkola EstesThere is probably no better or more reliable measure of whether a woman has spent time in ugly duckling status at some point or all throughout her life than her inability to digest a sincere compliment. Although it could be a matter of modesty, or could be attributed to shyness- although too many serious wounds are carelessly written off as “nothing but shyness” – more often a compliment is stuttered around about because it sets up an automatic and unpleasant dialogue in the woman’s mind.

Clarissa Pinkola Estés – How to know if you have forgiven

Share this quote:
Clarissa Pinkola EstesHow does one know if she has forgiven? You tend to feel sorrow over the circumstance instead of rage, you tend to feel sorry for the person rather than angry with him. You tend to have nothing left to say about it all.
