Quotes used on this episode:

The true opposite of depression is not gaiety or absence of pain, but vitality: the freedom to experience spontaneous feelings.

– Alice Miller

It was not the beautiful or pleasant feelings that gave me new insight, but the ones against which I fought most strongly: feelings that made me experience myself as shabby, petty, mean, helpless, humiliated, demanding, resentful or confused, and above all, sad and lonely. It was precisely through these experiences, which I had shunned for so long, that I became certain that I now understood something about my life, stemming from the core of my being, something that I could not have learned from any book.

-Alice Miller
