neurosis


Random quote of the day:

“Neurosis is essentially a loss of contact with reality. We all possess a ‘reality function’—the ability to reach out and make contact with reality. It is obviously weaker in children than adults, because the child has had less experience of reality, and therefore finds it harder to evoke reality ‘inside his own head,’ so to speak. For this is what is at issue: the ability to summon reality, like summoning the genie from the lamp, and to make it present itself inside one’s own head.”

—Colin Wilson, C. G. Jung: Lord of the Underworld

Random quote of the day:

“I have frequently seen people become neurotic when they content themselves with inadequate or wrong answers to the questions of life. They seek position, marriage, reputation, outward success or money, and remain unhappy and neurotic even when they have attained what they were seeking. Such people are usually confined within too narrow a spiritual horizon. Their life has not sufficient content, sufficient meaning. If they are enabled to develop into more spacious personalities, the neurosis generally disappears.”

—Carl Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections
