“As we get older it is our short term memory that fades rather than our long term memory. Perhaps we have evolved like this so that we are able to tell the younger generation about the stories and experiences that have formed us which may be important to subsequent generations if they are to thrive.

I worry though, about what might happen to our minds if most of the stories we hear are about greed, war, and atrocity”
Philippa Perry, How to Stay Sane

“The practice of self-observation mirrors the way in which a mother observes and attunes to her baby. Self-observation is a method of re-parenting ourselves. ... What am I feeling now? What am I thinking now? What am I doing at this moment? How am I breathing? What do I want for myself in this new moment?”
Philippa Perry, How to Stay Sane

“...many of our ideas, feelings and actions come fmor the right brain, while the left brain makes up reasons for those ideas, feelings and actions retrospectively.”
