“Patients must be willing to give up their maladaptive coping styles in order to change. For example, patients who continue surrendering to the schema—by remaining in destructive relationships or by not setting limits in their personal or work lives -perpetuate the schema and are not able to make significant progress in therapy.”
Jeffrey E. Young, Schema Therapy: A Practitioner's Guide

“Having a secret is isolating.” Try, as much as possible, not to hide your flaws or perceived differences.”
Jeffrey E. Young, Reinventing Your Life: The Breakthough Program to End Negative Behavior...and Feel Great Again

“You must learn to express your anger appropriately and constructively. Instead of continuing to let your anger control you, you must learn to use your anger to improve the relationships in your life.”
