Soar Above began as a way of answering three questions that have nagged at me throughout my 30 plus years of clinical practice:
1. Why do so many smart and creative people make the same mistakes over and over, in life, work, and love?
2. At what point does the unavoidable emotional pain of life become entirely avoidable suffering?
3. How do we escape suffering, while remaining vibrant and passionate about life?
Neurological discoveries in recent years have helped answer the first two questions, as we’ll see in the body of the book. But the third question goes beyond science to the very nature of what it means to be human.

“You don’t have to take it anymore: Turn your resentful, angry, or emotionally abusive relationship into a compassionate, loving one / Steven Stosny.”
Steven Stosny, You Don't Have to Take it Anymore: Turn Your Resentful, Angry, or Emotionally Abusive Relationship into a Compassionate, Loving One

“Resentment and anger have amphetamine and analgesic effects.”
Steven Stosny, You Don't Have to Take it Anymore: Turn Your Resentful, Angry, or Emotionally Abusive Relationship into a Compassionate, Loving One

“Shame and fear are the most potent and universal emotional inhibitors. I cannot experience love if it smacks of the probability of rejection or augurs my inability to sustain it. I cannot experience sufficient interest to achieve my fullest potential if I sense the shame of failure or the risk of harm, deprivation, or isolation.”
Steven Stosny, The Laws of Emotion and Meaning
