“All of us, I’m afraid, are out of balance and suffering for it.
We succeed, but experience only a momentary sense of success
before the old emptiness returns. Noted author Harold Kushner writes,
‘Many apparently successful people feel that their success is undeserved and that one day people will unmask them for the frauds they are. For all the outward trappings of success, they feel hollow inside. They can never rest and enjoy their accomplishments. They need one new success after another. They need constant reassurance from the people around them to still the quiet voice inside that keeps saying, ‘If other people knew you the way I know you, they would know what a phony you are.’”
