“Yearning & Fear” (Jean Vanier)

Each person with his or her history of being accepted or rejected, with his or her past history of inner pain and difficulties in relationships, is different. But in each one there is a yearning for communion and belonging, but at the same time a fear of it.

Love is what we most want, yet it is what we fear the most.

Jean Vanier
