our many layers

"Emotional collapse comes when we have given ourselves over
to only one part of ourselves.
If we concentrate only on the children, or only on the job, or only on the money,
then when the children leave home, or the job ends, or the money is lost,
we have nothing else in life to live for.
But when we spend life developing all the many layers of the self,
no one thing can possibly destroy us.
Peace has a way of seeping from one category to another."
- Joan Chittister
