The Practice of Psychotherapy (The Collected Works of C. G. Jung, Volume 16)

“The principle aim of psychotherapy is not to transport the patient to an impossible state of happiness, but to help them acquire a steadfastness and philosophic patience in face of suffering.

Life demands for its completion and fulfillment a balance between joy and sorrow.

But because suffering is positively disagreeable, people naturally prefer not to ponder how much fear and sorrow fall to the lot of man.”Carl Jung; Psychotherapy and a Philosophy of Life’
