“The job of protectors is to protect you from feeling pain. They try to arrange your life and your psyche so that you are always in a kind of comfort zone and you never feel hurt, shame, or fear. They attempt to protect you from hurtful incidents or distressing relationships in your current life that could bring up buried pain from your childhood.”1“Self-Therapy” Second Edition, Jay Earley, PhD
