Freud on transforming hysterical misery into common unhappiness

“I do not doubt that it would be easier for fate to take away your suffering than it would for me. But you will see for yourself that much has been gained if we succeed in turning your hysterical misery into common unhappiness. With a mental life that has been restored to health, you will be better armed against that unhappiness.”

― Sigmund Freud, Studies on Hysteria (1895), (co-written with Josef Breuer)
