7.5 billion people in this world and you let the opinion of one stop your good energy? You’re better than that.

I spend an insane amount of time wondering if I’m doing it right. At some point I just remind myself that I’m doing my best. That is enough.

You’re not too old, and it’s not too late.

So many messages telling those who are struggling to reach out. Fair enough, but part of what depression does is mutes your ability to reach. If you are NOT depressed and you see someone struggling, YOU reach out. If you don’t see someone who used to be around, YOU reach out.

Agreeing to things just to keep the peace is actually a trauma response. When you do this you’re disrespecting your boundaries. No more making yourself uncomfortable for others to feel comfortable. You have control now. You run your life. Take up space and use your voice.

When you keep criticizing your kids, they don’t stop loving you. They stop loving themselves. Let that sink in.

When your bones are tired of carrying everyone else’s problems, and when your lungs are tired of breathing life into other people, return back home to yourself for a while. Shift your energy back inwards. Reunite with peace again.

When trauma has shaped you, try not to confuse who you had to become with who you can be.

Six year olds laugh an average of 300 times a day. Adults only laugh 15-100 times a day. Be six again.

Lack of communication ruins everything, because instead of knowing how the other person is feeling, we just assume.

What does it mean to hold space for another person? It means that we are willing to walk alongside another person in whatever journey they’re on without judging them, making them feel inadequate, trying to fix them, or trying to impact the outcome. When we hold space for other people, we open our hearts, offer unconditional support, and let go of judgment and control.

I hope you know you’re capable and brave and significant, even when it feels like you’re not.

When it’s time for something new, you will feel it. You will feel a desire to let go, to shed layers, to move, to re-create. You will know because there will be subtle shifts all around you. You will release the old because you are really clearing the path for what’s ahead. Trust the process.

So many people from your past know a version of you that doesn’t exist anymore.

You don’t need a ‘perfect relationship.’ All you need is someone who loves your weirdness, wants to spend time with you, and respects you.

You’re too sensitive = You won’t let me disrespect you.

Look at you! Healing those traumas, addressing those bad habits, holding yourself accountable, no longer seeking validation from others, and finally speaking your personal truth. Seriously, I applaud you! Growth gets messy, ugly, and painful, yet here you are growing. We see you!

You can’t change the people around you, but you can change the people you choose to be around.

Even if we disagree about everything we can still be kind to each other.

Beneath every behavior there is a feeling. And beneath each feeling is a need. And when we meet that need, rather than focus on the behavior, we begin to deal with the cause, not the symptom.
