“Your emotions matter. Processing them matters more.”
“That top layer is just what your brain and your nervous system are exposing...you have to get that shovel and dig into the dirt a little deeper to see what’s underneath that feeling.”
“Reactivity is [...] how we make the uncomfortable comfortable.”
“If it’s not love, it’s probably a reaction.”
“If you’re spending all this energy worrying and doubting [...] you’re not opening up your brilliance to creativity”
