    Quotes

    “It became really clear to me that I had put myself last and I had put art and college and doing and achieving first. I’ve always been a really good doer and achiever, I haven’t always been great at taking care of myself.” (13:09)

    “It’s really nerve-wracking. And I think what’s so natural to happen is your identity, without you realizing it, gets super wrapped up in ‘this is who I am and this is the only thing I can be’. “ (22:24)

    “Paying attention to my thoughts in a very non-judgemental way has been very helpful, but 1000% did not happen overnight.” (27:19)

    “It’s almost like a storm sometimes, these thoughts. These thoughts you get caught up in and then sometimes you realize a little too late like, oh no I’m still outside and it’s raining.” (30:40)

    “The idea of self-compassion is just turning all of that compassion and support that you know you can very easily give to someone else, and turning that on yourself. (37:48)
