“You would think that would be my rock bottom. Four days later, I was back at it”
"I wanted to flock to something that was constant, and work was constant for me, and I was good at work. I could dive right in, so for me, it was blinders. I remember my sister was pronounced dead, and I grabbed my laptop and started working by her bedside table"
"As I worked the process and worked through myself and with the help of family and friends, my therapist and even medication, I realized that I could use this to help push me forward instead of holding me back"
"When you're going through something hard, you start to lose that sense of sunshiny positivity, you start to lose your sense of self. Who you know yourself to be starts to slip through your fingers. It also makes you feel like a fraud”
“The more we can break this down in our interpersonal relationships with one another, the more freedom and confidence we will have in bringing that authenticity in the greater world”
“Over that period of very traumatic events... I listened to a bunch of books, talked to a lot of experts, gone to conferences, joined different support groups and I realized that it's gonna be a lifelong journey”
“I looked in the mirror, I was getting ready to go to work, and all of a sudden the person I saw was...I wasn't laughing, I wasn't having fun, I hadn't seen my friends. I was just traveling, I was just grinding”
"I realized that the conversation of body positivity and feeling insecure in who you are wasn't a conversation publicly...and I realized that I wanted to start having those conversations publicly"
