Things to Remember

“Anxiety looks different in everyone. It is not a one size fits all concept.”

“When you have less anxiety, less feelings of overwhelm and stress, you’re going to be a more patient parent.”

“Understand yourself so you can communicate with your partners more effectively.”

“Once you understand how you want to receive and give love, you can communicate that to others.”

– Amber Trueblood

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” – Maya Angelou
