Things to Remember
“A wound is anywhere in your life when a need wasn’t met or when you wanted something that didn’t happen for you.”
“Children listen to who you are energetically, more than what you say.”
“To be a parent and to live your life as aware as possible, is going to hurt your head.”
“We learn much more from our heartbreaks and disconnections if we are willing to go back and do the work.”
“Learn how to calm your nervous system, so you can meet your authentic needs.”
“‘Sorry’ is a cultural word that has been used as a shortcut.”
“Children don’t get traumatized because they are hurt. They get traumatized because they’re alone with the hurt.” – Dr. Gabor Mate
“Knowing that we can be loved exactly as we are, gives us all the best opportunity for growing into the healthiest of people.” -Fred Rogers
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” – Lao Tzu
