“There is no betrayal because there is no contract in the Universe.” [2:01]
“A tough conversation is any conversation that feels awkward or we’re afraid of having and I think we sweep too many of these under the carpet.” [4:00]
“If there’s a major betrayal in your life from your point of view, then I think there should be a conversation that has to be had.” [5:28]
“I feel better about myself. I feel more connected to myself because I spoke up about something that matters to me.” [10:21]
“It’s one thing that you share your feelings; “I feel upset”, but what’s one thing that you would do to move things forward?” [20:37]
“I want people to know that the niverse is a lot friendlier than most of us give it credit. The ego tries to defend you and the ego will present that tough conversation in the worst possible way.” [30:22]
