“Negativity, in general, becomes negative emotions and negative emotions become hurtful and cancerous to the body and it pours out to everything that you do.” [15:44]

“Whenever I’m in pain, I used to spend a lot of time blaming myself.” [22:00]

“Most of the time when someone hurts, it’s not really about you. It’s about them projecting what’s going on with them on you.” [23:24]

“I don’t ignore the pain. I don’t ignore the hurt. It has a place. I just try to be responsible when it comes to it.” [24:35]

“I just try to be present for every part of my journey. I try to make everything simple and clear.” [28:56]
