"It's really easy to get disconnected from ourselves because we're not really even taught how to connect with ourselves to begin with. And so learning how to connect with ourselves is part of the process of being able to witness others".

"That’s what it feels like a lot for adults is like, “Oh, if I breathe deeply and regularly and try to do that, whatever is about to come up is never going to stop”, is what it feels like. And so we just press it down, press it down, press it down, and refuse to be still. But the more that you practice being still, the more that you can allow those things to come up naturally, and it won't be so explosive".

"You can act out the things to love and connect with other people, but it's not going to be as deep or as that beautiful feeling of connection unless you have that with yourself".

"‘Other people's feelings and how they respond is not our responsibility".

"Until you get connected with yourself enough to know what you want, to know what it is that you need, you can't ask for that support. You can't have those clear conversations until you actually connect with yourself".
