  • 14.04 And that’s what my book’s all about, is, like, the root of it, of high functioning anxiety, is you not feeling enough. And when you’re not feeling enough, it’s because we’re disconnected from our intuition, we’re disconnected from self trust. And that’s what we want to go back into, is come back to trusting yourself.
  • 20.47 We feel dysregulated, and we want to do something because we’re in that state, fight or flight, and it’s like, I need to just get rid of this. But we also need to understand and tune into the body and make sense of what is actually going on, to then find a way to respond rather than be reactive in that space.
  • 28.13 Sensitivity is seen as a weakness. If someone is saying, oh, that’s really upset me, or that’s really hurt my. It’s like, oh, you’re taking up space. You’re creating a scene, you’re making a bigger deal than it needs to be, and then you’re perceived as being, like, the one who’s, like, the interrupter or the one who isn’t good enough or the one that’s a troublemaker.

I’m all of these things because that’s what we know how to, and it keeps us safe.
  • “The root of of high functioning anxiety, is you not feeling enough.”

  • “We trust ourselves to get it done.”
