“When we are committed to what we want, but flexible about how it comes, we open the door to miracles.”
“You are the most constant thing in your own life. Befriend yourself first. Invest in yourself first. Become yourself first. The rest will come together in time.”
When You’re Ready, This Is How You Heal Quotes
“And maybe in the end, the kindest possible thing you could do for yourself is to know that there is nothing that holds us back more than the important words that went unspoken, the deep instincts that went unfelt, the callings that went unanswered.”
“Everything that is meant for you will feel like a deep exhale, as though you are returning home to a place you forgot existed.”
“Healing is not so much a chapter in your story but changing the way you write the entire book.”
“I hope you learn how to see your evolution not as a linear ascent into perfection, but an unpacking of why you might want to perfect yourself in the first place. What feels so broken? And who taught you it was that way?”
“I hope you will not allow this life to make you bitter. I hope you will not fight for your limitations more often than you do your potential. I hope you will never stop believing that a miracle is right around the corner, because it always is. I hope you will know that the willingness to believe in what may be is often the very path that brings it all forward.”
“There is not just one version of you that exists. To some, you are the beauty standard. To others, you are easily overlooked. To some, you are a genius at your craft. To others, you are irrelevant. To some, you are an incredible friend. To others, you are a complete stranger. To some, you are a life partner. To others, you are not someone they’d even date. To some, you are a teacher. To others, you are a student. To some, you are a guide. To others, you are a beginner. To some, you are a shining light. To others, you reveal their darkness.
The reality is that you exist in so many different forms and images and projections — and yet, the only one that is ever really going to matter is the way you see yourself. Allow this knowing to free you. Allow it to help you see that maybe there is more dimension, more contrast, more nuance, and more goodness within you than you have ever allowed your-self to believe.”
“You have to start being kind to yourself. Kind in the way that you’re kind to a child, to someone or something so innocent and endlessly deserving of your affection and praise.”
“Your first and most crucial task is your commitment to your own becoming. It is from this garden that all else is harvested. Your first purpose is just to be here. To be weird and ordinary and exceptional. To think and feel and know and wonder. To build yourself into a person you are proud to be, even if nobody else is clapping.”

“How to break free from people pleasing:
1. Setting clear boundaries: boundaries are your own limits that teach people what we will and will not accept.
2. Get comfortable disappointing people: disappointment is part of life, and we may disappoint people. That's ok, and doesn't mean we are wrong or bad.
3. Notice your patterns of over-explaining or over-apologizing: this is an anxious habit response that we use to try to soothe our sense of guilt. Ironically, it actually brings up anxious in other people. Short answers will help you feel more confident.
4. Unlearn self sacrifice as a badge of honor: culture glorifies self sacrifice and idealizes the idea that putting others first makes us a good person. In reality, if we don't meet our own needs we can't be there for other people in the ways we want to.
5. Be kind to yourself: people pleasers tend to be quite hard on themselves. Creating a healthy relationship with yourself means speaking yourself in kind ways, honoring that you have good intentions, and knowing its ok to*please yourself, too.”
