1. "We are so used
    to the idea of a woman
    hating herself
    that the thought
    of self love and confidence
    is repulsive."

  2. Authentic Self Authentic Life - How Betrayal and Abandonment in Childhood affect Adult Relationships

    Youtube Description:

    Episode #3 explains what an ‘attachment style’ is, how it develops in early childhood based on the way in which we were parented and how it impacts our adult ability to successfully or unsuccessfully bond with another. Many of us end up in repetitive patterns of behavior that do not please us when it comes to relationships and we do not know why this is so or how to change it. When we understand our attachment style and are able to identify our beliefs around intimacy and safety and recognize our fears around betrayal and abandonment-we can change our relational patterns of behavior. Understanding this particular landscape, provides the opportunity to transform confusion and self blame into acceptance, understanding and compassion-creating a new awareness that can bring us the kind of relationship we truly desire.

  6. "Too many young women I think are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant. They are too often selling themselves short. They too often take criticism personally instead of seriously. You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient enough to keep moving forward, whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others. Believe me, this is hard-won advice I’m putting forth. It’s not like you wake up and understand this. It’s a process."
