What She Said, August 16: Glennon Doyle

We know what the world wants from us. We know we must decide whether to stay small, quiet, and uncomplicated or allow ourselves to grow as big, loud, and complex as we were made to be. Every girl must decide whether to be true to herself or true to the world. Every girl must decide whether to settle for adoration or fight for love. –Glennon Doyle

What She Said, May 26: Brene Brown

A deep sense of love and belonging is an irreducible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong. When those needs are not met, we don’t function as we’re meant to. We break. We fall apart. We numb. We ache. We hurt others. We get sick.
