“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” ~Brené Brown

“I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.” ~Hafiz

“I decided that the most subversive, revolutionary thing I could do was to show up for my life and not be ashamed.” ~Anne Lamott

“Do not wish them pain. That’s not who you are. If they caused you pain, they must have pain inside. Wish them healing.” ~Najwa Zebian
