“It's a troublesome world. All the people who're in it
are troubled with troubles almost every minute.
You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot,
for the places and people you're lucky you're not.”
“Face the monster, you know...the one that works overtime to keep you down. The one that tells you it was your fault, the one that tells you you deserved it, that you didn't fight hard enough, that tells you you trusted him so what did you expect, the one that tells you things will never get better. That monster....he's a liar. Get to know him, and then kick him to the curb!”
“There are always going to be obstacles, and that's true in the healing journey too. But we can tear down the walls of those obstacles and get through it. It's essential for our well being and taking back the control in our lives. Never give up!”
“Becoming empowered and beginning to talk and take back control is a scary thing....very scary. Those that want to keep us down are afraid of that too. But, becoming empowered is necessary.... People couldn't shut me up now if their life depended on it....”
