5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

“Having to feel your feelings and getting to know what those feelings are is both terrifying and amazing at the same time.”

“Everyone’s grief process is like their fingerprint. It’s not the same.”

“I think our bodies know what we need to do, whether we’re drunk or not. It’s just the fact that, like, we emotionally don’t understand what we’re doing because we’ve numbed the feeling.”

“I really got to figure out what legacy it is that I want to imprint on this planet while I’m here.”

“Whatever you feel you’re going through right now—like you’re broken, or you’re used up, or whatever it is—you’re a child of the universe or God or the spirit, whatever you want to call it. And you deserve endless, unconditional love.”
