[1:00:31] Why understanding our shadow parts is really important
- “I didn't have an intimate relationship with myself. I didn't even know I had an inside, I was spinning so fast on the outside, trying to be safe look good, that I never slowed down. And when I did, it didn't feel very good to feel.” [10:50]
- Because the humiliated part of me doesn't want to be humiliated forever. She just wants to be held, until she doesn't have to change to be loved. Ever. Yeah, so I call that intimacy” [12:36]
- You cannot be in a secure relationship with somebody that is that insecure within themselves” [16:45]
- Like my dad, who was never present. He was drunk and stoned, never made me feel safe.” [20:03]
- “Just let ourselves say like, if you can enjoy being the hot mess if you could just be a bit gentler.” [24:30]
- Not everybody needs to be married Alanna. Maybe you just need some lovers and vibrators.” [24:37]
- The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure that you seek [25:42].
- I am willing to stand up for myself, I am willing to speak up. I am willing to allow others to be uncomfortable with my truth. [26:46]
- I really do believe we come together to pass each other off and set each other free. Like we were meant to awaken each other and awakening, sometimes it's comfortable.” [32:16]
- We don't need to get rid of shame. Shame is required. Perfect, awesome, delicious, beautiful, highly uncomfortable, but awesome as the springboard to the other side of that continuum, which is our glory [45:07].
- Intimacy, it's almost like connect, like you never get there. [51:54]
- Don't be afraid to let go of the people that are not in your best interest. And when you're letting go of those people that are not in your best interest, it doesn't mean that you can't keep a window open to invite them back in when it's time. [56:16].
- I believe dating apps are designed to keep us single, they make money when we fail at love, not when we succeed [1:02:00]
