Quotes from the show:

  • “That whole idea of superwoman started from such a wonderful place. It started from I think the Women's Movement and this idea that we can do it all, and then over the years, it morphed into ‘We are freaking exhausted.’” –Dr. Zoe Shaw Support is Sexy Ep. #773
  • “This idea that we can do it all doesn’t mean we have to do it all in one season. It doesn’t mean that we have to do it all by ourselves.” –Dr. Zoe Shaw Support is Sexy Ep. #773
  • “Our cape has to be healthy, it has to be light, and it has to look like us, not somebody else.” –Dr. Zoe Shaw Support is Sexy Ep. #773
  • “If when you look at your priorities and you figure out I don’t want to be this way anymore, it’s okay to completely shift… It’s okay to change.” –Dr. Zoe Shaw Support is Sexy Ep. #773
  • "It’s easier to make very small changes. You’ll have better reactions from the system, and on top of that you’ll be more likely to follow through… as you make small changes, you will actually be more motivated to make slightly bigger changes.” –Dr. Zoe Shaw Support is Sexy Ep. #773
  • “Showing up authenticity as yourself is the easiest way to mother, and it’s the healthiest way to mother. Hopefully, that takes a little bit of that guilt off of your shoulders, takes some of that burden of having to be perfect off of your shoulders.” –Dr. Zoe Shaw Support is Sexy Ep. #773
