The Power of Vulnerability
"If I roughly took the people I interviewed and divided them into people who really have a sense of worthiness — that’s what this comes down to, a sense of worthiness — they have a strong sense of love and belonging — and folks who struggle for it, and folks who are always wondering if they’re good enough. There was only one variable that separated the people who have a strong sense of love and belonging and the people who really struggle for it. And that was, the people who have a strong sense of love and belonging believe they’re worthy of love and belonging. That’s it. They believe they’re worthy. And to me, the hard part of the one thing that keeps us out of connection is our fear that we’re not worthy of connection, was something that, personally and professionally, I felt like I needed to understand better."
I believe how lovely you are. back off anon, she's my best friend.
You are unbelievably lovely.
Why thank you, sweet anon. Likewise, I’m sure :)
"Do you think you would work harder if you were paid to be a student-athlete? No. No, you wouldn’t. Because as a student that stood out to me in a 300 person lecture hall and is now the only freshman to take one of my upper division research classes, I know you give everything all you’ve got."
A professor with a PhD said this to me today. *Reminder to myself for whenever I feel like an idiot… That I’m not an idiot.*
Love my dad:)
Tune in to ESPN2 tonight at 7pm to watch your Washington Huskies take on Stanford for game 3 of the series!
Y’know how I know I’m going to have a great day?
I’m wearing my superman underwear and just ate a frickin ton of raspberries.
That’s how. Booyah.
Why do you always feel so inevitable to me?
Nap on the plane or study on the plane?
