Quotes

“We often think of emotional intimacy in intimate partner relationships, I actually think it applies to friendships too. Those are the friends that you can go deep with, they know your fears, your hopes, and your dreams.” (17:28)

“Sometimes when we think of friendship we think of that person, but I also think it is really important to take the time to reflect on ourselves as friends as well. How are we showing up for people, how are we doing on those domains? Because there is this mutuality and reciprocity.” (18:57)

“Vulnerability has to be seen as a strength. And the more parents can teach their male children to be vulnerable, the better off they will be.” (27:12)

“I think that’s the beauty of life, things are always evolving and changing and the more positivity you can put out there, the Universe will give it back to you.” (34:58)

“All relationships that we engage in really help us figure out who we are and who we are to the outside world.” (37:35)
