If you are willing to look at another person’s behavior toward you as a reflection of the state of their relationship with themselves rather than a statement about your value as a person, then you will, over a period of time cease to react at all.

You deserve to know the truth, heal, and reclaim your freedom. You are not here to suffer or age before your time. You are not here to live with symptoms and conditions that science and research don’t have answers for. You are here because you and what you can offer in this life is unique and important. And you deserve nothing less than to heal and live that out.
