[00:0016:46] If I wasn't going to be heard, then I wasn't gonna speak. So I didn't speak at all and suffered in silence Jateya anywhere from 24 to 72 hours is what I would do because I was so stuck in my head. I didn't know what to say. I often felt trapped wondering if I would ever get to a place where I would be able to say what's on my heart without the fear of judgment, rejection or abandonment.
[00:0027:58] You truly can create the life that you desire, the life of your dreams, like you did that from jump for you and your daughter. It's very easy to revert back to what's comfortable, even the bad stuff, because that's what we know. So it takes work, self-work to either when you have that negative thought, stop yourself mid thought and be like, “No, no, no, no. My God is bigger than this. I'm bigger than this. I can do this.” Or “No, no, no, no. Like, yeah, everybody else is doing it, but I can do it differently and better. Or at least I can still do it.” And so being able to have that self-talk and accept the things about yourself to do the work for self-development. It is hard and anybody taking the first step, to even try to do that, should patch yourself on the back every step of the way.
[00:32:35] But I also see a gap when it comes to relationships around significant others and or your spouse; especially with multipassionates and not being able to communicate. Because I’ve seen this as always being the downfall. Especially when you are hopping around from passion to passion and they’re like look we're adults, we got real bills. I wanna help you, I wanna support you because I love you however, all I see is money flowing out of door and nothing coming back in.
