Coming out to your spouse
Feeling guilt for not wanting to be intimate
Lucky girl syndrome
How to say no
Being okay with making mistakes
Writing a book
“I felt guilt for not being intimate with my husband.”
“A lot of beautiful things stem from pain. What my ex-husband and I have now is unshakable. If we can get through me coming out, it really says a lot about how we are good friends.”
“A lot of my postpartum anxiety stemmed from thinking I had to do everything perfectly all the time. I didn’t understand that I would make mistakes and that it is okay to make mistakes.”
“Motherhood is one of the first times I knew how to say no.”
“I swear I have lucky girl syndrome. It’s when you keeping thinking that wonderful things will come to you. I always think, what ever comes and finds me, is exactly what I need.”
“The overwhelming positive response I got from people after coming out was not only something I didn’t expect, but something that was so reassuring in that moment.”
“At the end of the day I am not responsible for anyone else. Not how they feel or think. I am just not responsible. It is a huge weight off my shoulders.”
