She’s not my favorite writer but I do like to listen to her speak. She said, “Choose discomfort over resentment,” when she addressed setting up boundaries for ourselves. It is uncomfortable, but saying NO is actually a self-preservation tool for those who do or care too much for others.
Brown noticed in her research that the most compassionate, wholehearted people had the best and most boundaries. THAT MEANS YOU ARE NOT A BAD PERSON IF YOU SAY NO!!!!!!!
She also proclaims, “Comparison kills Creativity.” Or, as my good friend K says, “Compare, Despair.”
