10:15: What are those moments where you're triggered positively and negatively knowing that it can actually help with your connection. It can inform you with how you tell it. Hey, look, this is just not as a situation or a good environment for me. I noticed that I do this and then you are the partner, or anyone you're talking to can say.
18:45: I say this all the time. In a world of nuance, we're governed by binary systems. So it's either this or that. What happens is people are either seen as trolls or politically correct.
30:20: If you don't have the ability to choose courage over comfort, we're going to be in a tricky place where we're not saying what we mean. We don't want to offend someone.
39:00: It happens on all ends of the spectrum. It's not when people bring that privilege, it's not to shame you at least I don't do it to shame anyone. It's more for the point that this is the reality for some people. It just happens.
47:25: Final Words
Our Final Words of the Show:
It's about getting to the point where everybody's growing together. That's one thing that I could wish for everybody, as soon as you can get out of that negative mindset and find a positive energy. We're still going to get beat up day in day out, let's be real. When you got that tribe around you, man, that energy that you get to hold each other accountable to and keep that positive growth on alignment. That's exciting!
