“It’s easy to find all the negative messages about ourselves, but it’s really difficult to find those positive messages. Those negative messages inhibit our ability to answer fundamental questions like, ‘What are we about?’, ‘What are we meant to do?’, and ‘Who are we?’ . . . The lies derail us from living out our true identity.”


Dr. Gweon, in a lecture on self-acceptance available here.
