Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves, even when we risk disappointing others. Brene Brown Waking up every day and loving someone who may or may not love us back, whose safety we can't ensure, who may stay in our lives or may leave without a moment's notice, who may be loyal to the day they die or betray us tomorrow - that's vulnerability.

Brene Brown We use work to numb out. We can't turn off our machines because we're afraid we're going to miss something. Brene Brown
