- [00:05:08 ] "It's really hard to be confident whenever you have a record playing in your head that becomes your own self-talk, that's voices of somebody else but becomes your own voice saying you're worthless, you're not good enough.” - Justin
- [00:13:09 ] “Self-care isn't selfish and doing the right things for yourself. The strongest thing I ever did was ask for help. And it took me a long time to suicide attempts to sense that treatment until I finally said, I need help.” - Justin
- [00:13:29 ] “When you face it all, feel it all, that's where the magic happens. That's the birthplace of miracles. And so not avoiding it, not running from it, but facing it head on and inviting in help, that's a game changer." - Justin
- [00:18:26 ] “The most confident soldier or warrior, fighter, person isn't the person that's driven out of hate for the person in front of them. They're driven out of love by the people behind them or alongside them.” - Justin
