Key Quote

“Maybe part of our problem as a society is that we have taught ourselves survival...but we have taught ourselves to suppress our emotions, so much so that not only do our emotions make us uncomfortable, but other people's emotions make us uncomfortable. And I think maybe we need to sit in there uncomfortable.” - Khalilah Elliott
