From this episode:
" I had a lot of self-doubts, just everything crept in, and yet, other people around me always said, you're great, you're so successful. And all of that support and all of that conversation for me, I was almost fearful because it put me into a position of OK; now, I have to be successful. And it wasn't until I turned the corner or finally said, wait a second. It's OK. I don't know everything. It's OK, and I became OK with making mistakes. OK, with, quite frankly, looking stupid on stage, you got to make mistakes. And then you realize I'm OKOK. This wasn't the end of the world. " -Dr. T
"As much as we don't want to feel jealous, we feel jealous. And one of the things that I found out about jealousy is that it's really just about being stuck. And so that when you feel jealous, go, Oh, where am I stuck? It's OK that you're jealous. But where am I stuck? That is because then you can do something about where you're stuck. So anytime I get triggered that way, that's where I go straight to that. And I also do this other really wonderful thing. That is, I say, I acknowledge, accept, and I allow it. So you say I get that I feel jealous that so and so is doing better than I am. And I feel like I'm ten times as smart as they are, right? And I say I acknowledge it; I accept it. And I allow it. And what that does is it takes a judgment out because we judge ourselves so harshly. So that's why I do all this inner critic work and inner bully work." -Karen Abrams
