    Something about her just (profoundly) changed my life. I KNEW all of these things.. I just did not have the courage to accept it. I have been (dwelling) in a toxic relation that has been "over" for a long time. I now know that I need to not only say to hi, - It's over", but I am saying it to MYSELF... I deserve it.. SO MANY THANKS, Girl Up!

    I am so beautiful and smart and valuable. I am powerful. I can do anything I set my mind to. My value is not based on my looks. Nobody can tell me what I am worth. I am a force of nature. No one can stop me or tell me otherwise.

    I want to know what people think of "every guy you meet wants to sleep with you." If it's true, I think it's very disappointing. Besides, I don't know what the heck to do with that info.

    Beautiful points hit in one discussion:
    - Emotional being tied with the physical
    - Love in three ways
    - Mentoring and cultivating the youth, society’s “untapped resource”
    - Being authentically yourself

    Too bad she wasn’t trying to lift up adults. Adults need to also feel like there is still possibilities for them too. I don’t want to be told it’s basically over and my fate is sealed.

    Girls need Girls. when the adults shame the girls who are themselves in turmoil. no clue.
    Instead of devaluing. learn self worth and radiate that wisdom. even if you scar them, they can heal and grow and blow up like seeds into trees. but if your nourish them, this community will grow. and be filled wih women and men who understand self worth.
