The impact of words



Here are some great quotes I ran across today. I wanted to share them with everyone because they speak volumes for humanity and that we are all in this together and we share such deep personal feelings with people that we may not realize. Also, in DBT, Radical Acceptance, emotion regulation and failing well are hard concepts to move on, yet these quotes hit on them so eloquently. Thank-you to the folks at goodreads.com!
Enjoy ~
