Can I quote you on that?

  • “When I am hesitant to bring up an issue or an offense, it shows that I’m afraid this relationship isn’t going to survive me being upset: and that’s not a good sign.” Maggie
  • “It's O.K. for one of us to not be O.K., and for the other person to let them not be O.K. and not try to fix it.” Jacey
  • “Jealousy is never ‘loving’." Maggie
  • “One behavior that I know can be toxic is to expect any relationship to fulfill existential-type needs, to be for you what only God can be for you." Jacey
  • “Toxic relationships can sometimes look like relationships that are complacent.” Maggie
  • “When you enter into a relationship, you’re not ‘completing’ anyone, instead your doubling any incompleteness that exists.” Maggie
  • “If you have respect for yourself and know your value as a person and your value to God, then it'll be easier for you to stand up in situations that you need to.” Jacey
  • “I was picking my meals based on what I could dip in ranch.” Jacey
