“…it is out of this space (failure) that the real genuine communication with other people starts to happen, because it’s a very unguarded, wide-open space where you look out your eyes – unless you are getting into the blaming yourself or blaming others – you can go beyond the blame and just feel the bleedingness of it, the raw-meat quality of it”-Pema Chodron Fail Fail Again Fail Better

I love your podcast! It's like a goldmine of useful info. I also love how you cannot help yourself from externalising those thoughts that come up. Mega cute :)
