“There comes a time in every woman’s life when she no longer depends on someone to love or accept herself as she is. The search for the other is replaced by the search for oneself when the desire to be perfect is replaced by the desire to be authentic.”

“Women are much stronger than we think. We are braver than we think we are. I think we are also more independent than we were taught to be.” she added.

“What woman hasn’t gone through the experience of looking for attention, affection, or approval from others and forgotten about herself? It has happened to me.”
