“There was only one variable that separated the people who have a strong sense of love and belonging and the people who really struggle for it. And that was, the people who have a strong sense of love and belonging believe they’re worthy of love and belonging. That’s it. They believe they’re worthy” (“The Power of Vulnerability” [TED Talk, June 2010], www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability).
Believe in yourself. Believe in your children. Believe that you are worthy of love.
