How we react to certain things is a great indicator of what’s going on in here.” [42:03]“This pain is here to teach me if I let it, and this pain is here to help me understand who I am and who I’m not…” [43:43]“I’m a perfectionist in reform. I thought, [...] I want to get through life perfectly, and that didn’t work, so I rather get through it truthfully. It’s not going to be perfect and that’s okay as long as it’s true I can live with that.” [44:21]“I allowed others’ perception of me to be my prison.” [50:05]Follow Devon:Website: https://devonfranklin.com/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKqTVGX0BZGQ5xPX98ibb4g Twitter:...
