Shannon L. Alder
“Empowered Women 101: Forgive yourself for having chosen to expose yourself to people who don't care about your feelings and help others to do the same. Enjoy life! It is as simple as changing your focus or perspective when you start thinking about people from the past who hurt your feelings. Eventually, you will forget about those types of people because your time and attention will be taken up by more positive things/people/events/activities etc. When you understand how much time is wasted trying to make people see you, understand you, respect you, value you, like you or agree with you...life becomes a pointless negative fight for validation that will drain your happiness. You are worth more than the indifference, inattention or crumbs people throw you. You are a queen that demands respect and God will bring the right person into your life to make you forget why you ever wasted your time on nothing important.”
Shannon L. Alder

“Self-compassion is critical in accountability. We often overcorrect by shaming and blaming
ourselves or under correct by avoiding ways to face accountability directly.

Using self-compassion doesn’t mean letting yourself off the hook for missteps, but owning them and still holding space to love yourself.

Adding compassion to accountability processes decreases shame and isolation and increases growth and connection.”
